Omar Mansoor returns with his 10th collection titled Imperial Romance at London Fashion Week (LFW) 2015 featuring evening wear, depicting the context of Russian Revolution.
In Russian history the fashion revolutions always coincided with the greatest political changes: from Peter the Great to the Revolution of 1917 to Gorbachev’s Perestroika. The Revolution of 1917 made the Russian fashion adjust to the new Communist norms, which condemned everything “bourgeois” and extraordinary.
The collection is constructed with hues of white and ivory depicting the peace post revolution. The pre revolution Tsarist Autocracy is shown with Faberge imperial eggs inspired motifs, while the rise of revolution is communicated with military insignia and caps, the end of revolution peace is shown with white and gold silk flowers.
The diffusion line includes both knee and full length dresses along jumpsuits constructed using a range of fabrics from silk jersey, crepes to lace blended with Lycra.
