He came from rags to riches and yet has a heart of gold, Vikram Phadnis is Bollywood and India’s most wanted fashion designer but he gave his time to the Giants Group of Nairobi-Twiga for the charity fashion show on Sunday 30th June at the Safari Park Hotel, Nairobi. Joining him was the famous Shaina N C who has been nicknamed “The Queen of Drapes” as she has over 50 styles of wearing a saree and she is also the Deputy World Chairperson Giant. Giants Group of Nairobi-Twiga organized the event and the entire project was co-ordinated by Mukesh Desai their Chairman and his wife Chetna Desai.
All models volunteered their time and even though they were not all professional they certainly did a great walk for charity as the fashion show was raising money to supply sanitary towels to over 2000 schoolgirls all over Kenya and to maintain the Karura Primary School that the group had adopted. There were courageous poems from the girls and boys of Karura Primary School, a spectacular acrobat show by the Safari Cats and songs by Alisha Popat. The sarees by Shaina N C were gorgeous and Vikram showed off his new collection that was interesting.
