Republic by Omer Farooq at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2017
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.
