Republic by Omer Farooq

Republic by Omer Farooq is set to showcase its ‘PARADOX’ collection at PSFW taking 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 colour palette for the collection was based on 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.
