Omar Mansoor’s Royal Ascot 2017 Collection

Omar Mansoor unveils his annual Royal Ascot collection. The style is a relaxed fit with self-fabric belts.

Colour palette choice ranges from fun vibrant citrus shades to the cool classic ivory.

The more structured ivory dress is made of a ribbed blended fabric to bring texture. Patch pockets allow you to keep your betting slips handy, but don’t use them for anything else as you don’t want them to bulge out and ruin that streamline silhouette. Hemlines on both ivory dresses are the fashionable asymmetrical style.

The second ivory dress is a silky sheen with short feminine lace sleeves. The asymmetric hemline, side belt and deep V neckline give the illusion of diagonal wrap styling. This style will complement any body shape but is especially great for the curvier figure.

These ivory dresses open up the limitless possibilities of hat colours and styles. Team with a black and ivory hat for the chic monochrome look or go wild with hot tropical shades.

Sunny yellow will brighten up any day even if the weather is dull. Omar offers two different styles with his lemon dresses:

Sporty Luxe – knee length with a slight asymmetrical hemline, high round neckline and made from neoprene fabric.

Boho Chic – long flowing midi with V neckline and tie belt.

All dresses in this collection are embroidered with ornate Renaissance Revival style brooches using Swarovski to emulate the most popular gemstones of that era – the emerald and the ruby.

Military inspiration is taken for the zesty lime and tangerine dresses. Tangerine dress is in the style of a fitted shirt dress with shoulder epaulettes.

Lime dress sports a double row of buttons, cinched in waist and full skirt for that Hussar style.

The collection is comfortable, elegant and funky; it takes the minimalist shape and adds a modern geometric ingredient.
