A Look Into South Asian New York Fashion Week's The Bazaar- A Shopping Experience

Attendees of the South Asian New York Fashion Week also witnessed the beautiful works of artisans, craftspeople, jewellery, and other sellers through The Bazaar, an initiative to create a shopping experience during the fashion week. Nate— an app, was the tech partner of this experience, allowing people to purchase their favourite looks with a few clicks.


The Bazaar worked as a platform where emerging South Asian labels who contribute to the small business community came forth to help people learn about their culture.
