Notable British-Pakistani fashion designer, Omar Mansoor made Pakistan proud once again after his mesmerizing collection was featured at the famous London Fashion Week recently.

Omar Mansoor showcased his Spring/Summer 2021 capsule collection at the London Fashion Week and made Pakistan proud for a 16th time in as many years. His collection was showcased both physically and digitally, at the Hard Rock Hotel in London, due to the constraints caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Titled Kintsugi, which is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold, the collection delivers the meaning of this age-old practice as accepting and rejoicing in one’s supposed ‘flaws and imperfections.’
Omar Mansoor once said:
"British Pakistanis are ambassadors of Pakistan and an integral part of the close relations between the countries. They are talented and rich in ideas and have contributed greatly to life in the UK. Earlier, there had not been a representative body that could serve to increase contacts among the members of the community, but BPF is doing the needful."
Talking about the fashion week, he said:
"It was really challenging and uncertain that a physical show could take place this season."
"Also, the buying behavior of the customer base has evolved during the pandemic. It has affected how designers have to produce their collections. No annual balls and galas taking place this year so the whole concept of multifunctional clothing was to be followed."
Based on serene shades of ivory and white, the capsule collection represented self-acceptance and self-awareness in two-piece ensembles that are multi-functional. It featured tailored trousers to puffed sleeves and asymmetrical tops that can be mixed and matched to different looks for day time to evening wear.
