If updating your wardrobe with the hottest designer names at massive discounts, doing your bit for charity and taking in some eclectic live music sounds like your idea of a good Sunday, hop right on. After Delhi, The ELLE Carnival for a Cause — a 12-year-running event to raise funds for breast cancer patients  — drops anchor at Mumbai on April 2, and you’ll want to clear your schedule for this one.

5 things to expect at the ELLE Carnival for a Cause, Mumbai

1. India’s top creative minds are slashing the prices at our Designer Bazaar featuring Dhruv Kapoor, Bodice and Pero by Aneeth Arora to name a few. All merchandise is below Rs 10,000, so you’d better believe we’re serious.

2. ELLE’s fashion editors have curated a selection of the hottest names on the designer circuit right now at exciting discounts at the ELLE Fashion Booth. You could stumble upon 70% off on Isharya, Rara Avis, 431-88 by Shweta Kapur and many more, so make sure you get there early.

3. And did we mention that we’ve got live music by celebrated musicians from across the country to serenade you as you indulge in some heavy retail therapy?

4. Take a break from browsing the stalls and put in your bids at the Silent Auction that features high-end designer wear and luxury home décor brands. Tired from holding all those shopping bags? Grab a delicious bite and appetisers from our gracious host, Vivanta by Taj President, all included in the cost of your donor pass.

5. And well, we saved the best for the last: All proceeds from the ELLE Carnival for a Cause will be directed to the Ogaan Cancer Foundation, in association with the Women’s Cancer Initiative (TATA Memorial Hospital) that funds breast cancer treatment for underprivileged women.

Book your donor pass here before they’re gone, and to sweeten the deal, we’ll throw in a Rs 500 discount voucher from MyGlamm and a Complementary Hamam / Rs 1000 voucher from Spa La Vie by L’Occitane. Here’s a taste of what to expect:
