We like… Osman Fall/Winter 2014

British born Osman Yousefzada was making clothes from a young age. His mother ran a couture dress making business in Birmingham, where Osman cemented his love for cloth and its workmanship. He went on to study Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins before launching his own label in September 2007, and has been showing at LFW since 2008.

He received NEWGEN sponsorship for three seasons (SS07 – SS08). Osman was nominated for the annual Designs of Year 2007 award at the Design Museum, which features the best 100 designs internationally, selected from all design disciplines. In addition, 2008 was the launch of one of the most successful, and critically acclaimed high street collaborations of the year – Osman Yousefzada’s Little Black Dress collection for Mango, which was sold in over 203 stores, and in 35 countries worldwide. 2009 saw the renowned authority on haute couture and vintage fashion, Didier Ludot, showcasing Osman’s work in the windows of his venerated Palais Royal boutique in Paris. He was shortlisted for the 2011 BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund.

His signature and creations are described as “Simple yet highly intelligent and directional pieces. The clothes are exceptionally precise, well-tailored and finished but are softened with sensuous draping that is inspired by Osman’s interest in ethnicity and the costume of ancient cultures.”

In his collection for next cold season, presented during the 2014 Autumn/Winter London Fashion Week, Osman Yousefzada wanted to evoke “jet-set bohemian”. We found an interesting review at  arabia.style.com
