Omid Taherkhani

Omids focus as a fashion designer is to create wearable pieces that are outside of time. He aims to create garments that can adorn you for a long time, so much so, that they become a part of you; they become you. In combining his interests in science, psychology and politics, as well as a curiosity in philosophical research based on an idea of the future, a future that is often described as negative, he designs garments that embody the escapism from this negativity of the future. The complexity in his designs, that he achieves through his mathematical and technical way of thinking combined with his singular vision, enable him to create garments and sculptures that could be from thousands of years ago, as well as from a thousand years in the future. He also creates his own textiles to add more personality and individuality in his designs.

By merging real leather with man-made modern tech fabrics, there is an essence of history and otherworldly qualities intertwined. The idea of escapism becomes visible in Omids designs by combining the fabrics and textiles to create shapes that force the body to take a certain form, whilst at the same time the precision and detail with every zip and fastening enables you to free yourself and feel unrestricted. Using technological machines such as laser cutters allows Omid to develop and create geometric shapes for a structured and rational design
