Anjali Phougat honored to design outfits for the Ohio State University fashion show victim of domestic violence | Bollywood
MUMBAI – Anjali Phougat worked with Ohio State University as a designer on a domestic violence and human trafficking fashion show. She said it was an honor for her to design outfits for a good cause.
Phougat believes that true beauty is within and people should grant privileges to others who truly deserve it, but who do not have enough potential or resources to fulfill their desires. She was honored when Ohio State University students approached her to design the outfits for this purpose. They offered their money to design the outfits, but she declined. The proceeds from the show will benefit victims of human trafficking and the education of victims of domestic violence.
As a designer and fashion man, Phougat wants to convey a message to the community that fashion is not just for outdoor looks. She believes that her fraternity members can always convey wonderful messages, like using recyclable fabrics and giving a platform to people who deserve it. In her opinion, there are a lot of beautiful girls who are lacking in resources and cannot find the right platform. She believes that design helps build confidence and helps someone build their personality, and wearing the right silhouette and clothes on stage goes a long way in building confidence.
Phougat helped create the award-winning short film Inclusion Through Unity about inclusion and gender equality, which is a big issue in the South Asian community. She thinks a lot of people are not talking about the LGBTQ community, inclusion or breaking false standards of beauty, helping victims of domestic violence, and helping victims of human trafficking.
The short film also recently received an award from the state of Ohio. Phougat shared the award with the film’s team, which was directed by Alex Rogers. She regards the recognition as a great achievement. The award was given to the film director and the entire team was honored.
The fashion designer and celebrity stylist took many initiatives even during the pandemic. She created a special designer mask and donated 100 hundred sales to an NGO that supports victims of domestic violence. She also donated many masks to health front workers in Ohio and provided PPE kits. Phougat also tried to do something for the community that supports education for children in slums in India. She donates a percentage of the sales she makes through her website and social media to a good cause.
