"Anu Raina Collection- LG Canadian Fashion Week 2011"

Anu Raina’s story began in Srinagar, Kashmir where she was born and raised. A forced mass exodus from her homeland led her to pursue her undergraduate degree in Biology from Delhi University. However strong urge to be in a creative field led her to enrol in a Fashion Program at the London College of Fashion, London, England. Upon completion of her Fashion program, she went on to set up an apparel and textiles start-up "Just Beans" in Delhi.

Before moving to Canada in 2004, Anu participated in several design shows across the globe in cities such as Tokyo, Osaka, Paris and Frankfurt. In 2008, she enrolled herself in the Textile Design program at the Sheridan College.

Anu completed the program within 2 years and graduated in 2010 with High Honours, top medal and several awards and scholarships. In this short span her Textile work has already been shown at a number of well-respected venues across North America including being selected as an Artist-in-Residence at the prestigious Harbourfront Centre in Toronto.

Her recent autobiographical art work titled "Chapter 2, Page 1" has been selected for an upcoming exhibition at the Pearson Airport from 16 April - 3 October, 2011. Her Fall 2011, debut line of clothing that she is showing at the The LG Fashion week in Toronto on April 1, 2011 is inspired by her art work “Chapter 2, Page1. Currently Anu lives in Oakville, Ontario with her husband and two children.
