So I may be a teensy bit little late with my review. But well things have been crazy. Case in point, day 2 of Fashion Pakistan Week.
Blogging is fast becoming a very rewarding interest. With events like fashion week reserving front row seats with great view for social media, what else can it be. Having designers like Sanum Chaudry, Arsalan and Yaseer and Zaheer Abbas showcasing their latest collection, it sure for a sight for sore eyes.
Sanum Chaudri kept the fun in funky alive with her bright, attractive designs. Taking inspiration from ‘Shibori’, a Japanese resist-dye technique, the collection called ‘Kage’ was classic Sanum Chaudhri.
Arsalan and Yahser with their leather clad male models certainly helped the atmosphere, especially for people (read women) like me. Their collection labelled Urban Slick revolved around the idea of leather being a very important part of a man’s wardrobe. We sure love our men in leather.
Showcasing quite a collection of dresses, cardigans and jeans, Debenhams enlightened us with the must haves of fall 2012.
Making a comeback with their fall collection sisters Aneeka and Salma Cheema’s Baani D displayed their ‘Desi Boho line. A mixture of western style with a hint of tradition the collection was fresh. Sania Saeed once more embracing their outfit to walk down the ramp certainly helped matters.
Zaheer Abbas took us back to the British era with white evening gowns accompanied by very chic hats. Feasting on the idea ‘white is always right’ the collection titled ‘Virgin with net and jute threads, certainly had the oomph factor surrounding it. Very Jane Austeny.
New comer Aamir Baig had some serious competition to beat. His ‘Black O Block’ collection featured block printing, dating back to the Indus Valley civilization.
Adnan Pardesi collection Axiomatic took the art of ‘ralli’ making and created fresh a modern look. Using hand crafted techniques like weaving etc, a wide array of colors found their way into his designs.
All in all Fashion Week Pakistan day 2 was a great day for fashion, without question. Enjoy the pictures.
