The Heart for India Foundation is a non-profit organisation founded by Princess Françoise Sturdza, and this is the third consecutive year of this charity event.

“I am happy to be associated with this international event and to contribute my share to help the underprivileged children of India. Children are the future of the country and they need to be taken care of if India has to grow and prosper,” Puri said in a statement.

Puri is known for her unique luxury pret line in digital prints and for making the Kaftan popular. Her designs have been flaunted by international socialite Paris Hilton wore and Princess Francious of Geneva.

The designer's collection at the gala night, to be held at the Four Seasons Hotel, will consist of gowns. About 30 percent of the proceeds of the sale of her ensembles will go towards charity. Several elite names are likely to attend the event.
