The team at Award-Winning, Pan-Asian restaurant Chino Latino, is marking London Fashion Week (14-18 September) with a dress made from nori, the seaweed paper that is a staple in sushi, created by up-and-coming London designer George Nemsadze.The graduate of Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, used fifty sheets of vivid green pressed seaweed and silk organza in his shift dress creation, incorporating geometric patterning and sheer panelling.
“The beautiful sheen and colour of the nori is very Spring/Summer 2013. We saw earth and jewel tones in Spring/Summer 2012 collections which rolled on through autumn and winter and into Spring/Summer 2013 in several collections,” says George Nemsadze.
“Working with the nori, which is traditionally used in sushi, lent itself to a bold, graphical print as the texture of the seaweed paper permitted clean cuts,” he continues.
The dress will be on display in the lobby of Chino Latino, found within Park Plaza Riverbank, throughout London Fashion Week.
