Award-winning filmmaker, Amit R Agarwal was recently invited to New York Fashion Week to be on the panel of jury of a few fashion-shows. Hailed as the Top-Show amongst the ‘Big 4’ fashion weeks of the world, Agarwal hit a perfect double-whammy in New York. Other than the New York Fashion Week he was also invited to launch his second book, ‘The Making of Virgin.. Mira’. There he was interviewed by the coveted team of indie-filmmakers collective, a formidable association of filmmakers and creatives in New York.

Zeel, a student from Mumbai, studying production-design craft of filmmaking said, “the book is a textbook on how to get your first film made”. Emmy nominated producer and restaurant-owner, Tirlok Malik said that the book is a must-read for anyone associated with any craft of filmmaking. He said he is happy that the book is now a reference book in five colleges in India and abroad. Agarwal said that he is elated for this honor and was surprised that he was invited to few fashion shows at the prestigious NYFW as jury, “I have been attending fashion weeks in India and Europe, but the Manhattan vibes are something no other place in the world can beat.”

Agarwal also represented Gem Mines based in India at the NYFW and shot a few promotional videos with the models walking the fashion week. The models lauded the pearl-necklace sets gifted by Gem Mines.Speaking about the book launch in New York, Agarwal said that the book launch is unconventional as it is an extended year-long book launch. He thanked his publishers Red Grab books and the founders Parag Agarwal and Venus Kesri for believing in his vision. “In New York in two months, we had three extended launches and book readings, right from a high-end rooftop lounge immediately next to the Empire State Building to a college. But the most exciting aspect about the launch is the launch at the Secaucus Public Library”.

Hailed as the biggest and the most prestigious library networks in the world, the 3rd and the last leg of the US launch of ‘The Making of Virgin.. Mira” will be done at the famous Panasonic Room of the library on March 19, 2023.
