“Uniquely intersectional, decidedly female” designer Supriya Lele has nothing but excelled since launching her refreshingly contemporary eponymous brand in 2017. A daughter of Indian doctors who settled in the West Midlands, Lele studied architecture but decided to switch to fashion last inute. After stunts at Roksanda Ilincic and Nicole Farhi, Lele did her Masters Degree at the Royal College of Art in London and then set up her own womenswear label. Her spring/summer 2019 collection was presented in sponsorship with NewGen, and since, she’s been an LVMH Prize finalist too. With a Nineties minimalism and subversive but still feminine base, Lele often explores her heritage in her designs. She brilliantly unpacks the tension of two cultures and “considers which aspects can be hybridised in perfect harmony” (Vogue UK). Oh the power of having multiple heritages.
