While we patronise only jewels and jewellery, we likewise appreciate all things passionate
they are a part of. And this time, when we had some stalwarts of their craft, collaborate for
a fundraising event titled ‘Designing Dreams’ organised by NGO Breakthrough, the result garnered awe and admiration at once.
Breakthrough has been working for equal rights for women and girls since the past 20 years and has been fighting issues that put them into darkness. While the Yohan Poonawalla Foundation was one of the main sponsors for the event, Michelle Poonawala herself has been helping raise funds. For the show, the efforts of Rohit Bal, also a Breakthrough patron, who designed the outfits and Dia- Exquisite Diamond Jewellery, the jewellery partners helped bring sparkle to the heartfelt causes. No less were the Cause Ambassadors like the ever stunning Namrata Shroff, Pinky Reddy, Devaunshi Mehta and Chhaya Momaya who sashayed the ramp in Bal’s outfits, adding their own undeniable charm.
While Bal’s silhouettes brought glamour to the show, the jewellery teamed with it, cast a
royal spell. From pretty pendants to heavy-duty necklaces of all shapes and sizes, and from chandeliers to chaandbalis, and from aristocratic rings to dainty bangles and ethereal
bracelets, the variety was to die for. From intricate handiwork to Kundan, to polkis and
contemporary cuts, it was a total jewellery fest. We loved each and every look that
the gorgeous ladies exhibited with élan.
