Black PR was very excited to announce that Barrus showcased their AW24 Legend Reborn collection at Fashion Scout.

The Collection was a ballad composed by the designer, Neslisah Yilmaz, to pay homage to the lands where it all started. The Sumerian civilization of Mesopotamia had started developing advanced techniques in the art of weaving during the third millennium BCE.

Bas-reliefs of the Sumerian civilization showed figures wearing skirts and dresses composed of woven cloth and tufted fabrics. The wrapped and draped clothes had influenced the dress of Greeks and Egyptians. Inspired by the chic Sumerian royalty, the designer used the materials and top-level workmanship of the same lands to create Legend Reborn – Sumerian royalty on the catwalk of London Fashion Week.

As a line of the ballad, the recycled fabrics used in the collection signified the rebirth of thousands of PET bottles collected from the ocean. The designer hoped that the sustainability efforts would enable many generations to enjoy legends reborn through many millennia.
