Anusha Shaikh is no stranger to the fashion scene in Goa, who has returned after spending some time in Bangaluru to touch hearts and make a difference in the lives of special children.

She has etched a name for herself in the fashion world there and is known for her bridal couture, with a label that is getting popular by the day.

Having successfully done many fashion shows in Bangalore, Anusha, who was born and brought up in the State, has returned to Goa with a mission.

My family owns and runs a special school in Curchorem and on every visit I am touched by how these special kids go a long way to make efforts to learn and do so much and I am inspired to include these special children on one of my shows, she says.

“I have decided to work with brands and associations and have got the support of Goa tourism and plan to host India’s first-of-its-kind fashion show that will showcase these special children on the ramp with my label,” explains Anusha.

Explaining her concept further, she says hopes to collaborate students, professional and well-known models, celebrities from India and call them on one stage. She is confident she can train and groom the special kids who suffer from dyslexia, autism, learning disabilities, down syndrome and other mental challenges and bring them on a professional fashion stage. Anusha’s desire is also to make the event a fundraiser for the special kids of Curchorem.

Right now she is in the process of finalising the venue, sponsors and has been busy in similar organisational endeavour, besides being in the process of auditioning school children from Margao.

Her list of professional models and celebrities and their participation for the event is ready.

The special kids deserve a stage to showcase their inner beauty and aesthetics and she feels the pride to do the same with her fashion label.
