Being an Indian woman in fashion, I am thrilled to discover a diverse group of talented South Asian influencers who inspire me to embrace our culture even more. I know what it’s like to be “followed” in the media, so it’s always been my mission to shed light on both my culture and its rich history in both fashion and beauty. I want people to feel like they can see a bit of themselves in an industry that doesn’t always glorify people who look like us.
Before that, I spoke to a number of style influencers about what culture means to them and how it affects their personal style.
“I’m happy to see. Feel represented.”
One of such influencers, Bangladeshi content creator and Zeba Founder and CEO Nabela Noor, says she’s looking for size uniformity in fashion. “I look forward to more outreach opportunities with community bodies in the future,” she told POPSUGAR. “I still don’t understand why we’re living in 2022 and the average size of a woman in the US is 16/18, but most brands don’t even carry those sizes.”
“I’m happy to see, feel represented,” she added. “I’m excited at the prospect of being able to discover trends and feel as stylish as a plus-size woman. The time has come and I’m glad the industry is ready to see and listen to us. ”
