This weekend independent artists will put their talents on display as RAW Orlando presents Fixate. RAW showcases indie talent in visual art, film, fashion design, performance art, photography and more at shows around the world. Orlando gets its turn Saturday.

Divinder Singh Malhan is one of the local artists who will be showcased. He creates handbags and women’s wear. Malhan said he always knew he wanted to do this for a living.

He said while fashion has changed over time, he’s stayed true to his aesthetics and art.

“I stayed very consistent and my work, most of it is hand-done,” said Malhan.

One of his sayings is that: Life can be complicated and involved, love can be bittersweet but handbags are freeing.
