Child models had a field day at the Baby Beri Show

Bold and beautiful and sashaying to music are always synonymous with the ramp, but rarely does one associate all this with the innocence of a child in designer wear.

The Baby Beri Show was one such event held in Delhi recently, where the little ones modelled a collection inspired by the 1960s, designed by well known fashion designer Ritu Beri. The designer launched the Baby Beri brand in 2009 and presents an annual ramp show by children. While some of the little models got nervous, others seemed to be having a great time, but all of them stole the hearts of the audience.

The event began with the auction of a T-shirt initially priced at Rs.50,000, which finally went to Jay Panda, well known socialite, for a hefty sum of Rs.5 lakh.

The funds raised would be used to educate children with autism. The auction was hosted by chief guest of the event Abhishek Bachchan, in aid of the foundation Blessed Hearts, a charity that works for the improvement and uplift of less privileged children.

“I am blessed to be associated with such a wonderful cause since it is about awareness and brings to notice children with special abilities,” said Bachchan.

“The Hippie Baby” was the theme for the runway walk. The collection displayed had 12 different categories, and designs varied from quaint black and white patches to desi bling on kurtas and ghagras.

The little ones accessorised with stand-out funky glares and shoes. There was also a seamless blending of the casual look with a tribal touch. The ‘occasion wear’ comprised elements of peace, love and freedom.

“It’s fun to dress kids who today are very fashion conscious. However, a few of my collections are also up for auction and the fund will be allocated to underprivileged children in support of the cause,” said Beri.
