Amruta Fadnavis was the chief guest for a fashion show by students that highlighted age-old Indian arts and crafts.

At a recently concluded fashion show 'Maharashtra Power Walk', organised by the National Institute of Fashion Technology, young and creative minds showcased outfits that focused on reviving Maharashtra's tribal culture through art and craft, along with other dying art and weaving forms.

To support and encourage the students, prominent celebrities and models adorned the ensembles styled by them on the runway.

Here's a glimpse of the collection!
