Ozwald Boateng Spring/Summer 2011By Editor in Fashion on September 27th, 2010 | Please Comment !! »
London Fashion Week may be over, but we’ve got some images for you that we think you’re going to love. Check out the Spring/Summer 2011 collection by British menswear designer/tailor Ozwald Boateng, whose work we’ve had our eyes on for some time now.
Born in Ghana in the late 1960s, Ozwald Boateng, the first tailor to stage a catwalk show in Paris, is credited with revolutionizing the most famous street in the world for men’s tailoring. Boateng, who sees himself as both a tailor and a designer, coined the term bespoke couturier. He rewrote established perceptions of the row by redefining the cut of the traditional suit and fusing those expert cutting skills with colour to enhance the experience for the wearer. This more contemporary approach to menswear design has helped to forge a new appreciation for Savile Row and draw in a younger demographic.
