Emperor 1868
Emperor 1868
Country: UAE
Participation: 2015

Dubai-based label Emperor 1868 was established in 2010 and offers contemporary menswear, sportswear and denim collections. A finalist of the 2014/2015 International Woolmark Prize, the designers, brothers Babak, Haman and Farhan Golkar, believe that through fine cut, high quality and price accessibility, everyone can feel like an emperor. Educated at the London College of Fashion, Central Saint Martins and Chelsea College of Art, respectively, the Golkar brothers find inspiration in architecture and contemporary art, evidenced in the structure of the label’s garments, such as slim-line tailoring, and its subtle use of embellishment.
