A carnival for you, a fundraiser for breast cancer patients. If that sounds like a win-win, you need to clear space in your calendar for the ELLE Breast Cancer Carnival, where year after year, the biggest names in fashion throw their combined heft behind a big cause. This year, the pan-India initiative kicks off in Delhi on March 11. Here’s what you have to look forward to.  

5 reasons you need to be at the Elle Breast Cancer Carnival

  • Now in its twelfth year, ELLE Breast Cancer Carnival’s Music for a Cause brings together exciting new names in music, namely the gifted Sonam Kalra whose Sufi Gospel project is as good for your mood as it is for your soul. 
  • The Designer Bazaar allows you to update your wardrobe with the latest from Péro, Antar-Agni, Bodice, Dhruv Kapoor, Cord and more: all priced below Rs 10,000. Cue the jaw drop.
  • Don’t miss the ELLE fashion booth where our fashion editors have curated special pieces from India’s top designers at thrilling discounts. We’re talking up to 70% off on Shivan and Narresh, Payal Khandwala, Atsu, Amrapali and many more, so make sure you get there early.
  • Every year, the Silent Auction allows attendees to bid for designer products and luxury experiences from major brands. The proceeds will be directed to the Ogaan Cancer Foundation, in association with the Women’s Cancer Initiative (TATA Memorial Hospital), which funds breast cancer treatment for underprivileged women.
