THE SARI SUIT

The cultural divide between the Bangladeshi community of Brick Lane in London and the corporate world of the City of London is huge, yet geographically they are so close, and there is an extremely sudden and fascinating transition between them.

Both areas have very strong cultural identities, which are, in both cases, represented very obviously by the clothing worn.

The sari-suit allows someone to express allegiance to both cultures without either being diluted. The integrity of both is maintained, whilst elements of each are brought together. In this way diversity is increased and community feeling can be maintained.
