Nasir Mazhar

Fashion Designer

Nasir Mazhar is a fashion designer living and working in London. Originally trained as a hairstylist at Vidal Sassoon, Mazhar moved away from hairdressing after undertaking an evening class in hat-making. After working on Kylie Minogue’s Showgirls tour, Mazhar worked as a theatrical hatter for two years with Mark Wheeler. He has since worked on productions with Rambert Dance Company, The Royal Opera House, The Globe Theatre, National Theatre and Barbican amongst others.

Mazhar’s work has featured on the cover of Roisin Murphy’s 2007 Overpowered album and was worn by Madonna on the cover of Dazed & Confused magazine in April 2008. Mazhar has collaborated with Nicola Formichetti for AnOther Man, and stylist Thom Murphy and photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby for i-D magazine. He has also created hats for London designers Gareth Pugh and Henry Holland.

In 2008 Mazhar was awarded New Gen sponsorship from Topshop and the British Fashion Council for the first time and has gone on to show at London Collections: Men and London Fashion Week. He was featured in Hywel Davies' book 100 New Fashion Designers, released by Laurence King Publishers, in September 2008.

He created hats for the clubbing scene section from the London 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony, and launched his first full clothing for men and women in his 2013 collection. In 2014, Mazhar partnered with grime artist Skepta on Mazhar's S/S 15 show at London Collections: Men.

In 2019, he opened a shop selling limited-edition fashion pieces, Fantastic Toiles, in Forest Gate, London. He also created costumes for the Newcastle dance company Ballet Lorent.
