Afshan Durrani

Afshan Durrani, Fashion Design '96, founded Complete Unknown, a line of animal-free handbags embroidered with edgy designs by a collective of artisans in Lucknow, India. Durrani, who also owns a fine embroidery company called Lost City Products, is helping preserve this traditional art form. The name, Complete Unknown, references a Bob Dylan lyric; to her, “it evokes things of surprising beauty that have not been seen before.” Bags made of hand-embroidered polyurethane.
