The final presentation I saw at London Fashion Week was the Omer Asim SS17 collection. Titled 'Reversed sensory', it was definitely on the editorial side, and to me it seemed more like art installations than anything else.

The models had painted black hands and feet, empathising with the black painted motifs on the clothes.

Omer Asim studied architecture as part of his eventual route to fashion design, and I think you can see this in the clothes, with the strong geometric lines and bold industrial jewellery.

The collection challenged your eyes, forcing you to take time, and process the elegance of the lines and the different black and white pieces, eventually piecing together an interesting and somehow raw collection.
