Designer Tahir Sultan graduated in fashion knitwear from Central Saint Martins in 2007. After being recommended by the haute couture at Dior, Tahir launched his own label. And it’s a good job that he did- his contemporary womenswear line is a mixture of avant-garde dresses and sharp tailoring, embodying the feel of the 1940s and 50s with a modern twist.
Tahir’s SS14 collection picks up where last season left off with an emphasis on old world charm and new age chic. The embroideries are fused with vivid colours and avant-garde draping helps create a vibrant and playful collection. Modern day silhouettes are combined with old school romanticism, a twist of tribalism and a large dose of glamour.
The collection includes everything from embroidered suits to cocktail dresses with quirky cuts, eye-catching prints and flashes of neon. Rich shimmering metallics, skirts with fishtail detailing, towering glittery courts and bright punchy lips completed the playful looks.
Not forgetting that the Tahir woman is also powerful, suit-wearing and effeminate as shown by the super chic tailored separates with spurred embellishments.
Opulent, beautiful detailing and an incredible colour palette- the final show of day 2 at London Fashion Week did not disappoint.
