The scene is prepared with an intriguing query that hangs in the atmosphere: "Is it feasible to don these trousers, which flaunt exaggerated and extroverted forms?" The daring ethos of HARRI's expansive, sculptural silhouette encourages you to venture beyond customary boundaries.

London morphs into a canvas where voluptuous silhouettes gain novel existence via diverse textures and fibres. The unique sensory style that is quintessentially Harri breathes an enchanting allure into each creation. Teaming up with KK Obi, who founded Boy Brother Friend, the assemblage embraces a multifaceted character. "Life is a Cabaret" evolves into an ethos as fashion, performance artistry and immersive storytelling interweave seamlessly. Indulgence in exaggeration, creativity unfettered by constraints, and uninhibited expression steal the limelight in this grand spectacle.
As Sarathy Korwar's "Utopia Is A Colonial Project" pulsates with an infectious beat, the collection unfurls itself in new and exciting ways. The symbiotic fusion of music and fashion heightens the quintessence of each piece, with colour morphing into a fresh dialect, and collaboration infusing vitality into every seam.
