Supriya Lele is the designer behind the acclaimed eponymous label based in London. Her work is deeply rooted in her own cross-cultural point of view, examining her Indian heritage and British cultural identity whilst creating work from a decidedly female viewpoint that tells a nuanced and delicate story.
Lele completed her MA Fashion (Womenswear) at the Royal College of Art in July 2016. Upon graduating, she was selected to showcase her work as part of Fashion East, debuting her at London Fashion Week in 2017 with a presentation in the Tate Modern. After showcasing under the Fashion East scheme for three seasons, Lele was awarded full NEWGEN sponsorship from the British Fashion Council. In 2020, Lele was awarded a portion of the LVMH Prize fund which was split across all 8 finalists for the first time.
The first Supriya Lele standalone show in September 2019 was a highlight on the London schedule for the SS20 season. Lele’s first campaign, shot by renowned fashion and documentary photographer Jamie Hawkesworth, was released the same month, with a follow-up campaign by Hawkesworth unveiled in 2020.
Lele’s work has been featured in publications such as British Vogue, Vogue Runway, The New York Times, Vogue Italia, Vogue India, i-D, Dazed & Confused, and The Gentlewoman.
Her ready-to-wear collections are carried by stores including Dover Street Market, Browns and SSENSE.
