I’m still absolutely buzzing about walking in yesterday’s Nasir Mazhar London Fashion Week SS15 Ready-To-Wear show. My first ever LFW show and I loved it- please let me walk again!!!
Back stage was surprisingly calm, although at one point I was sat having my make-up done, false nails applied AND being sewn into my outfit all at once! Hair was courtesy of Bumble and Bumble and nails by WAH Nails.
I’m also super lucky to be able to have walked for a designer who’s designs I actually really like and would wear. Nasir spoke to Dazed Digital describing ‘his girls’ as ‘still sexy, still tough but this time not so in your face.’ And that’s what every girl dreams to be, right? Not only that, but Nasir breaks from the fashion norm, which is something that I admire completely. Instead of using the standard industry models, his girls- and guys- are a little different. With a variety of ethnicities, heights and sizes accompanied by his unique designs, the whole essence of his shows definitely makes a statement and a loud one at that.
Claudia Walder at Polysterzine told, ‘I only hope he keeps doing what he’s doing, because he’s leading a new generation of designers who aren’t afraid to confront the dreary fashion industry conventions that are slowly killing creativity.’ To me, this sums up Nasir and his vision perfectly.
Nasir Mazhar is a very talented and current designer who’s collection caused a little bit of a storm yesterday. Watch out for his men’s collection too (and the yummy guys modelling the clothes of course)! xx
