Her note read: “I was honoured to present the Community Award tonight at The Fashion Awards. Such a well deserved celebration of 5 outstanding individuals and their work within their communities. Their innovation has made a huge impact on sustaining local livelihoods in light of the pandemic, and they have not only inspired us to take immediate action on important issues, but they’ve also shown us what is possible when you combine compassion and creativity to help others. Congratulations
@asaitakeaway, @chanelofficial, @emergencydesignernetwork, @kennethize and @halpernstudio and to all the honourees tonight.
In one of the appreciation posts for the designer, PeeCee praised the creator of her ensemble and wrote, “One of my priorities as the BFC Ambassador for Positive Change is to celebrate the extraordinary talent of South Asian designers. Tonight I’m wearing @kaushik_velendra, a South Asian born designer who is breaking stereotypes, pushing for more sustainable fashion, and changing the way South Asians in the industry are perceived. Not to mention, he opens up his studio space in London to South Asian design students who are struggling to find a place to create. Thank you for tonight’s amazing look. I can’t wait to see all the bright places your career takes you! And a special thank you to @luxurylaw for introducing me to this supremely talented human.”
