Malaysian fashion designer Syomirizwa Gupta took another trip to Brunei last week, 1st April 2017, to showcase his latest designs from his Eid Luxe 2017 collection, featuring a 13 piece collection reminiscent of regal Persian princes and princesses of a bygone time.
Syomir’s inspiration stems from the Empress of Iran, Farah Pahlavi, a social media icon with impeccable taste in fashion. His collection, aptly named “From Persia with Love”, tells stories of a forgotten time, brought to life with vibrant designs. Made in a variety of fabrics and textures to reflect diverse personas, his designs offer a range of brocades, custom prints, silks, jewel tones, organza and tweed.
With a big fan base in Brunei, Syomir’s visit was received with much anticipation. The unveiling of his latest collection was held at a private event in the Armada Rimba estate, attended by esteemed guests, customers and fans.
