The Man of the Moment – Mr Omar Mansoor.
This was Omars 7th season showing at London Fashion Week. I had the honour of modelling Omar’s gorgeous dresses a few years ago. I can say from experience how luxurious the dresses feel on, they are created to perfection and really flatter a woman’s figure.
This year, Omar took us on a journey to the Golden Age of the Opera, inspired by ‘Madama Butterfly’ staged in London in 1900. This play has two characters, the teenage Butterfly (Cio-Cio-San) who falls in love with an American naval lieutenant in Nagasaki. He abandons her, and then returns with a wife. After a first-night disaster, it became one of the best-loved operas.
Omar’s collection consists mainly of the two colours, royal blue and black.
The royal blue colour depicts the merry days when the couple is together while black represent the gloom in the story. The collection consisted of multiple silhouettes from sleek gowns trimmed with satin to dresses embellished with filigree embroidery and sequins as a synthesis of fashion and art.
A combination of day and evening wear, the prêt line includes both knee and full length dresses constructed using a range of fabrics from Chantilly lace to Satins and Velvet blended with Lycra for the perfect body shape.
The way the fabric moves on the models body creates an elegance, each piece is a divine creation of art. In particular for me, I love the detailing on the back of the dresses. Simplistic yet eye catching and sexy.
The show at London Fashion Week was a huge success and no doubt many more successes to come from Omar Mansoor. You can visit his website here. All photo credits have to go to the fabulous Shahid Malik.
