Breaking stereotypes at the sixth edition of India Runway Week 2016 here, transgender rights activist Laxmi Narayan Tripathi walked the ramp for jewellery designer Akassh K Aggarwal along with actress Mandira Bedi.

With Bedi as the showstopper for Aggarwal, the show launched the designer’s new spring-summer collection “The Coeur Collectives”.

“The collection comes with a social message of gender equality and sensitisation. It refers to the modification of behaviour by raising awareness of gender equality concerns,” Aggarwal said in a statement.
