The day I agreed to be the style partner for Vivek Oberoi’s charity event “Set Beautiful Free”, I knew that this year’s Raksha Bandhan is going to be a special one. Right from designing the outfits for the girls to spending time with them, every moment was an exhilarating one.
Walking into the green room backstage on the day of the event, the excitement of the little girls was palpable as they sprinted around. It was gratifying, to say the least, for me to see them so euphoric. They were ecstatic to get photographed in their lehengas.
When the power women who were to walk with the girls entered the event in my designs, I felt a sense of pride because each one of them looked stunning. Madhuri Dixit Nene looked ravishing in the cream lehenga that I had put together for her. Mary Kom carried of the anarkali kurta with great elan proving that she is not just good in the boxing ring. While Amruta Fadnavis was a picture of confidence as she strutted around in the structured yet flowing long dress, Shikha Sharma, the MD & CEO of Axis Bank looked elegant in the sari I had put together for her. The other iconic women present were Nita Ambani and Yashoda Oberoi.
