Sean Sheila has consistently focused on designing polished and elegant shapes. The black overlap jacket has been revamped to add a touch of edginess, featuring high side slits adorned with zipper embellishments. The label has the ability to transform ordinary and commonplace items-demonstrated by a simple white suit, which after being touched by the hands of Sean Sheila, can be infused with a unique twist, such as a front buckle, elevating its appearance and sophistication.

Maintaining a balance between simplicity and sophistication in every piece, there's always a unique element. The black form-fitting dress, adorned with dangling straps, pleasantly surprises with its subtle peekaboo orange slit, adding a delightful twist to this understated yet eye-catching attire. As mentioned earlier, the "Unmade" collection aims to emphasize the inherent charm of unfinished fabric edges. The final ensemble presented is a black two-piece set featuring white suture details along the edges, with some threads hanging loosely, showcasing the beauty of embracing the creative process.(DIP/alm)
