Teenage Indian Fashion Designer is Aiding Dog Adoption by Designing Calendars

Dubai based Apeksha runs her own fashion brand Apek.

Dubai, January 6, 2020:  A Dubai-based Indian teenager, who is considered as one of the youngest fashion designers in Asia, has made a 2020 calendar with models in her creations posing with rescued and adopted dogs, aimed at spreading the message of pet adoption.

Owns her brand

Apeksha Binoj is just 14 and she has designed more than 200 outfits ever since she turned 10. She also owns her own fashion brand, Apek, with international models sashaying down the ramp in her outfits, Gulf News said in a report on Thursday.

She feels for dogs

Apeksha has used her “Gleam Cocktail Collection” to make the calendar with the theme, “Paws for a Cause”.The class 10 student decided to feature the dogs along with her muses after she learnt about many painful stories of abandonment and animal cruelty.“There are lots of dogs that were getting abandoned and were rescued,” Apeksha told Gulf News. “They were injured and starving. Many were caged for several months, with some eventually being put to sleep.”

Showcases rescued dogs

Shot by international fashion photographer Vipin Hari, the calendar showcases different shades of glamour blended with the innocence and elegance of the rescued and adopted dogs. The calendar, which will be gifted to animal rescue centres, welfare activists and others, also carries some inspiring messages that promote pet adoption.
