Omer Asim’s Spring/ Summer 2017 Collection
On the evening of the 17th September and the second day of LFW, the streets surrounding Elms Lesters Painting Rooms bustled with the intrigue of what was to come during the building’s split presentations. On the ground floor, the audience weaved through partition walls creating an entrance to Omer Asim’s SS17 presentation. This was his third collection featured in LFW, and frankly London has become obsessed with his innovative sculptures.
The warm glow of the spotlights shone down upon the striking collection, as models held their stance on white plinths scattered across the stage, towering over each of us. The breakdown of gender values is mirrored within the designs, as a mixture of both male and female models embrace the couture with a cross-over of both historical and contemporary aesthetics.
During a short conversation with Omer, he described to me his unique vision in terms of design. His outlook rarely changes, which is clearly visible when comparing the architectural qualities of his previous collections shown at LFW. The work purely acts as a progression, and is seen to him as a continuous story of which he builds upon.
