Fashion designer, style icon, philanthropist and Bollywood's favourite queen bee, Parmeshwar Godrej passed away on October 10 after a prolonged lung illness.
From hosting parties for Bollywood and international stars to hobnobbing with the famous and lending support to social causes, businessman Adi Godrej's late wife made a name for herself at a time when women empowerment was an alien concept.
One of Mumbai's best-loved socialites, here's looking back at her life with the stars.
After briefly working with Air India as an airhostess, Parmeshwar Godrej designed costumes for actresses Hema Malini and Zeenat Aman in the 1970s.
She had a background in art after all, having been a student at the J J College of Art, a classmate of our colleague and friend Coomi Selod.
In 2000, she joined hands with filmmaker Shekhar Kapur and launched her production house, Starlight.
Parmeshwar Godrej championed many social causes.
In 2004, she teamed up with Hollywood star Richard Gere and spread awareness about AIDS through her Heroes Project.
She launched Inner Spaces, an interior design firm, in 1982 along with her friend, Sunita Pitamber.
She shared a great rapport with Vinod Khanna, the late Feroz Khan, cricket legend Imran Khan, Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao, Salman Khan, Gauri Khan and Tina Ambani.
She was good friends with Goldie Hawn and Richard Gere, and hosted a huge party for Oprah Winfrey when she visited India.
