Hormazd Narielwalla

Hormazd has developed an appreciation for bespoke tailoring; in particular, the cutters’ all-important brown paper patterns of each customer. This fascination, coupled with the creative interpretation of the patterns, prompted him to produce a limited edition book entitled Dead Man’s Patterns. This artistic design story was inspired by a set of bespoke patterns belonging to a deceased customer. The concept was to recreate the patterns as objects of art, using the unique theme, which has become his trademark. He has since become the first recipient of the highly sought after International Rector Scholarship from the University of Arts, London.
In his quest for artistic creativity, he has foraged for forms in historic tailoring archives and through visuals shows previously untold stories. He uses photography, his own sketches and digital composition collages to create sets of playful artworks. See Hormazd's website for more information and new projects.
