50 Stylish South Asian Fashion Influencers to Follow

Every time I open up Instagram or TikTok, I’m captivated by a flurry of fashionable and inspiring new posts by South Asian influencers. It seems like sheltering in place for many people has allowed us all to go back to our roots and focus on what makes us happy and what energizes us, which brings me to these inspiring influencers.

Being an Indian woman in fashion, I’ve personally been so excited to discover a diverse group of talented South Asian influencers who have been making me feel less alone at this time and embrace our culture even more. While I know what it feels like to be “othered” in the media industry, my mission has always been to shed some light on both my culture and its rich history in both fashion and beauty. I want people to feel like they can see a bit of themselves in an industry

South Korean Kim grabs Women’s PGA lead on birdie binge

South Korea’s Kim Sei-young, seeking her first major title, birdied five of her last six holes to seize a one-stroke lead after Friday’s second round of the Women’s PGA Championship.

The 27-year-old from Seoul fired a five-under par 65, including an event record-tying 29 for the front nine, to stand on four-under 136 after 36 holes at Aronimink in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.

“Just strategizing to attack the greens. I’d try to land it a little short so I can have some release, but it really helped me out,” Kim said.

“I tried to focus on my game. Honestly I didn’t look at the leaderboard. I was in a good momentum so I just wanted to ride on that.”

Seventh-ranked Kim has had six top-five major finishes without a victory, her closest calls being a runner-up finish at the 2015 Women’s PGA and a share of second at the 2018 Evian

South Asian Entrepreneurs in Fashion and Beauty Interview

Being an Indian woman in fashion, I’ve understood a lot over the years about what the effects that a lack of representation in media can have on a young person growing up. It’s important to see diversity across all platforms, which is why I thought it was about time to highlight the incredible South Asian women behind these amazing brands we can all appreciate and support.

Growing up, I didn’t really see anyone like myself in magazines, billboards, or on TV — I quickly learned that this is a sentiment felt deeply among many of the women I spoke to.

“There’s, unfortunately, a lot of pressure for many of us to follow a path that is more ‘secure’ or ‘sophisticated’ from our communities and families. At the end of the day, we all need to do what is right for us.”

“Just because we are all South Asian doesn’t mean

Women’s college basketball’s Way-Too-Early Top 25 — South Carolina still on top, Baylor rising

If we’re going to have a college basketball season, we are going to need rankings.

The NCAA announced that the 2020-21 women’s college basketball season will begin Nov. 25. Now, conferences are sorting out what a delayed start and 27-game limit will mean for scheduling and how to move forward with the NCAA’s health and safety guidelines.

But if we still don’t know everything about how the season will work, we know it’s on. And since six months have passed since any games were played, it’s worth taking stock of a college basketball landscape that no longer includes names such as Chennedy Carter, Lauren Cox and Sabrina Ionescu (not to mention Muffet McGraw) but still features the likes of Dana Evans, Rhyne Howard, Aari McDonald and Michaela Onyenwere.

We’ll do this again before the first game finally tips, but ESPN.com’s Charlie Creme, Graham Hays and Mechelle Voepel cast their votes
