British born Osman Yousefzada began making clothes from a young age. His mother ran a couture dress making business in Birmingham, where Osman cemented his love for cloth and its workmanship. He went on to study Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins before launching his own label in September 2005. 2008, saw the launch of one of the most successful, and critically acclaimed high street collaborations of the year - Osman Yousefzada's Little Black Dress collection for Mango, which was sold in over 203 stores, and in 35 countries worldwide. His collections consist of simple yet highly intelligent and directional pieces. The clothes are exceptionally precise, well-tailored and finished but are softened with sensuous draping that is inspired by Osman's interest in ethnicity and the costume of ancient cultures.
