Rezwana is particularly passionate about consumer behaviour and the role it plays in shaping sustainable fashion practices. Her current research is mainly focused on sustainable luxury fashion, and more specifically, how consumers balance their desire for luxury consumption with their attitude and behaviour towards sustainable luxury to achieve a harmonious coexistence between the two.

She is also fascinated by several theories within the discipline of consumer behaviour and has adopted Heider’s Balance Theory in her current research, which proposes that individuals strive for balance and consistency in their beliefs and attitudes to avoid cognitive dissonance.
