Host, illustrator, fashion creative and consultant Arooj Aftab has been breaking down barriers in the quest for inclusivity within the fashion industry. Arooj is now recognised as an industry tastemaker and poses important questions about the language we use to promoting real and meaningful diversity.
In January 2020, she launched her #donewithdiversity project, which sees her combine her passion for inclusivity within the fashion industry and her talent for illustration. The project aims to encourage brands and publishing platforms to rethink the language they use and consider if they are truly inclusive to all.
With acknowledgements from Vogue, Bustle, Stylist Magazine and more, Arooj has been navigating the way for meaningful and long-lasting conversations about accessibility in the fashion industry, working creatively outfacing and internal with luxury and premium fashion brands and clients.
This year she was announced as the new host for Tommy Hilfiger's Fashion Frontier, where we saw her present six finalists from all around the globe and interview Tommy Hilfiger and CEO of Tommy Hilfiger, Martijn Hagman.
