About Redefining Concepts
Redefining Concepts is a full-service creative and talent agency, specialising in connecting young talent to the creative industry, while amplifying diversity in the fashion world.

Co-founded by Aminah and Sadia, Redefining Concepts originally started life as a social media platform, with the duo meeting hundreds of creatives in their first year alone. The next year, the platform relaunched as an agency, with 300 people attending their launch event in Soho. Today, their clients include the likes of Saatchi Gallery, London School of Economics, Refinery29, Nike and Adidas.

As well as running a photography studio in Canary Wharf, Redefining Concepts offer packages integrating photography and influencer marketing, and are also developing their own mentoring scheme.

About Aminah Ali

Breaking stereotypes around both the industry and her faith, Aminah is also a model and has worked with companies such as ASOS, Schuh and Superdry.
