Designers including Vikram Phadnis, Monisha Jaisingh, Alison Woodham, and Surily DP Goel made exclusive garments in collaboration with students of the Gateway School of Mumbai for the “Unique but United” (UBU) exhibition. The clothing was then sold, along with homeware, to raise money for the school that caters to children and young adults with different learning needs.

As part of the collaboration, Monisha Jaisingh created a line of t-shirts and hoodies that featured designs by the students. “The collection is only manufactured by me but the creative and design work has come from the minds of the talented students of the Gateway School,” explained Jaisingh. “It just shows that creative talent is inborn irrespective of your abilities.”
 
Seema Khan created a capsule collection of customised denim garments and Vikram Phadnis incorporated artwork by the students into traditional wear. Surily DP Goel used textiles that the students had woven themselves in a workshop and incorporated other embellishments as well. “It was absolutely amazing working with the students and faculty of the Gateway School of Mumbai,” said Goel. “We have actually used fabrics that the students have woven themselves on handlooms, and given it our signature touch.”
