It is with great pride that we announce that close on the heels of our very successful Men For Mijwan Fashion Show in Mumbai on 1st April 2014, The Mijwan Collection by Manish Malhotra is being showcased at IIFA ROCKS in Tampa USA on 24th April 2014.
Leading Filmstars from Bollywood such as Anil Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha will be walking the ramp for Mijwan Welfare Society showcasing the exquisite chikankari of Mijwan women in ensembles designed by Bollywood Designer and Couturier Manish Malhotra. This wonderful collaboration is not underlined just with financial investment but also the time spent on refining and reviving the art form. A craft that has been around for years is being brought into the limelight by giving it a characteristic "nowness", reflecting Manish's signature contemporary design aesthetic.
The 3 day IIFA Awards are recognised all over the world as the definitive Bollywood Bonanza a global movement spearheaded by Indian cinema. Mijwan Welfare Society will leave behind its footprints on the Opening Night of IIFA and generate awareness and support for the need to empower our villages in India with a focus on the girlchild.
3 outfits worn on the ramp will be auctioned at the show. All proceeds will go to Mijwan Welfare Society.
“My self is all to me. I don't have any need of you.”
These lines form Joyce Carol Oates came alive when a new avenue of income for the women of Mijwan started last week. They have started making Incense Sticks (Agarbattis) to sell in the market with the help of Dr. Azmi & Mr. Shamim.
Initial target is to make 300 packs of sticks, which will later on be at large scale. Our women could get upto Rs.10,000 p.m.
Mijwan women are very happy & hopeful for the success in future.
