Sana Jaffery is a multi-hyphenated creative. From hosting art and meditation workshops to dabbling in the world of fashion, Jaffery’s art continues to evolve. One notable element in all of her work is her desire to introduce the world of traditional South Asian art to edgy and contemporary design – her mesh of the two worlds can be spotted in her graphic art and clothing.
Between sourcing traditional South Asian fabrics and prints into modern day athleisure or painting calligraphy, and block print inspired symbols onto old jackets and garments – no stone is left unturned. In her own words, an artist is one who turns chaos into masterpiece. https://www.instagram.com/jvff3ry/
Hani Pathan is inspired by literature, editorial photography and Matisse, Honey’s work is a hybrid between fashion and abstract art. As a multi-faceted creative she experiments with art direction, writing, painting on sneakers and clothing and freelance modelling. A constant theme in Honey’s creations is ever-evolving identity and binaries. She aspires to be a creative director one day and work with streetwear brands and high-end fashion houses alike. https://www.instagram.com/huneystudios/
