The silhouette is deceptively simple, ballooned, pleated blouses worn under highwaisted skirts, with pockets and draping, adding a new dimension to the silhouette. 1950’s vintage cuts are given a twist with knots, folds and drapes.
In Jafari's collection shading is essential to the colour palette, turquoise turns to bright green to dark green as they progress across the silhouette. Flashes of bright turquoise and intense yellow contrast against a soft evaporating background. Play is ever present in this collection; an embroidered Christian Louboutin dangles from a branch on the neckline of a 1950's dress and embroidered ladybirds form the hemline of another. The unexpected suddenly becomes the norm to form one meditative state of beauty.
