Designers at stalls are busy selling and showing their clothes to buyers, but at the same time they have taken out some time to raise and support one of the sensitive social issue of our country- 'Child Labour '.

FDCI has designed a 'pledge wall,' which says 'A pledge for a better future' at the venue where all the designers are writing there views and urging to stop child labour.

"Our youth are the future; please do not use child labour. It is a sin beyond that ruins the innocence," writes Ashish Soni, who is going to present his show along with designer Ananmika Khanna at the grand finale.

"Don't talk just support child education & be with them for support everyone needs," writes the designer duo Ashish & Vikraj.

Designer Charu Prashar's message shows her love for children. "I love kids, have two of my own. Do you make your children work? So how can you think of other children working. Abolish it!

Deepika Govind shares her nobel views, "Everytime I see a child on the street. I think of mine. I pray that besides banning child labour. We help them; let them live life with dignity."
