Said Mahrouf: SS 17 – Fashion Forward

Said Mahrouf: SS 17 – Fashion Forward

A simple, asymmetric collection from Said Mahrouf revealed the designer’s ability to focus on high-quality fabrics and tailoring for a solid collection. Playing with block colors and stripes, Said’s pieces were understated yet feminine.

With both evening dresses and daywear, the collection allowed for playful twists by using simple fabrics but altering the classic structure of pieces for layered looks.

The base of this collection lays within the idea of using a broad strip set and turning it into panels draped around the body in order to create a new dimension of shapes. Said Mahrouf said: “My mission was to redefine rectangular, vertical and horizontal forms by approaching these lines with an out of the box perception.”
