About the Event
SUSTAINABLE SYSTEMS & THE FUTURE OF FASHION : In conversation with Leila Veerasamy, Founder of PA.NI Swimwear.
This masterclass is exclusive to FAD Students.
A true global citizen, Leila Veerasamy grew up in France and Mauritius and before moving to the US to study Development and Economics at Brown University. She came to Bombay in 2015 to pursue a career in the social sector, with special interest in helping scale up businesses with a triple bottom line.
She was working in impact investing when the question “Where can I buy a swimsuit in Bombay” came to her in a WhatsApp conversation between friends. Soon after, the analyst in her began to imagine a brand fit for the South Asian market with simple and modest cuts universally flattering to all body types. In 2016 she aligned her passion for fashion, ocean conservation and financial empowerment of artisans to launch a socially conscious venture of her own: PA.NI Swimwear, a sustainable swimwear line made out of recycled fishing nets.
