SILK ROAD: Osman Yousefzada is the latest designer to create a one-off look for the American Express concierge assistants working at London Fashion Week. He joins the ranks of Roksanda Ilincic, Jonathan Saunders and Christopher Raeburn in dressing the 17 people enlisted to help visitors navigate Somerset House, the hub of London Fashion Week.
Yousefzada has designed bespoke men’s and women’s, one-seam silk kimono jackets. Each black jacket features a hand-painted bright red and blue print.
“I was drawn to the idea of freedom and adventure,” said Yousefzada of his creations. “Our timeless kimono silhouette frames a hand-painted print, capturing a dive mid-air, against a waterfall and into the waves.”
