We asked creators around the world to interpret the meaning of latitude through the ultimate language of self-expression: fashion. The result? A global tapestry depicting modern-day culture and identity, woven together by threads that feel as universal as they do unique.

Ladakh, India

“It’s really interesting to view identity and fashion as a culmination of sorts, of what has been inhabited over time and the functionality arising from the environment. With this story, we were more absorbed with looking at everything as a consequence rather than an expression. And Ladakh being an isolated place (for geographical and political reasons) really encouraged us to approach it that way. The culture in India exists as a mix of rural and urban and seems to always be in a state of flux. We wanted to isolate the various abstract ideas about borders, religions, and harmony and present them through pictures.” Vrinda Narang and Shubham Lodha
