This awards season, Venk Modur styled Oscar-nominated filmmakers Smriti Mundhra and Sami Khan, who competed in the Documentary Short Subject category for their film "St. Louis Superman". They wore Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, Ashwin Thiyagarajan, Gravitas by Lisa Sun, and House of Wasee for events leading up to, and including, the Academy Awards.
"[Their] work is spectacular and we need to diversify this fashion conversation," Modur says. "We're seeing more Asians in front of the camera and they want to proudly represent their heritage. Using European design with eastern artistic stitching is a beautiful way to fuse cultures and really make quite a lovely statement on how we live in a global community."
