People love Bollywood and are hugely influenced by its fashion and lifestyle. That’s what I want to share with discerning fans and, after several successful events in India, we have now brought BollyGoods to the UK for the first time.”

Promoting BollyGoods Edition 2, London in the UK was London-based luxury consultant, influencer and stylist, Shivani Ahluwalia.

BollyGoods Edition 2’s official charity partner was The British Asian Trust, founded in 2007 by HRH The Prince of Wales. Focusing on South Asia, a region where 500 million people survive on less than $2 a day, the Trust understand that the root causes of poverty go beyond a shortage of money, food and shelter. Complex issues with education, healthcare and employment opportunities keep many people on the margins. In response to this need, their programmes work to improve the quality of education, facilitate skills and training to support livelihoods, highlight the urgent need to combat child trafficking and to break the silence about mental health issues. To date, they have had a positive impact on the lives of more than 3 million people through a pioneering approach of collective giving to create impactful and sustainable change.
