Republic Womenswear has become a name synonymous with its dazzling ensembles. Sana Zehra sits down with beautiful Sana Omar, the designer of Republic Womenswear for a one to one
What is the biggest fashion mistake women make?
I believe wearing extremely fitted clothes and heels all the time add no benefit to a womanâ€™s style. Going for a relaxed glam chic look can never go out of style.
What is your design aesthetic?
I would say my design aesthetic is sophisticated and yet it accentuates oneâ€™s individuality. Focusing on intricate details and creating experimental silhouettes through couture garments has been our forte.
How would you describe your brand?
Republic Womenswear is for those who have an eye for detail and finesse. As a brand we take pride in dressing the modern independent women of today with effortless yet exquisite style. Our aesthetic is a perfect blend of inventiveness and impeccable artistry, each garment at Republic Womenswear is a testament of our strong craftsmanship with flawless detailing and workmanship.
What are the must-haves a woman must have in her closet at all times?
Skinny jeans not only go with everything, but they flatter almost every body type. A classic dark wash pair is essential for your wardrobe as it can be worn a million ways and is super easy to dress up and still look polished. Having a classic bag can for sure make you feel sassy.
Favourite all time designer?
Karl Lagerfeld is my favourite. Love how his signature aesthetic combines timeless classics with a modern, rock-chic edge
If one is really stuck and doesnâ€™t know what to wear, what would you suggest?
Go with casual-wear and add some glamour with statement shoes or accessories. Nothing like a fuss free effortless luxe look.
What helps you get in the zone when you are designing?
Historic monuments when traveling and street style get me in the designing zone. It uplifts my creativity. Such inspirations take you into a zone where you feel like a design genius.
Both trendy and timeless, Zara is the perfect store for literally everybody we know. The brand is two steps ahead of everyone and is changing the face of what we expect from high street fashion.
If youâ€™d choose to give any celebrity a makeover who would it be and why?
Maya Ali! She is beautiful but plays it too safe with her sartorial choices. I would love to jazz up her style.
Favourite place to shop and why?
Well, youâ€™re in for a real treat when it comes to shopping in London. Itâ€™s not only a top city for visiting but a top one for shopping with its numerous shopping streets and I love how British are so particular with dressing up. I always feel so charged up while shopping in London.
Item worth splurging on?
There are so many if one has to count.
If Republic Womenswear could have any celebrity spokesmodel who would it be?
Queen Rania I wish! There is no doubt she is one of the most stylish royals in the world.
