Actress, Zareen Khan said, “Very happy to see that we had a great turnout. The Plus Size Fashion Show by aLL at Lakmé Fashion Week is an excellent initiative in bridging the gap between fashion and plus size consumers. aLL's motto of 'Fashion is for one and all' is something I believe in since at some stage I was also plus size and had no option but to dress in anything that fit and was available, not necessarily being what you want to wear".
Hetal Kotak, CEO, aLL, The Plus Size Store, said, “We are dazzled by such a heart-warming response to the auditions. With such a fabulous turnout this year, we expect our third runway show to be bigger and grander than last year. At aLL – The Plus Size Store, we’re always looking at bringing a fresh and trendy collection for our consumers. We value our relationship with Lakmé Fashion Week, IMG Reliance and Narendra Kumar for partnering and lending their valuable support in creating India’s Biggest Plus Size Fashion Show”.
Jaspreet Chandok, Vice President and Head- Fashion, IMG Reliance Pvt. Ltd, said, “Lakmé Fashion Week has always stood for inclusivity in fashion, and the plus size show that we do each season is the testament to our belief that fashion is for everyone and not just for a specific set of people. We want to grow this movement as the years go by”.
Narendra Kumar added, “It has always been a pleasure to be associated with Lakmé Fashion Week. Judging this event, in particular, was very overwhelming, because of the contestant’s confidence, perseverance and spirit. Varied personalities came to the auditions today, and the winners thus chosen are a great combination of different sizes and talent. I am delighted to be with aLL - The Plus Size store this season at Lakmé Fashion Week and I am sure these models will carry the line with great panache”.
