Akshat Bansal, 31, founder of the fashion label Bloni, says he designs for Generation Alpha (the successors to Gen Z). He recently showcased some of his work at Paris Fashion Week. His designs are typically size-agnostic and gender-fluid. “I like to push myself into unfamiliar, uncomfortable spaces. I thrive under pressure,” Bansal says. Here he talks about how he views the purpose of fashion; his design philosophy; and his vision for the future.
