"aLL's motto of 'Fashion is for one and all' is something I believe in since at some stage I was also plus size and had no option but to dress in anything that fit and was available, not necessarily being what you want to wear. Having fought for body positivity all my life, I am very excited to be part of the jury," said Zareen.
Narendra Kumar added: "It has always been a pleasure to be associated with Lakmé Fashion Week. Judging this event in particular was very overwhelming, because of the contestant's confidence, perseverance and spirit... I am sure these models will carry the line with great panache."
aLL-The Plus Size Store has collaborated with Narendra Kumar who will be designing ‘aLL PRIMERO' Collection, for aLL's Autumn Winter 2018 collection. This line will be showcased at the fashion gala and would be available in stores at the same time.
The collection will cater to the needs of its plus-size customers.
