The singer hosts a fashion event in Aid of Pratham UK
If you thought Baby Doll singer Kanika Kapoor was talented wait until you meet her mum! Poonam Kapoor is a philanthropist and fashion designer and last week she showcased her new collection at an extravagant trunk show held at the Grosvenor House hotel in London. The charity event was hosted by her daughter Kanika Kapoor with proceeds going to Pratham UK, the largest children's charity in India.
Shoppers were spoilt for choice at the event which featured unique clothing and accessories from a variety of distinct designers. From the stunning tweed crop-tops and skirts of Drama Queen, a prominent Dubai brand by Bollywood celebrity dresser Barkha Shewakrammi, to gorgeous accessories from Amishi, a label loved by UK royalty and celebs, Opulence and Anusuya by Anu Mahtani and many more!
Kanika’s mum showed off a stunning range of Chikankari saris and suits collection. Poonam began her bespoke label through her charity KalaKriti to give jobs to less fortunate Muslim women who are experts in traditional hand embroidery. Other highlights at the event included the range by Sneha&Shahnin who flaunted their distinctive and quirky pure cashmere and silk capes. Sneha, one of the youngest designers, enthused about the success of the event: 'All the capes sold out with many guests placing orders - for a new label, this is very exciting for me!'
Speaking about being the host of the show, Kanika said: 'the event has been spectacular and the designers received a great response to their collection. I’m happy to have integrated young talent from three fashion capitals in the world all for a worthy cause.'
