Omar Mansoor’s Royal Ascot 2023 Collection

London based couturier Omar Mansoor has been creating a Royal Ascot collection since 2009 and this year is no exception.

All of the dresses in this capsule collection adhere to the strict dress code of the Royal Enclosure.

A reminder of the dress code for the Royal Enclosure is:

  • Dresses and skirts should fall just above the knee or longer (lace and chiffon fabrics are permitted) 
  • Shoulder straps must have a minimum width of 1 inch / 2.5cm 
  • Jackets and pashminas may be worn. Tops and dresses beneath must still comply 
  • Trouser suits are welcome and should be of matching material and colour 
  • Jumpsuits should fall below the knee and comply with the shoulder strap requirements 
  • Hats must be worn. However, a headpiece or hatinator with a minimum base diameter of 4 inches / 10cm is acceptable. 

The above dress has been teamed with the Galina Ulanova hat by milliner Elena Shvab.

Styles include the classic cowl neck, a smooth A-line skirt and elegant 3/4 length sleeves in a colour palette of ivory and subtle lilac.

Fabric used for this dress style is the softly draped crimped crepe – lightweight with a gauze-like  texture. 

For those of you who prefer a bolder colour, Omar has also added shades of blue in to his colour palette. 

Above left the kimono style dress in shiny satin charmeuse and cheerful sky blue hue creates a playful and carefree look.

For a simple sophisticated look, above right is the stylish cowl neck maxi dress in dull silk.  The understated elegance of dull silk teamed with a bold sapphire colour ensures this outfit gets noticed.

Last but not least is the faux wrap dress in ivory with cuffed sleeves.
