Want to know what to expect from Lakmé Fashion Week, due this month? Well, for starters, Manish Malhotra will launch WEvolve, a global campaign that empowers young men and women to challenge norms that lead to gender violence. This show featuring ‘The Blue Fashion Runway’, is part of Lakmé Fashion Week’s 15-years celebration.
Manish shares, “It is a pleasure to be involved in the launch of this WEvolve global campaign that addresses gender violence. Fashion has a comprehensive and universal appeal and can thus be a powerful instrument to raise awareness and promote action. I congratulate WEvolve and Lakmé Fashion Week and am entirely overwhelmed to show my Blue Fashion Runway Collection and contribute to this great cause.”
More about the campaign: The WEvolve program draws on the power of creative industries including mass popular culture, fashion and social media to empower young people to challenge norms and behaviours that lead to gender violence.

The diverse array of partners includes Breakthrough, CARE International, Cornell University, International Finance Corporation, Ogilvy, Pearl Academy, Population Foundation, PROMUNDO, Show of Force, UNWomen, and World Bank.
