Oh look more hats.  Hot on the heels of Prahlad Kakkar, Nisha JamVwal’s personal hat collection came to life at Lakme Fashion Week 2009 at the Carlsberg Lounge. Ritu Beri also designed a special hat to add to the the millinery which was flown down from Delhi for the occasion.  The various hat connoisseurs included Mamta Raja, Mona Singh, Monica Vazirali, Navaz Modi Singhania, Ritu & Kiran Janjani, Ruchi Gujrati, Vida Samzai, and Viveka Babji.

I hear Sapna Bhavnani was also part of the celebrity “what style means to me” parade and got her gazillionth tattoo done there live. Carlsberg flew down a French tattoo artist (who now lives in Hrishikesh) I’m told there were no lines, it was all done in dots. Gosh that girl’s got guts (or very thick skin!)

On Friday evening at NCPA, Mumbai S.P.J. Sadhana School Celebrated 35 years of successfully bringing life and joy to the lives of some very special children. Students of the Visual Arts & Crafts Department in the fourth year of their course, showcased the extraordinary skills of the mentally challenged and painstaking dedication to creating a visual extravaganza designed and conceptualized by fashion guru Hemant Trevedi and the Sheetal Design Studio. (Hemant has been associated with the school for more than a decade and has orchestrated two successful fashion events, “The Awakening” (1999) and “I M Possible” (2004) for the school.)

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it and I’m struggling to find the right words to express what an absolutely brilliant experience this was.

The evening showcased 8 thematic sequences on the ramp and an exquisite performance by the unique dance troupe Nritarutya.  In addition Aruna Raje, a critically acclaimed film maker showcased her stirring film on the lives of these students as they put their hearts and souls into the project aptly titled “Because … I am.”

Dr. Radhike Khanna, the charming and unassuming Vice Principal of S.P.J. Sadhana School, spent the evening in the front row cheering and clapping for all her students who immediately flung her a flying kisses full of unadultrated love. At this point Juhi Chawla burst into tears and I know exactly how she felt.

Models like Deepti Gujral, Parvathy Omnakuttan, Mashoom and Shamita Singha, Candice Pinto, Kavita Karayat, Sucheta Sharma, Mridula Chanrashekar and Amit Gauhar sashayed in the stylish emslebles with  with hand painted florals, hand made jewellery in clay and beads along with the students who worked on the project.  The host Rakshandha Khan was her enegmatic self and enjoyed a little play-fighting with the show stopper Mona Singh.

Others who lent their support to this wonderful cause included Shobha De, Kunal Kohli, Haseena Jethmalani, Reema Jain, artist Brinda Miller, actress Madhu, Pankaj Udhas with wife & daughter, Anup Jalota, Queenie Dhody, Anita Dhongre, Sangeetha Kathiawad, Chhaya Momaya, Hemu & Naz Jhaveri, Bijal Meswani, Kedar Gawde of Celebrity and Manini De.

Dr. Radhike Khanna put it so well when she said, “Art is the finest way of doing anything.  Education that focuses on challenging the creative mental processes of an individual, results in the transformation of the human spirit. We are very happy and excited that our children have got this opportunity to display their unique talent. We were very thrilled with Hemant being such an integral part of our event “Because …. I am” which recognizes that our students are alive individuals with their own identity, complete and unique personalities.”

The students used the skills and techniques they’ve learnt in their course like brush strokes, stenciling, spray painting, paper quilling, beadwork, embroidery and silk painting to create high quality fashion wear. As witnessed in the film the concentration and focus with which they work helped them overcome their disabilities to become the young, talented and fresh designers of the Visual Arts Ramp.
