Iconic Indian fashion designer Manish Malhotra will make his British catwalk debut this month with a charity fundraiser in aid of The Angeli Foundation.
Established in in 2005 and with chapters around the world, The Angeli Foundation highlights issues related to Saving the Girl Child, raising awareness about issues ranging from female foeticide to inequalities in education for women.
Speaking ahead of the event, Malhotra said: "I work in an industry where women are revered and respected. I have had the privilege of dressing some of the most beautiful and powerful women in the world, but when I step out of the door and into the stark reality of India, I see the injustice and inequality all around me.
"The Angeli Foundation is providing an invaluable service to these girls and women. The charity helps them raise their self-esteem, confidence and ultimately value themselves enough to get a voice. Without women, I wouldn't be where I am today and so I want to give what I can back to an organisation like Angeli that celebrates womanhood."
Malhotra is arguably India’s most famous designer with his creations worn by the likes of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor as well as Hollywood starlets such as Demi Moore and Reese Witherspoon among others.
The Manish Malhotra Fashion Extravaganza in aid of The Angeli Foundation will be attended by a host of celebrity guests from the worlds of international film, fashion and entertainment.
The event takes place at The Grosvenor House Hotel on Saturday, February 23, 2013.
