Correctional Services, Govt of West Bengal and fashion designer Abhishek Dutta took a unique initiative of providing the inmates a direction for betterment by training them and providing them a career in the field of fashion at Presidency Jail, Alipore.
Eminent celebrities of Kolkata walked the ramp wearing their dresses designed by Abhishek Dutta to support the cause. Some of the celebrities who walked the ramp are Swastika Mukherjee, Paoli Dam, Gaurav, Ridhima Ghosh and others.
Presidency Jail’s manufacturing zone has been converted into the tailoring unit, where Dutta set up 30 stitching machines. He trained the people and also has plans of using the unit to make ready-to-wear garments. He has already started with kurtas, palazzos, dhoti pants and Nehru coats because these are simpler to make.
With such initiatives, the inmates will surely get a new direction of leading their life in future.
