Ava Hashemi designs ready-to-wear that highlights clean, rich fabrics cut with an artsy hand. In this offering, a tunic dress features geometric door holes across its hem and swinging tassels; a shift dress is constructed with color-blocking panels of various lengths; a top features a peplum accordion pleat; and a skirt is tailored to show the large stitches holding the dove gray, blush pink, and navy blue panels sewn together.

The latter look came across as something of a metaphor for Hashemi’s overarching design proposition, which highlights the fit and form of clothes wrapping the body in a manner that is not seductive, but surprisingly utilitarian. The merging of luxe fabrics with (for the most part) no fuss forms carries a prescient appeal of what some, within the extended industry, would refer to as “functional design.”
