Republic by Omer Farooq showcased its ‘PARADOX’ collection at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week. The collection took its inspiration from the Japanese work-play balance, Paradox explored the contradicting sub-cultures that seem to harmoniously evolve with one another, much like the current state of fashion that is generated by a number of opposing influences seamlessly blending into each other.

The collection made use of cotton, denim, jersey, tropical wool and a variety of silks to create structured silhouettes. The color palette for the collection was based in primitive colours like black, white and grey; showcasing utility and practicality synonymous with Japanese industrial workers which were balanced off by detailing the pieces in bursts of colour and collage like photographs; taking into account the fast paced night life prevalent in Japan.
