People will stare…Make it worth their while!
A huge part of my process when putting this new collection together was literally “if it’s not a LEWK, then I won’t even bother making it.” Not gonna lie, this is the first thing I’ve made that really makes me feel some type of way.
And I’ve realized, having that confidence is truly so important!! If I could design a piece that could make all of you feel loud, proud, and invincible this would be the one.
Everyone always talks about wanting to feel empowered, and to me, especially as South Asian women, I feel like fashion is one of the outlets that will give us the strength to love ourselves and show people how important our stories are. We come from a part of the world where people are incredibly knowledgeable about fashion and have quite literally invented some of the most intricate & elaborate techniques in the industry. I want to take that part of our culture, which is so deeply engrained in our DNA, and make people understand it’s significance. How many times growing up did you feel shy or uncomfortable rocking Desi clothes in a non-brown setting? How many times did you feel like the bright colors, crazy patterns, and bling of our style were “too much” outside of special occasions?
Well it’s time to change that dialogue. Being extra is literally a part of our culture!
Let’s celebrate ourselves and be fearless about it. DO YOU and also do it for the culture too boo!
Also,(sidenote) how dope is my partner I’m crime @sonamnaidu?! Go show her some ❤️.
You can shop the AGNI crewneck/jogger sets plus individual crewnecks on @agnistyle.
