I participated in the Children's Hope "Passport to India" Benefit at New York City's Chelsea Peir this past October. Over 700 people attended, raising $260,000 for impoverished children in India. CH is unique since it is entirely volunteer-driven. In the past 12 years, it has raised money for child medical care, fresh food and water, and access to education.
About the designer:
Manish Arora's designs are inspired by exotic cultures, but principally show the heavy influence of Indian design. Most of the fabric is handmade in India by local artisans. The fabrics range from raw silks, georgettes, Thai hand-woven silks, satins, knits, velvets, and faux fur in many-hued colours; combining different colors, textures, and embellishments is something Manish Arora is famous for. This was surprisingly a toned-down version of his usual highly theatrical shows.
