A Photographer Showcases the Sikh Turban

Meet the Photographer who’s Bringing together Turbans, British Fashion and 21st Century London Life.

Sara Shamsavari’s Dastaar: Fitting In and Standing Out exists to highlight this generation of male and female Sikhs as individuals who contribute to the richness of British society. They exemplify the idea becoming part of society whilst remaining visibly Sikh as they wear turban. Yet their style reflects Sikh culture, British culture and an array of popular cultural influences.

The project aims to emphasise the complexity of identity in a cosmopolitan city like London where cultures influence each other and like Shamsavari’s previous projects Dastaar is inspired by the idea of transforming prejudice and misunderstanding in to something new and beautiful.
