Tamana NGO collaborates with FDCI for fashion show
Tamana, a non-profit organisation has collaborated with the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) for its annual fashion show which will take place on September 8 in New Delhi.
The fashion show titled “My India My Pride” is inspired from India’s singular status as a modern, leading economy that is also one of the world’s oldest civilizations with traditions that go back 5,000 years.
Renowned designers will showcase at the fashion show with the differently-abled walking the ramp along with the models.
Commenting on the show, Dr Shayama Chona, founder and president of Tamana in a statement said, “I strongly feel that the differently-abled are here with a purpose and I second their proclamation which says, We are proud to be different because being different is what will help to change the world to become a better place to live in.”
Sunil Sethi, chairman FDCI added, “Jillian Mercado was the first disabled model with muscular dystrophy, who won a contract with a leading model agency, this paved the way for including people with disabilities into the mainstream, internationally. In India, we are doing our bit to create space for those, who have been marginalised, and Tamana has been the frontrunner in this movement.”
Tamana students will walk the ramp with principals and students of mainstream schools in the creations of designers like Avnish Mehrotra, Asha Gautam, Namita Bansal, Heena Kochhar, Poonam Bajaj, and Rachna Imam.
FDCI designers Amit Aggarwal, Anju Modi, Nitin Bal Chauhan, Payal Jain, Reynu Taandon and Samant Chauhan will bring the curtains down on the show with their collections.
