Looking good, walking tall

April 4, 2013, DHNS:

World Autism Day is celebrated with a special fashion show

Fashion with a social conscience. That’s what ‘Walking Tall, Walking for Hope, Walking for Tamana’, a fashion show to mark World Autism Day was all about.
The event, in support of Tamana special schools, was held at Hyatt Regency in
Delhi.

Tamana’s specially-abled students walked the ramp with principals of leading schools in Delhi and NCR, dressed in creations by Anuradha Ramam, Gautam Gupta and FabIndia.
Ace fashion designers Payal Jain, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Abraham and Thakore and Aneet Arora put up a spectacular show, where their creations were worn by celebrities such as Shalu Jindal, Tamana Chona, Sonal Kalra, Aditya Ghosh and Sunil Sethi who walked
the ramp with students of Tamana.

All the clothes, said the organisers, used organic dyes and were made with naturally woven fabrics. The evening was also marked by music and dance. Diwakar Sharma the Li’l Champ of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa had the audience — young and old — under his spell. Tamana’s dance show, ‘Reverse Integration’, highlighted the attempt to have children work in harmony with the specially-abled kids.

“Our annual show is a reminder that everyone has a right to look good and walk tall. Irrespective of their condition, children with disabilities should not be left behind, but given an equal opportunity to integrate into society,” said Dr Shayama Chona, president, Tamana. Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor was
the chief guest.
