Malvika turned a model to advocate accessible fashion and positive body image.
She walked the ramp as a showstopper for National Institute of Fashion Technology and Ability Foundation in Chennai to emphasize the need for designing clothes with functionality and style for people with disability.
Malvika said in an interview, “from personal experiences, my research and interactions with other differently-abled people, I know that the way we dress is important for self-confidence and claiming an identity against a society which often tries to tell us what we are. The considerations needed when it comes to clothing when you are differently-abled are as diverse as impairments themselves. Hence, functionality as well as fashion is important”.
