Jamshedpur, June 7: City-born Australian actor Saroni Roy joined the AFTERPAY Australian Fashion Week 2021 (AAFW 2021) Resort 22 Collections held at Carriageworks, Sydney, promoting South Asian presence at Australian fashion industry’s biggest event.
As Ms India Australia Goodwill Ambassador and a body-positive advocate, Saroni is the first Indian-origin brand ambassador for world’s leading body-confidence brand for women, Nancy Ganz and has been redefining the narrow ideals of beauty in the Fashion and Entertainment industry with her Diversity & Inclusion campaigns.
Roy showcased what the next generation of fashion looks like, swaying in animal print to understated black pencil dresses, and was adorned by AAFW 2021 DIGI COUTURE’s Toni Maticevski and The Fabricant’s Animator Overcoat.
“Though I was happy to see the diversity and inclusion in this year’s AAFW, it was disappointing to see the lack of South Asian representation and body-diversity. That would be my plea and hope for the future of Australian fashion industry,” said Saroni.
The 2021 AAFW presented a dynamic and engaging program of physical and digital offerings for the fashion industry and for fashion loving consumers. From runway shows to panel discussions to the live Lady-Brains podcast, the Indigenous Fashion Projects runway show, and Afterpay’s Future of Fashion Runway.
Saroni is today an actress, known for Risen, Greed (2020) and A Troubled Town (2019). She is based in Sydney, known for her television and film roles. The talented actress and model has worked in several American, Australian and European projects.
Daughter of former Tata Steel official Saroni was also awarded the Peace Ambassador title in 2019 for her incessant contribution towards World Peace by International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG).
Recently, during the celebration of Global Citizens and National Volunteer Week, Saroni was an integral part of the UNAA NSW project planning team and worked and performed as a volunteer.
