Maheka’s Attack on Cancer
DESIGNER Maheka Mirpuri recently held a fundraiser and charity gala show with a difference in Mumbai. Last year, it may be recalled, Maheka had launched an initiative to fight cancer under the aegis of her foundation MCan, which works towards providing financial assistance to the underprivileged in their fight againWWst the deadly disease at the Tata Memorial Hospital. Maheka Mirpuri was spurred to action after she lost her father and brother-in-law to cancer in a span of just one year. Meanwhile, the Move for Cancer Awareness event by Maheka combined glamour with giving. A live auction of ensembles, art, jewellery and a resort stay was held. The sit-down evening was themed around the quaint paradise that is Kashmir, complete with shikaras and lotuses. Vivek Oberoi walked the ramp in Maheka’s designs, while models sashayed the runway to soulful renditions by sufi singer, Kavita Seth. We applaud Maheka for her sincere effort and drive.
