If we can manage to target the best influential audience, those people in turn can influence at least 10 more people. So these shows have a great ripple effect on people," he explains. Every year there are at least three such shows he is involved with and most of the time, it is the people of the organisation themselves (especially children) who walk for these fashion shows instead of professional models. "These shows help these children ...
