It’s not that a picture is worth a thousand words, as evidenced by the visually impaired model walking down the runway in style to a standing ovation. Eight blind girls recently boarded Rajkot’s ramp at a fashion show organized by the Institute of Fashion and Jewelry Design (IFJD).
The girls accompanied the boys halfway up the ramp, after which the girls took the limelight on their own and received hearty applause from the audience. She wore a gown to complete her vintage western look.
The girls, who belong to VD Parekh Andh Mahila Vikas Graha, said they practiced for several weeks before appearing on the show. In her conversation with ANI, one of her visually impaired models, Jahnavi said:
“When we heard the applause from the audience, we realized we had done a good job and were thrilled,” said Isha, another visually impaired model. Bosky Nathwani, IFJD director and show host were very positive about the girls’ performance on the ramp as the show ended.
In a conversation with ANI, Naswani said: The show was graced by many dignitaries who did not hesitate to appreciate the girls’ modeling stints. (Ani)
