Three Fifty Nine SS19


Three Fifty Nine SS19I must confess, peering over the brow of my camera, what first drew my attention on the runway wasn't any particular aspect of the collection itself, but rather the Cindy-Lou Who hairdos perched somewhat comically atop the models' heads. Perhaps it was for practicality, as collar details are easily hidden beneath long flowing hair. Nevertheless, combined with bright eyeshadow and abstract prints, there was an air of extraterrestrial about the Three Fifty Nine collection.

This was the first international show for Marwa Afify's womenswear label, presented at Fashion Scout as part of the Dubai Design & Fashion Council x FAD Dubai showcase, which seeks to support designers from the United Arab Emirates. Inspired by the works of an Egyptian artist, the SS19 collection is mostly neutral in its colour scheme, with the occasional splash of red, blue and yellow, and sparing use of dark blue denim. My favourite piece is the coat pictured above, featuring modernist watercolour and wrap-around belt displaying the brand's motto: "perfection is overrated".
