Ash Rana was born in Kathmandu, Nepal. He attended high school in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan where he grew up loving Western pop music and Bollywood movies, attending temple services where women wore silk saris with t-shirts, and men donned blazers over kurtas, traditional baggy drawstring pants and long shirts - a mix of ancient custom and improvised modernity that would forever inspire his work. Rana left Asia to study fashion design and illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. After graduation he veered into nightlife, working as a performer and door personality at clubs and restaurants in New York and later South Beach. In 2000 he launched his fashion company, Ash Rana Inc and designed clothing for major pop acts including Colombian rocker Juanes, country singer Tim McGraw, and rap stars Lil Kim and Trina. 
Ash travels regularly to Asia where he collaborates with local artisans on beaded and hand loomed fabrics as well as collecting heirloom fabric pieces that he incorporates in to his current work.
