Known for his high-impact pieces with intricate details and folds, Senegalese couturier Omar Salam’s Sukenia clothing line is a Naomi Campell favorite. Salam’s presentation at ESSENCE Fashion House NYC wowed attendees on Sept. 5th as he sent sleek detailed looks down the runway.

From the precision in the models’ walks to the bold feathers and avant-garde ruffles that lead his design aesthetic, Salam’s approach to fashion lies within his preciseness and appreciation for the modern woman. Each model’s look hugged their curves in form-fitting attire with bold hues from neon green to bright red, which floated down the runway in sheer perfection. While some pieces featured daring, see-through mesh panels, Sukenia’s overall aesthetic remains ladylike and glamourous.
