I always wanted to help but didn't know where to begin and who to trust… the Smile Foundation gives me the perfect platform to blend my clothes with a good cause.”
The collection is for the modern multi-tasking woman who knows her mind, the endeavour is to strike an emotional chord with the youth as well as the women of today.
