Damir Doma is a parisian fashion brand founded in 2006 by the designer Damir Doma and Paper Rain. The Croatian-born designer grew up surrounded by toiles in his mother’s atelier in Germany and later studied fashion in Munich and Berlin, where he graduated in 2004. After gaining experience in the ateliers of Antwerp designers Raf Simons and Dirk Schönberger, he relocated to Paris to join Paper Rain in 2007. He launched the first menswear collection in 2007, and three years later showed the first women’s prét-à-porter collection. The designer’s work is harmoniously linked by a sense of uniform and an obsessive interplay between shadow and light, with designs that encapsulate a measured study of proportion and a juxtaposition of rough and refined textures. Questioning the modern wardrobe, garments offer multiple expressions of identity – contrasting elements of androgyny with dress codes across cultural and historical spheres.
