Talent and creativity can be tapped in the most unexpected places and Freesia, a Delhi based charity organization that promotes creative sectors embarked just to do that.

In their trail blazing initiative titled “Art and Fashion 4 for a cause” children and young adults with special needs joined their creative forces and abilities with country’s top designers and took their creativity to the runway.

An initiative that has been conceived and designed to break myths and misconceptions that children and young adults with special needs belong to a confined zone of their own.

With enough sympathies received and innumerable heartstrings tugged these specially blessed children and young adults now strive to be inclusive in all things mainstream and find a place for themselves along with all the others.

Roma Sahni, Founder Director, Freesia who is an alumnus BFA, College of Art while talking about the initiative explains, “I believe that Art can educate the challenged in ways to give them better opportunities of livelihood and it is about time to unlock their talents and help them find a place in arrangements apart from their comfort zones.  This is not to sensitize people of their existence but to make people realize that they can fit into any kind of profession if given a chance and avenue.” 

Joining the one of its kind initiative were celebrated fashion designers Malini Ramani, Varun Bahl, Shantanu & Nikhil, Ashima & Leena and also Freesia’s very own line Freesia Junior. This initiative caught the children and young adults with special needs in their creative best as they made hand printed designs and graphics on fabrics. Interestingly enough the fashion wizards left their creative cells aside and used the same fabrics to create their garments for the kids’ fashion show that was displayed. One could witness a lot of creativity and talent that went into the creation of the designs as the kids sashayed the runway in those ensembles.

Fashion Designers Ashima & Leena expressed, “I feel so blessed to be able to work in association with these special children. They are bursting with enthusiasm and creativity and everyone needs to give them a chance. That is all they need.”

Adding further fashion designer Malini Ramani who sounded equally delighted went on to say, “It was simply impressive to see all the children who are specially blessed loaded with so much of creativity and it would be unfair to let them go unnoticed.”
