We had the good fortune of connecting with Farhan Chowdhury and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Farhan, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My total thought process behind starting my own business was to bring change in fashion industry. My Brand of companies supports all races, all heights and all weights in fashion industry. I couldn’t just sit and watch differences in fashion industry . I had to do something. So i started my own companies. When i am the owner, i don’t have to request anyone to do anything for me. I can just simply do it in my way and chose whoever i want. And i chose everyone. I don’t see any differences in anyone. All i want to see is passion of doing something .
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
United Together has the simple goal of bringing together different cultures, designers, and traditions of many different styles by uniting them together. Every aspiring designer, model, and artist has a dream-and we want to learn about it and give them those opportunities. We are redefining fashion and beauty standards to be an all inclusive ordeal that incorporates everyone, regardless of background or experience. When we unite together, we flourish with our common passion: a love for art and fashion.
We are a creative consortium of hardworking designers, models, and entrepreneurs from around the world with one common passion: the art of fashion. Our goal is to share that passion with all, redefining the fashion industry to have no limits and include all with a desire to expand their fashion career. United Together is just that: uniting other designers, models and entrepreneurs from all parts of the world, regardless of experience, background, or appearance. Everyone deserves a chance, an opportunity, an experience to achieve their dreams-and that’s what our whole goal is here with our show: United Together.
What makes us different from other fashion shows is our objective of acceptance for every individual in our artistic community. Instead of discriminating against individuals, we celebrate our differences and allow each personnel a chance to both teach and learn from others. We break the mold by inviting everyone to be a part of our show, despite people’s race, culture, sexual orientation, gender, religious practices, and more. Every person is creative in their own way-and everyone deserves a chance to show their talent.
United Together has the goal of expanding to different parts of the world with shows that emulate the different cultures that we celebrate. United Together will have new designers and models depending on the location, allowing every aspiring entrepreneur and artist a chance to display their hard work. We look forward to learning more about different designers along the way, and thank you for accompanying us on this journey.
Definitely it wasn’t a easy journey.But all i knew if i can make this happen, i will be able to help so so many people.I learnt a lot of lessons along my journey. I got to learn about lot of people, their story, their challenges in everyday life. And that definitely made me a better person.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I think my shoutout credit goes to my parents. I started my journey when i was six years old.. They are my biggest supporter since day One. Mom is working in fashion industry for last 35 years as fashion designer. Dad also worked as producer and manufacturer as well. So whole credit goes to them for helping me with everything till today when i am confused or have some trouble taking any decisions. Of course i wouldn’t be anywhere where i am today without my models,designers,stylist, make up team and my amazing media team, They are all my family. Best part about my business is we all work like family and we are there for each other no matter what. We all help build each other. I couldn’t have done it alone.it wouldn’t be possible also without the support of love of my life Nazia.
