Seaweed Couture for London Fashion Week

September 07th 2012

Award-winning, Pan-Asian restaurant creates a sushi dress as part of London Fashion Week (14-18 September).

George Nemsadze, a graduate of Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, used fifty sheets of vivid green pressed seaweed and silk organza in his shift dress creation, incorporating geometric patterning and sheer panelling.

Nemsadze favours symmetrical bold patterning in his designs and honed his skills during a student placement at Alexander McQueen before working at TATA-NAKA and David Koma, who will both be exhibiting their collections at September’s London Fashion Week.

“The beautiful sheen and colour of the nori is very Spring/Summer 2013. We saw earth and jewel tones in Spring/Summer 2012 collections which rolled on through autumn and winter and into Spring/Summer 2013 in several collections,” says George Nemsadze.

The dress will be on display in the lobby of Chino Latino, found within Park Plaza Riverbank, throughout London Fashion Week.
