South Asian Fashion Week 2019

I was honored to be invited to the second annual South Asian Fashion Week (SAFW) in Vancouver, BC this past weekend! I’ve never seen anything like it as it was an incredible show. I’ve always been into traditional menswear clothing, but only recently I’ve been interested in learning more about Indian-inspired fashion.

The setup was similar to a traditional fashion runway show, featuring incredible pieces from some of the best local talent in South Asian design. When I attend Indian weddings, I notice that women usually wear the best outfits you can imagine. Well, at SAFW, there were some amazing designs and selections from recognized shops like WellGroomed Designs, House of Raina, and Sim & Sara.

There were two menswear lines that I absolutely loved. They really caught my eye and made me feel proud of how great men’s fashion can be!

I had a great time mingling and chatting with some people I knew in Vancouver. It’s always good to expand outside of your own network and make connections all over the world! Here are some pics outside of the show:
