Nabil El Nayal
BFC Scholarship winner and Royal College of Art graduade, El Nayal's debut collection for Harrods is a fusion of romantic chiffons with leather. The gothic palettes, Elizabethan finishes and volume-oriented silhouettes add a sense of high-drama to his creations.
Recognized for her playful combinations of textured tweed, floral patterns and printed silk, creations by this Korean-born designer strongly emanates a feminine touch.
The millinery collection by the Royal College of Art graduate Zara Gorman exudes an otherworldly glamor, complete with high-gloss finishes. Sculpted in leather, wood and Perspex; the collection reflects the designer's interest in exquisite millinery pieces.
Baartmans and Siegel
Completing the Harrods' Launch initiative is the menswear collection by the label, Baartmans and Siegel. From classic trench coats to textured blazers, the collection has been created to suit the sensibilities of the contemporary men.
