Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

An Evening with Waris Ahluwalia


Time: Monday, September 17, 2018 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: Archie Griffin Ballroom

Waris Ahluwalia is driven by a deep and abiding desire to create stories, products and experiences that captivate, transport, and shift perception. In 2007, he founded House of Waris, a company dedicated to exploring design through hand craftsmanship. Waris was nominated for the Vogue Fashion Fund and soon after awarded the CFDA Incubator Grant. As an actor, Waris has worked with acclaimed directors such as Wes Anderson, Spike Lee, and Luca Guadagnino. From fashion campaigns to design collaborations, over the years Waris has worked with brands such Kenzo, The Kooples, Gap, Tory Burch, Gucci, APC, and Holt Renfrew to name a few.

Waris’ other passion lies in the world of conservation and social justice. For the last 10 years, Waris has been deeply involved with preservation efforts of the Asian elephant and its habitat. In the fall of 2016, the Mayor of New York City proclaimed October 19th as Waris Ahluwalia Day for his work in spreading tolerance and inclusivity through his creative and social impact endeavors. Working across the globe, and across disciplines, Waris exhibits an unwavering commitment to creating a more thoughtful way of living. 

Tickets for Waris will be available at the Ohio Union Information Desk beginning at 5:00 PM on Thrusday, September 6th. Students must have a valid Buck-ID in order to pick-up tickets.
