Mumbai Meri Jaan: Fisherfolk on the ramp

May 15, 2017 17:20 IST

Mumbai's dabbawalas, taxi and auto drivers, fisherfolk walked the ramp for a fashion show.

What better way to celebrate the spirit of Mumbai than with a fashion show dedicated to the people of the city.

Pearl Academy hosted their annual graduation event 'Portfolio 2017' in Mumbai.

As part of their campaign #MumbaiByDesign, the students of the academy got dabbawalas, taxi and auto drivers, fisherfolk and even cops to turn models for a show. 

Don't believe us? Take a look!
