Omar Mansoor returns with his 10th collection, named ‘Imperial Romance’ at LFW featuring evening wear, depicting the context of Russian Revolution. The Revolution of 1917 made the Russian fashion adjust to the new Communist norms, which condemned everything “bourgeois” and extraordinary.
The collection is constructed with hues of white and ivory depicting the peace post-revolution. The pre-revolution Tsarist Autocracy is shown with Faberge imperial eggs inspired motifs while the rise of revolution is communicated with military insignia and caps, the end of revolution peace is shown with white and gold silk flowers.
The designer also posted the following image on social media:
