Collection – UNITY SSy2k18

“Man is an organic unity.
The whole universe is a cosmic unity.
Life itself is not divided; Life itself is a unity.
You are not a separate entity; you are not an island.
You are connected; rooted in the ocean of existence, just like a wave.’
RAFA Homme SS/Y2K18 collection takes the title UNITY, aiming to remind humanity that all living organisms on this planet ought to coexist.
That tree over there, the sky above you, the earth, you, and everything; is in a deep unity.
In this collection, RAFA illustrates a futuristic society where all humans are equal and in utter harmony with the universe.
About
Born and raised in Beirut, Rafah Seoud pursued her studies in Fashion Design in the Lebanese American University in collaboration with London College of Fashion and Elie Saab. Throughout her education, she has developed a special interest in menswear, tailoring, and craftsmanship, which has granted her the Prize of Excellency in Craftsmanship in June 2017. As one of the first menswear graduates in the region, her aim is to create an aesthetic that facilitates the transition between menswear and womenswear. In 2018, Rafah got selected by Starch Foundation in which she launches her brand RAFA Homme; a platform that defies societies’ norms, and tackles social and environmental issues through storytelling.
