Just like all good things come to an end, so is Fashion Pakistan Week 2012. Day 3 is already over and we are looking at Day 4 in the eye.
So day 3, what can I possibly write about day 3 that would do it some justice? As one by one the designers showcased their collections, people were left gasping for more.
The show was opened with Shamaeel Ansari telling the audience why she has been the number one choice for fashionistas and celebrities for more than 25years. The bold hues, with such intricate detailing made her showcasing a very tough act to follow!
Bani D took the reins from Shamaeel, and contrary to what most thought, they managed to put up a spectacular show. The idea behind their collection was hip traditionalism, something bound to be a huge success with Pakistani youth and seniors alike. The jewellery used to accessorize the dresses was provided by Artel by Bina Ali. I simply loved the head accessorizes which gave the outfit a very traditional yet funky look. Highpoint for Bani D? Sani Saeed walked the ramp completely rocking one of their outfits.
Famous for his close attention to detail, Ahmed Bham presented his collection next. And what better way to start the showcasing, than getting another designer to walk down the ramp for you? Ahmed Bham did just that. Out came Nomi Ansari wearing Bham’s very own design making the crowd go wild. Well known for his menswear, Bham’s designs were all about men embracing their feminine side. Bright orange and floral prints were flaunted by male models. If guys really look that good wearing such prints, I promise not to judge them anymore.
Monsoon/Accessorize came up next. Their designs gave off a very cool, breezy impression. And since their theme was beach inspire, it was all too well. Their outfits ranged from causal separates to glamorous maxi dresses. They also showcased their adorable children collection, with the adorable little models strutting around confidently. I totally loved the golden classical music which accompanied her collection.
After a short break, Maheen Khan unveiled her much awaited ‘Gulaboo’ collection. According to her, this collection came out of her ‘love for Pakistan and all things Pakistani’. The truck art inspired collection was bold and trendy and gave people a reason to talk about. Models wearing helmets walked the ramp wearing one gorgeous outfit after another.
Up next was Warda Saleem. Her Thar inspired dresses used bright, vibrant shades with beautiful ethnic prints. The Ghungroo shoes were simply to die for.
And then, Rizwanullah came up. Unveiling his daring and bold outfits, Rizwanullah showcased his glamorous collection. While some people were not very impressed others clearly looked mesmerized. I simply loved his black gown but not really sure how I felt about the man tights.. The question on everyone’s mind however still was why didn’t he show up yesterday?
And last but so not the least Nomi Ansari. The show stopper, the spotlight stealer! Nomi Ansari very sneakily used celebrities to showcase his designs. Maheen Khan first came out wearing his outfit and it just got better from there. Soon huge names like Hina Dilpazeer, Adnan Siddiqi, Nadia Hussain, Ayesha Omar, Maria Wasti and of course Meera came out adorned in a Nomi Ansari outfit. That was definitely a way to bring the night to an end.
Really looking forward to day 4. You too can join us through live streaming. Simply visit https://www.facebook.com/FashionPakistan.Org and join the fun!
