Designer Profile: Adam Saaks
If being scissor-happy is an art, then Adam Saaks is a modern day Picasso, with a sharp edge. Saaks’ wizardry over cutting humble tees to create hot, strategically snipped, figure-hugging outfits has found celebrity fans across the world: from Eva Longoria, Jessica Alba and Justin Timberlake to desi girls Sameera Reddy and beauty queen Hasleen Kaur. The man travels with his 80-odd colourful scissors and his designing ‘process’ is pure performance — with theatrical cuts, instinctive swipes (in tune with heady music) and an ecstatic audience. Bag a seat for one of his ‘couture concerts’ and we’ll compare our sexy slashes to yours!
Signature quote: “Cutting is just a personal thing for me; it’s due to the fact that it’s love, and love travels further than the eye can see.”
