Osman Evening Dresses
Rather than following in the steps of his contemporaries, Osman Yousefzada instead focused on offering a “total wardrobe”. That led to a foray in outerwear, versatile knits and easy, yet refined eveningwear. This dress, in all of its feather light seersucker composition, references the designer’s adherence to the day to evening schedule of a modern woman. Laddered down the sleeves, a handkerchief hem plays with proportion.

Fresh from the SS17 runway, this black satin Elizabeth gown showcases Osman's affinity for elegant draping. It is made in the UK to a gathered one-shoulder silhouette and finished with a ruffled side panel that accents the nipped-in waist. Chandelier earrings and strappy stiletto sandals will complete a stunning evening look.
Although Osman is revered for his scalpel-sharp silhouettes, this red crepe-back satin Thalia dress is a sublime example of the designer's draping ability. It's shaped with a one-shoulder asymmetric neckline and a coordinating overlay panel across the bodice, and is finished with an equally fluid hem that is bound to flutter with every step. Pin-thin heels will make the perfect evening pairing.
The box-pleated cape on this charcoal-grey Michelle dress is a subtle nod to Osman's architectural eye. It's crafted with a boat neck and falls to a thigh-length hem, and is detailed with metallic-silver floral and bug brocade embroidery – a key pattern in the SS17 show. Add stilettos to complete a chic evening look.
Osman's midnight-blue stretch-crepe Eloise gown is designed with special occasions in mind. The shoulder-baring, second-skin silhouette is trimmed with an oversized structured ruffle that draws attention to the décolleté, and leads into a slender pencil skirt with figure-contouring seams. Highlight the thigh-high slit with stiletto pumps.
Muted hues appear across a number of looks in Osman's Pre-AW17 collection, like the ice-blue satin of this Mariam gown. It's crafted in the brand's English atelier with an asymmetric neckline that falls into a cape-effect draped panel at the back. Style it with pin-thin heels to lend the fluid hem an enhanced sense of movement.
Osman's navy Clover gown is an especially elegant strapless style from the SS17 runway. It's crafted in the UK from lustrous satin and detailed with a flattering pleated overlay and a floor-sweeping dipped hem that moves beautifully with every step. Wear yours with statement earrings and stiletto heels for the most sophisticated approach to formal occasions.
Osman took a considered approach to romance for SS17, as shown by this floral-embroidered black tulle Omara dress. Beautifully tailored in the UK with long sleeves and a lightly pleated skirt, it's an elegant evening choice that reveals just the right amount of skin at the open back. Complete the look with black stilettos.
Exclusive to Symphony, Osman's Florence Layered Dress is a flattering option for evening occasions. Cut for a fluid silhouette, this flawless style features a flouncy layered hemline that moves beautifully with each step and wide short sleeves for a modern approach. Wear with statement making earrings and high heels for the most elegant look. Styled with: Valentino Rockstud Open Strap Heels, Alexander McQueen Creole Hoop Earrings.
