Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s Fall Winter 18 collection is inspired by the blending of opposing elements; feminine and masculine, hard and soft, positive and negative. Zadeh explored these themes by the blending of textures, silhouettes and colors as a visual representation of an internal exploration. Oversized masculine suiting in corduroys and plaids paired with feminine corsets and intimates created a harmonic fusion of contrasting ideas with vibrant florescent hues in stark visual contrast with the soft, subdued tones of silk

Patchwork motifs featured heavily in the collection; soft, transparent patchwork sleeves on delicate silk blouses juxtaposed against a hand painted patchwork on the back of a reworked, oversized men’s motorcycle jacket.
