The evening also saw Tamana Chona, dressed in a designer outfit, which wrapped up the event as she expressed her gratitude to the distinguished audience at the show. 


For the last 10 years, Tamana has been organising this event to encourage inclusion and with the support of the fashion fraternity in their individual capacities. Dr. Shayama Chona, Founder and President of Tamana NGO said, “This year’s show tagline is ‘Infinite Opportunity’, which means that the opportunities for the disabled have no barriers. The reason for holding the Tamana fashion show, every year, is to bring greater confidence and dignity into the lives of the specially-abled. I believe that these individuals are not lesser but, more than any of us.”

Sunil Sethi, President FDCI said, “It is an honour for us to associate with the devoted efforts of Tamana year by year. Tamana’s annual fashion show has over the years depicted that fashion does not discriminate and the differently-abled can also fulfil their aspirations of looking fashionable."



















Tamana was established in 1984 by Dr. Shayama Chona, ‘Padam Bhushan’ and ‘Padam Shri’ awardee. As the name suggests, Tamana navigates the dreams and longings of the children with special needs and those of their parents to see them as rehabilitated members of our society. Its contribution in the field of disability was also recognized by the United Nations that granted it Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council.



Tamana provides comprehensive rehabilitative services to individuals with intellectual impairments, multiple disability and autism.  The services provided include special education, therapeutic interventions, skill development and gainful employment, life skills training etc to enable them to become confident and integrated members of society.





The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), a not-for-profit organisation, is the apex body of fashion design in India and is represented by over 400 members. It was formulated to promote, nurture and represent the most incredible talents in the country in turn promoting the business of fashion, in India and globally. It organises one of the biggest trade event in Asia, the annual ready-to-wear, India Fashion Week (Autumn-Winter and Spring-Summer), and the yearly luxurious offering, the India Couture Week which has become a much awaited extravaganza by India’s top couturiers.



However, besides being in the sphere of fashion, it has always been true to the soundtrack of the soul with its myriad CSR initiatives, which includes working with the NGO Tamana bringing to light the need to be socially aware. We hope these small steps make a big difference in the lives of billions and gives a voice to the silent.
