FAITH AND FASHION:
British Asian design—many faiths, many styles, many meanings
Uniquely catering to different religious communities and ethnicities, British South Asian fashion creates diaspora designs that trend around the world.
As part of a series of events at London College of Fashion on the theme of Faith and Fashion, Professor Reina Lewis talks to designer and entrepreneur Mani Kohli and Asiana Wedding magazine editor Anisha Vasani to explore the interaction between commerce, creativity and community.
Launched twenty five years ago, Kohli’s Khubsoorat collection has amassed loyal fans from Britain to Bollywood, whilst as editor of Asiana Wedding magazine and now also at Asiana TV, Vasani has had a front row seat on the Asian fashion scene, determining trends and building markets. Join them as they discuss Asian fashion design after ‘boho’, the significance of celebrity endorsement, and what the global fashion industry could learn about accommodating the design needs of a diverse customer base.
