Twisted Oliver Collection.. Reem Alasadi

Last week I was speaking with a friend who has an interesting view of high end fashion. To her, there seemed to be a divide between the more serviceable brands that could be worn everyday (Gucci, Prada etc.) and the brands that chase more artistic designs. If we were to place Reem Alasadi into one of these categories, it would be the latter.

Born in Iraq and raised in London, Alasadi developed her keen eye for fashion at an early age. At 16 she worked in a fashion house, building her skills until she herself went solo. The result of her upbringing and time spent under the tutelage of senior designers have led to Alasadi growing into one of the more creative and courageous people in the fashion industry.  It comes as no surprise that her work is a huge hit in Japan, where the fashion market could be classified as being a little more ‘out there.’

Above is a featured garment from the Twisted Oliver collection. Alasadi is on the verge of introducing her online store. My presumption is that this will become a great hub for all of Reem’s accessories to be viewed in isolation. Alasadi’s designs seem like a mosaic, when the pieces are combined the true beauty of the collection can be seen, but it will be a good opportunity for all of the individual pieces to shine in the e-store.

Be guided by the guild.
