 Emmanuel Ray is a London based "It" boy and Socialite, living the British equivalent of The American Dream! His column and book both titled "Diary of an It Boy" is being tipped as London's answer to "Sex In The City". Born and raised in extreme poverty during Sri Lanka's civil war, the young Emmanuel lived in slums and shanty towns and moved around with his family without a proper home. He dreamed about becoming a Fashionisto, while watching television programs such as Caryn Franklin's "The Clothes Show" and "Style with Elsa Klensch", while performing domestic duties in a house in a better neighborhood. His story of going from being a troubled child growing up in the slums of war-torn Sri Lanka to becoming a London Socialite and style guru is the subject of a documentary film being made by British film director Nirpal Bhogal.
