Anisha Vasani  said, "The purpose behind the campaign is to celebrate positively through the virtual platforms and to appreciate our challenges and achievements that we have all faced this year.

"It had deeply saddened us all that we will not be able to celebrate Diwali this year with our family and friends.

"Annually I always curated a themed Diwali photoshoot campaign to celebrate the talented British Asian women that have accomplished great achievements in our industry and this year despite the challenges from Covid-19, we wanted to spread faith and prosperity into the start of the Hindu New year and to share the important positive message that love and light lives deep within all of us and there will always be light over darkness and good over evil. We will get through this time, stronger together."

Roshni Ladva said, "Collectively as creatives we wanted to come together to shed positivity on the challenging year it has been for small businesses like myself and how we have been impacted by Covid 19, we wanted to share the joy of Diwali and what never was, what could have been , was more to us than anything else, is the ethos behind the campaign."

Qaizer Azim added, "Though this campaign we wanted to uplift everyone’s spirits and celebrate the phenomenal  British Asian talent we have in our industry and spot light them and assure all the businesses, brands and the Hindu community that the future is bright, and we will celebrate again in the near future, everyone must keep healthy safe, this Diwali."

The team said, "We would like to thank all of the partners that have been involved in this project and that have supported the inspirational campaign that we have launched this week leading up to Diwali.
