Designer Daily: Yasmin Bawa

Through deft tailoring, intricate handmade prints and? a key focus on Giacomo Balla?€™s ?€?Futurist Manifesto of Men?€™s Clothing?€™, Yasmin Bawa is seeking to find and create balance in menswear. Her printing techniques are new to the industry; she uses light sensitive emulsions to expose her prints directly onto the fabrics. Yasmin Bawa‘s Autumn 2011 collection entitled “He Shall Be a Peacock” takes the stance that men shouldn’t restrain from color, from new cuts on beautiful patterns. In her Spring 2012 collection, “he didn’t care and neither did she…” she dips a toe in womenswear, taking her prints to more feminine silhouettes, but with a great irreverent sense of humor.
