Raised in London, with Pakistani and Rajasthani heritage, Barjis Chohan drew inspiration from her multicultural background, becoming passionate about diversity in art and design. To pursue this passion, she trained at the London College of Fashion and MA at Central Saint Martin’s. With a great deal of hard work and talent, she was chosen to work for Vivienne Westwood, gaining invaluable experience and practical training.

Despite being an avid traveller, Barjis noticed it was a struggle everywhere she went to find clothing that reflected her values and style. So, in 2011, she started her own label, Barjis London, which allowed her to fuse her British and Asian values. Her goal for the label was to create luxurious yet modest fashions for the modern professional woman – like herself!

Barjis has had great success in the fashion industry with her unique and accessible luxury brand. She has been recognized with several awards, including Businesswoman of the Year in London, Designer in International Trade – awarded by The Daily Mail, and she was runner up in UKTI Female-owned Business of the Year. In addition, she is a great public speaker and is regularly seen on BBC She has also been featured in four documentaries for Belgian TV, BBC Radio 1, BBC World News, Islam Channel, and Malaysian TV.

Keynote speaker Barjis Chohan doesn’t let her success go to her head! Barjis is actually equally passionate about helping those in under-developed countries to succeed in creative endeavours. To achieve this, she founded The Barjis Initiative in 2016. This initiative provides opportunities in arts and enterprise to disenfranchised women, children and the youth around the world through various social and governmental channels.
