With names like Sonya Battla and Warda Saleem in the running, Fashion Pakistan Week’s day 1 was enveloped with expectations.
Sonya Battla’s collection reinforced the answer to, why black is a fashionista’s best friend. Other designers tried to brighten up the room with their bold choices. Some hit the spot, others fell a little short.
Zahid Khan’s Kuki Concepts lived up to its name, being a little kooki and all. The colors were bold and vibrant; however there was just too much going on for some of the dresses.
Ayesha Hassan’s quirky designs, intricate embroidery and gota kaam by Nargis Hafeez, the gold palette by Maimoona H all had a remarkable impression.
Deepak and Fahad with the men’s collection provided the much needed eye candy to my sore eyes. Their jackets were trendy, the women’s wear was chic.
The best collection of the night without doubt went to Warda Saleem. After impressing everyone with her first showcasing during Fashion Pakistan Week in April, she once more stole our hearts with her bold and funky outfits. I particularly loved the shoes that had been altered to match the colorful dresses.
Ishtiaq Afzal Khan’s collection included browns, greens with just a little touch of pink. For the most part he managed to baffle everyone with his designs. However once we had seen a few we were able to better digest what he offered. Can’t wait for day 2.
Here’s is what you can expect to see:
