Dr. Aneel Kashi Murarka an Industrialist and Philanthropist by heart has been working towards the Gender Inclusivity for Transgenders through AMPLE MISSIION Foundation. It is these efforts that struck a chord with the organisers who for the first time are hosting a Fashion Show presenting Trans Models on ramp wearing a beautiful Rainbow themed collection by celebrated Designer Archana Kochhar. Transqueen India winner Navya Singh and Transgender activist Laxmi Narayan Tripathi were the Showstoppers and the concept and initiative both were received with a thunderous applause in Mumbai.

Dr.Aneel Kashi Murarka has in the past worked together with Transgenders on several occasions like collecting Food Relief Funds for the Kerala Floods in 2018 and to celebrate 1 year of Article 377 and taking another milestone step; towards inclusivity for all genders in our society, AMPLE MISSIION happily supported the Trans Models on the Ramp.

Elated on the occasion Dr.Aneel Kashi Murarka said, “This cause is very close to all our heart’s at AMPLE MISSIION and today when all these beautiful souls sashayed on the ramp wearing designer clothes and when most of them had these glitter in their eyes but confidence in their walks and received a warm applause from the audience, it felt, we have arrived and the journey has begun.”

Looking stunning in the Archana Kochhar outfit and with a sparkle in her eyes, Laxmi Narayan Tripathi said, “It was such an honour to walk the ramp today amidst all the uproar and I had amazing fun but at the same time would like to thank Aneel ji from the bottom of my heart for giving us this platform and making us feel so special.” Adding to the excitement, Designer Archana Kochhar says, “For the very first time we are doing a gender inclusive show with 50% models from fashion week and 50% transgenders turn model. I truly believe that we can be a stronger society only if we are gender inclusive. The same thought is reflected in the collection I showcased as well. Banjara 2.0 has a beautiful rainbow of colours used in the embroidery which is an interpretation of rainbow and colours of Pride.”
