“I am thrilled to join the British Fashion Council as its Ambassador for Positive Change,” said Chopra in a statement. “Fashion has always been the pulse of pop culture, and can be a powerful force with the ability to connect cultures and bring people together. Through my role, I look forward to celebrating the incredible diversity and creativity of the industry, while working to champion budding and iconic designers doing their part to make an indelible impact on people and our planet.”
