Draped and dapper
The festival season happens to coincide with a rainy summer this year, posing an interesting conundrum for the sartorially inclined. To bling out for the occasion, or bow down to the weather? Designers around town are opting for a minimal approach. Less is definitely more this Eid. With that in mind, it’s well worth taking a gander at D K Tusshar’s debut collection in Dhaka. Although Indian by birth, D K Tusshar claims to have a deep love for Bangladesh, as his grandfather hails from here, and his wife is also Bangladeshi. The winner of the Smirnoff International (2000) had a fascination with design since his childhood, having started off by making clothes for his sister, her friends and her dolls on his mother’s sewing machine, before opting to study fashion design. He even had the opportunity to work with Iraqi-born British designer Reem Alasadi in the UK. After coming to Bangladesh, he joined the Shanta Mariam University of Creative Technology.

Tusshar takes us through the pages of heritage, travelling through the ages of menswear in the Sub Continent, subtly telling tales using various draping styles. Hemlines rise and fall, necklines veer off to the side in angrakkha style, and discreet buttons and fastenings appear in unexpected ways to bring each outfit to life.
