India | Sri Lanka
Friday Sari Project is a new concept space in the heart of Dulwich Village. It is a platform for contemporary design and culture inspired by the Indian subcontinent. Through a curated and immersive selection of workshops, talks, film nights and launches you will be able to taste, see and experience India and Sri Lanka.
FSP founder Mehala Ford was born in Sri Lanka and raised in the UK. She pursued a stimulating career in the fashion industry. Starting a personal blog in 2017 to explore a modern way to wear Sari and stay connected to her heritage, Mehala explored the fashion and design scenes of India and Sri Lanka and the Friday Sari Project was born.
FSP aims to shine a much deserved light on contemporary design and culture, inspired by and originating from India and Sri Lanka and to present it in a fresh, modern way, under one roof.
All of the designers and makers selected share an innate quality to grow their businesses elevating the remarkable skills, materials and processes from the land they love. Crafts of the past and future have been adopted by a generation of empowered creatives who are producing not only incredible work and products but also sparking new dialogues.
This work spans film, food, fashion, photography, art, graphics - we hope to capture a snapshot of this in the Friday Sari Project Space by hosting a series of workshops, talks and film screenings from September to December alongside our Store.
We are excited to work with Dulwich Estate and transform what used to be a car showroom and are thrilled at the idea of repurposing it into a multi-faceted space. Living in Peckham, one of the most diverse, creative and vibrant areas of London, it felt natural to set up locally and hope that enjoy the space draws visitors to the area.
Friday Sari Project opens June - December
