Fully immersed in Mazhar’s vision from show-start to party-end, SS15 showcased another riotous eruption of the designer’s trademark originality
This season Nasir Mazhar sent twenty-one bodacious power-punching looks down the runway at LC:M and as ever it was all all-branded autobiographical emblazoned montage of luxury urbanity, speaking the visual language symptomatic to the UK Garage scene.
Decked out in strap clad jackets with lighter slots, three quarter basket shorts, peaked Bully Cap’s equipped with pencil holders, cobalt blue and bronze metallic jacquards, re-invented pinstripe shirts with Nasir Mazhar headed pockets and branded technical body armour in various other guises, this seasons fashion fighters bombarded their way down the catwalk showcasing another riotous eruption of the designer’s trademark absurdist originality.
Another measured step in the development of the core Nasir Mazhar uniform, SS15 saw his vision further solidified. Soundtracked by grime frontman Skepta, the mix was created in collaboration with Red Bull Catwalk Studios as part of their continued work bringing together bright young emerging talent from both the fashion and music spheres, which we talked to Nasir about last week.
However, the fiasco did not cease après-catwalk. Taking to Metropolis Strip Club, Bethnal Green, the after-party saw jaw-dropping pole dancers perform scantily-clad in Nasir Mazhar attire, whilst Skepta took to the stage, cementing the Metropolis dance floor as one of the most hallowed of L:CM.
Fully immersed in Mazhar’s vision from show-start to party-end, it’s safe to say he is ardently passionate about what he creates.
