The Maharaja Ball fundraising event for the Down Syndrome Foundation Nigeria (DSFN) held on 9th May 2015 at Eko Hotel & Suites in Victoria Island. A marriage of Indian and Nigerian culture the ball was well attended by notable and celebrities.

The Indian themed Maharaja Ball was organised by Poosh & the KSL Foundation to raise funds which will be used to establish the DSFN’s housing and educational facilities. A non-governmental, non-political and, not-for-profit association, the foundation supports children with Down Syndrome, as well as their parents, guardians, care givers and other interested stakeholders.

The evening featured Indian cuisine, Indian Designer Tarun Tahiliani showcasing his  Spring Summer 2015 collection  on the runway and performances including Tiwa Savage.

Some people went all the way donning saris and … while others interpreted the theme a little more loosely
