Honoring Renowned South Asian Designer Ranjana Khan

South Asian WOMEN designers are in the spotlight at the first-ever Fashion For Compassion runway event, presented by South Asian Young Women Entrepreneurs (SAY WE), in association with Saavn.com and media sponsor Divanee Magazine. Honoring iconic jewelry and accessories designer Ranjana Khan (designer for First Lady Michelle Obama), the fashion show will showcase the talents of other South Asian designer labels such as Pria Kataaria Puri, Amrita Singh, Atelier Azza, and Rani Emaan’s on Monday, September 12, 2011. Additionally, more than 250 crème de la crème of NYC’s fashion, entertainment, and business worlds are expected to attend this star-studded evening of decadence and charity, aimed at raising funds and awareness for Wishwas (means “faith” in Hindi), an organization that helps empower underprivileged South Asian women through entrepreneurship right here in NYC. 

The exclusive after party will be hosted by Kanye West’s DJ, MILLION DOLLAR MANO. Tickets are still available and are between $100 and $300; to order tickets and for more information, please visit www.sayweonline.org

Ranjana Khan


For years Ranjana Khan has applied her vast knowledge of embroideries to create instantly iconic pieces of jewelry and accessories. She has become one of the world's greatest authorities on embellishments, sharing her unique insight and experience with renowned couturiers like Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alber Elbaz, and Alexander McQueen. Now, with the launch of her own collection, she speaks to an audience entirely her own.

Born and raised in India, Ranjana brings Bombay to New York via Paris, the disparate influences of her life forming an aesthetic that combines hard and soft, dark and light, masculine and feminine, leather and tulle.

Ranjana subverts the entire idea of what jewelry can and cannot be. She treats precious things in an almost cavalier way—using acid and flame to achieve a desired look. There are no rules or preconceptions to her work. She applies opposing elements in striking combinations that convey an emotion or tell a story.
