Reina Lewis is joined by designer and entrepreneur Mani Kohli and Asiana Wedding magazine editor Anisha Vasani to explore how British South Asian fashion caters to different religions and ethnicities, creating diaspora designs that trend around the world.

Launched twenty five years ago, Kohli’s Khubsoorat collection has amassed loyal fans from Britain to Bollywood, whilst as editor of Asiana Wedding magazine and now also at Asiana TV, Vasani has had a front row seat on the Asian fashion scene, determining trends and building markets.
