Syed Shahid

Experimental textiles, sculptural, dark, surreal, mixing traditional crafts with contemporary construction. Syed draws much of his fashion inspiration from life experiences growing up in Pakistan, a country of risks, tensions and uncertainties. An interest in art and the quality of my biological illustrations he said saved him from training to become a doctor and at Pakistan’s National College of Art in Lahore as he chose to learn about textiles instead. Exposed to international views of fashion with an interest in adding a native flavour has shaped his ambition to design clothing.
Here in the UK his first MA collection showcased experimentation encompassing several diverse styles and materials, with an embroidered humanist message evolving through each piece. One piece stood out – recaptured as art by a renowned fashion photographer Katrina jebb for FT UK and awarded an accolade by Bild as ‘the weirdest garment in Berlin Fashion Week’. His second collection added sparkle to a theme taken from his first. Some painstaking work getting structure and presentation right – again more art than everyday wear, the value of good tailoring being vital.
