Dewan said: "I am happy to share my collection and support the effort towards betterment of women's health and creating greater awareness for related issues."
The designer's autumn-winter 2017 collection of gowns, dresses and Indo-Western creations in peaches and black are designed with the festive season in mind.
With lace imported especially from family mills in Calais, and the most elite lace makers in Paris such as Sophie Hallette and Riechers Marescot, the fabric is the hero.
