US Embassy School students host fashion show for a cause

Feb '14
New Delhi, the capital of India witnessed a unique fashion show by American Embassy School students for women empowerment cause to raise funds for underprivileged women towards their education and vocational training.

This year the event was organised at the residence of Dutch Ambassador Alphonsus Stoelinga, who endorsed the event saying that India was the next global fashion destination.

The kids designed the garments, got them tailored and put the entire show together on their own. Four senior students conceived the project last year in collaboration with the New Delhi Hub of World Economic Forum's Global Shapers Community.

The main aim of fashion show was to raise funds for charity arranged by a non-governmental organization 'Work and Shelter', which is involved in supporting poor young women after the brutal gang-rape of a 23-year-old physiotherapist student in Delhi on December 16, 2012.

This project was setup to achieve a task to not only advocate for change, but also to play an active role in creating it. The financial assistance such an event could generate for WORK + SHELTER and women in need would be immediate and enduring.

The event was attended by several celebrities including Actress Pallavi Sharda,  Fashion Designer Pawan Sachdeva, Entrepreneur Shalini Chauhan, Latika Kohli, Paul Chmelik, School Director, American Embassy School,  etc., who praised the efforts of the students.
