Manto’s lead actress Rasika Dugal turns showstopper for Vriksh and endorses sustainable fashion at the Lakme Fashion Week 2018


Rasika Dugal, who will soon be seen on celluloid in Nandita Das’ Manto with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, has another feather to add to her cap. The Qissa actress made her debut as a showstopper last evening walking the ramp for an organic fashion label, Vriksh, at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week.

Rasika has always been an advocate for sustainable fashion and has often been spotted wearing organic brands at different events. The actress who was recently at Cannes this year also wore sustainable fashion at various events of the film festival. The Vagina Monologues star was seen walking the ramp for the first time as a showstopper for the brand and is giddy with excitement at the thought of it. “I am honoured to be a part of Vriksh’s debut show at fashion week. I am always moved by the precision and the craftsmanship (or should I say craftswomanship) involved in the art of weaving. I am grateful for this opportunity to celebrate that skill and to celebrate the sari in Gunjan’s exquisite designs and drapes which is a harmonious blend of the traditional and the Individual”, she said.
