What People Are Saying
A native of Northeast D.C., Aswad Abasi began sketching his designs in 2005 for his own personal
reasons. His family encouraged him to continue as they saw a unique and captivating idea. He later went into business with his younger brother. As a designer for his clothing line, Abasi Couture, he goes by the name Aswad Abasi, which is a combination of his and his brother’s names.
The year 2003 was a devastating year; as fate would have it, Abasi was hit with the loss of his brother. But in realizing the vision he and his brother set forth, Abasi picked up the pieces and began to share his love and passion all over again.
Along with a new start, new ideas for Abasi came into creative control with a logo that portrayed wings, which symbolized taking flight in memory of his brother. Abasi Couture is a label that sets the trends for high end couture, with a hint of sporty style. He aims for a tailored, custom look, to give his clothing the impression that the clothing was specifically made for the customer. Abasi’s website displays his designs, incliding his latest line showcased at his most recent show, Phoenix Rising, held in D.C. on june 27, 2008. The line is a celebration of movement, fluidity and the pure essence of the creative process – reburth and renewal, and select designs can now be purchased at www.nyfashionconnect.com. Abasi continues to take the fashion world by storm, with a women’s shoe line currently in the works as well as a men’s line and his fashion magazine on the way.
Ultimately, Abasi wants his clothing designs to be world-renowned with everyone looking to Abasi Couture as a house of fashion. As a leader with a vision for the future, Aswad plans to change and expand the world of fashion with his designs, inside lies the fabric of a true man where fashion is couture straight from the runway. To Aswad Abasi, fabrics are not simply the basics of clothing; they are his passion and the foundation for his fashion designing dream. His commitment to remain true to his one-of-a-kind vision will afford him much success in an industry known for its fickleness.
