Taslima K has collaborated with the fashion brand Tomme to produce powerfully designed collection of items for Nike, standing in support of Race Equality Week at the beginning of February.
The Taslima K x Tomme collection is a true testament to the UK-wide initiative taking place from 1st-7th February, designed to enhance race relations and race equality across the UK…without forgetting the environment.
All items within the collection are hand-made from sustainably sourced off-cut materials, contributing to the positive zero-waste fashion movement. “Everything I design and create has a social educational purpose”, says Taslima Khan.
Nike’s Fashion Line collection CHANGE MAKEAIR - headed up by Taslima Khan in collaboration with Tomme was fashioned to celebrate living in multicultural spaces and being comfortable in our own skin. With this in mind, various powerful items have been produced including unique basketball bags and sweatshirts.
The CHANGE MAKEAIR fashion line by Nike has successfully championed its guest designers as changemakers and community heroes, as well as the vibrant and multicultural city of London that is home to artistic creators such as Khan. The design of various skin shades that make up the basketball bags embodies the message of inclusivity and the diversity. London is a community that has always provided Khan with endless amounts of passion and inspiration for her work as an artist, designer, stylist and activist.
With joint efforts like this, there can only be positive impacts for London and our communities now and going forwards.
