Designer: Shane Newton
SADAR opens the door to a world of garments that celebrate an avant-garde aesthetic. Attention is given to drape, form and tailoring and is supported with the selection of natural fabrics including Australian wool, bamboo, silk, cotton and linen.A key ideal of Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi can be defined as beauty that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete in an object. Japanese design influence is apparent in ZSADAR͛s support of imperfection by skewing or exposing seams, using asymmetric proportions and distressing fabrics.With a strong artistic, rather than commercial, approach to fashion design, ZSADAR draws inspiration from the ideas of androgyny, anarchy, the surreal, experimentation and subversion.
Designer, Shane Newton is forever thankful for receiving the opportunity to officially launch ZSADAR at STYLEAID: Opulent in 2011.
