Omar Mansoor LFW S/S ‘15 “Mata Hari”

By  | 

Omar Mansoor returns with his 9th collection at LFW featuring couture gowns inspired by Mata Hari,   Her style and free-willed attitude made her a very popular woman.

Omar picks up the contrasting red, turquoise and light gold colours. Turquoise colour depicts the early struggling part of Mata Hari’s life followed by golden colour showing her peak and red communicating the end of her life’s story.

The collection features full size ball gowns and knee length dresses made up of Vintage lace, crepe silks and chiffons. The old technique of hand woven crochet is applied on selected gowns while some features semi-precious stones such as turquoise and rubies encrusted with embroidery on the gowns. The show stopper dress is decorated with hand appliqué known as Rilli (an art from ancient Sindhi civilization) is produced with help of female artisans of rural Sindh.

By combining classic couture crafting techniques along modern silhouettes, Omar creates an elegant look for a woman, who symbolizes the confidence, merriment and splendour.
