Republic by Omar Farooq

Omar Farooq, creative director and founder of Republic, has been entangled in a love affair with fashion since 1994. His first walk down Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore’, one of the most fashionable streets in the world carrying major global fashion houses such as Dior Homme, Dolce’ & Gabbana, Gianfranco ferre, Gianni Versace, Gucci, Comme des Garçons and YSL, sparked in him the seeds of curiosity in designer wear, leading to his predilection towards fashion design.
