"I'm very happy to have partnered with Festival of Hope this year for their wonderful initiative, in support of Cancer Survivors. Ever since I started my couture label, I've always tried to find different ways of giving back, and that's always been the main reason why I continue to do what we do. I have always been associated with the Festival of Hope and what better way to contribute to their amazing cause than with fashion," said Bahl.

"Festival of Hope, true to its name, brings sunshine into the lives of cancer survivors. It is an outstanding devotion and involvement to a very noble cause, which only selfless people can do. I wish Shalini and her entire team lots of happiness and continued success," said Archana Aggarwal, celebrity jewellery designer.
