The walkathon aims to promote handloom sari culture in India. Women from across the country were invited to showcase their ways of wearing saris and present India's ‘unity in diversity’.

Over 5,000 participants including Bollywood, television, sports personalities, businesswomen, influencers and housewives among others attended the event.

The “looking like a wow” trend was traced back to a woman named Jasmeen Kaur who was seen selling salwar suits enthusiastically, a video of which went viral. In the video, Kaur repeatedly uses the phrase "just looking like a wow" to describe the clothes she is offering.
