Woven & Connected
Gianna Chun and Saloni Shah collaborated to design, construct and create the fashion line, Woven & Connected.
Woven & Connected aims to create a platform which allows for the exchange and interaction of various cultures in the world. Through garments, we strive to not only learn about the cultures we come from but also the cultures the models wearing the garments identify with. As differences that exist among us are feared rather than respected, conversations like these are extremely vital in the world we live in today. Our line aims to celebrate and appreciate the wide range of cultures in the community and hope it acts as a catalyst for dialogue between individuals all over the world, starting with our community. Woven & Connected believes diversity should move beyond numbers to genuine understanding and respect.
