Reina Lewis is joined by Sikh blogger Pardeep Singh Bahra of Singh Street Style and Peter Hopkins, Professor of Social Geography at Newcastle University, to explore masculinity, modesty and modishness.

Remedying the tendency to see contemporary trends in religiously related fashion as a girls-only pursuit, the panel explore how religious and ethnic identities are communicated and contested through men’s wardrobe choices. In the run up to the London Collections: Men, panellist and audience contributors consider how design innovation can serve men’s diverse religious needs and the potential of style cultures for social empowerment.
