The Desert Wanderer, a designer collection inspired by desert cultures of the middle east
This collection is an exploration of desert cultures in the MIddle East to present a new look at tailoring for a man's wardrobe. All the garments were designed, patterned, sewn, and dyed by me. Each garment is dip-dyed to create a transition of color similar to the colors of the desert sky. One of the main fashion designers I drew inspiration from for this collection was Damir Doma. Other influences on the collection were the study of the draping techniques of Madame Gres and the clothing of greeek statues.
