Kush Newatia is a British Indian designer and artist. His multinational upbringing influenced his understanding of the world. Kush’s Hindu cultural heritage as well as western thought and traditional techniques inform his styles and practice. He has been interested in natural forms with the most intimate being that of the body, this led him to fashion design as a pillar of his creative practice.
His practice explores the symbiosis between humans and flora through integrating academic and artistic research methods, defining the exploration process as his product and any physical outcomes as byproducts. Kush recently completed his BFA in fashion design at Parsons School of Design, New York. During his education, he worked for Ahluwalia and The Row.
