Designer, Stylist and DJ: Kesh

Kesh is an English fashion designer, magazine editor, stylist and DJ based in the East End of London and New York. Hmmm...looks like this brit does it all.

Kesh's father is of Malaysian descent and her mother is of Trinidadian heritage. She attended Southgate College but is believed to have been kicked out for fighting. Soon after, she formed the DJ collective The Coconut Twins with Zezi Ifore. The two met on the set of an Ears MC video shoot. Kesh is close friends with artist M.I.A. and has appeared on stage with her as a dancer during her KALA Back to P.O.W.A. Tour in 2007. Kesh has also designed for other artists. She showcased some of her work as part of the MAN London Fashion Week for Top Man, and modeled for designer Katherine Hamnett and Basso and Brooke at London Fashion Week and for Nike in Milan.

Soon after She launched her eponymous label Keshwear - a fusion of 1980s clubwear and modern street style. Her designs have been worn by musicians including M.I.A., Mariah Carey, Lupe Fiasco, Dizzee Rascal, Big Daddy Kane, A-Trak, Jammer, Kanye West and T.I.

Kesh made her New York Fashion Week debut in September 2008. The show was held at Anonymous Gallery in SoHo and was sponsored by The Fader magazine.
