A unique women’s empowerment movement called Shenergy, which stands for ‘Synergy of the She Energy’ recently hosted a fashion show that aimed at breaking stereotypes regarding beauty and fashion

Shenergy, (shenergy.in),

a unique initiative on women empowerment, recently presented its fourth event in Goa. Titled, ‘The Beauty & The Feast’ the event was a unique fashion show that broke stereotypes and celebrated beauty the way it comes, in all shapes, sizes and colours; the models were people from regular backgrounds from Goa as opposed to professional models. The show gave the common (wo)man the opportunity to walk the ramp and showcase the beauty within them.

There was also a presentation by COOJ foundation, an NGO that works in the space of mental health and other related spheres.

For the fashion show, the theme revolved around the idea that fashion should be wearable, affordable, functional and accessible to all and not just for a certain body size or the ramp. New and upstart designers got visibility and opportunity to showcase their talents.

The designers included Hesha Harmalkar, Joyce Teles, Vibha Rewankar, Rachna Sharma , Ishika Latwal, Ritu Puri and Kim Pereira, who curated the Shenergy Collection, the proceeds of which go to Ish Kripa Sadan, a shelter for women and girls in distress.

The showstopper for the show was an exclusive Shenergy sari with works of painters Bhagvatinath and Amita Bamba and poet Bani Marathe printed on it.

The theme of the collections ranged from Purab Paschim (Indo- Western), Chameleon (multipurpose clothes), Rebirth (Upcycling), Royal Funky and a special Shenergy sari collection.

The show also had many talented women performing. Performances included zumba (Centina Fernandes), lavani (Janhavi Deshprabhu), Bollywood classical (Moumita), guitar (Sari Geron), singers (Sonia Chauhan, Ayesha Retro), dance and speech by little Kamakhya Singh, stand up (Kanan), dance (Jovita), hoop (Nikita Jadhv) and small children from DFDA performing a contemporary dance.

“It was a fun filled happy event, where women and young adults came together collectively as a community and ‘shenergised’ their positive energy for a good cause,”says Sonu Dabral, the founder of Shenergy.
