Looks We Loved From Fashion Pakistan Week

Looks We Loved From Fashion Pakistan Week
Fashion Pakistan Week (FPW) Winter Festive drew to a close on Tuesday. From ace designers to celebrity showstoppers galore, some fashion heavyweights took designing to a whole different level, while others picked up on season-specific trends that could easily be translated to everyday wear. From ghagras to sheer tops, fur and fringes, we saw an evolution of several trends that fashionistas are already donning. And, in the spirit of creating outstanding designs, here are the few truly scintillating moments, hot off the run way!

Amir Adnan:

The show opened with Amir Adnan's 'The Way Forward' collection. The showcase held one transfixed; from coats with busy patterns to classic coloured jackets and traditional ensembles for those who like to keep it traditional - the collection had something for every man no matter the occasion. The refreshing menswear collection kept the embroidery minimal, traversing a palette that varied from black and white to wintry hues of dark brown.

From tuxedos to sherwanis, the stylish and signature cuts were particular highs and of course the actor Feroze Khan, celebrity showstopper for the show never looked sharper!

Mona Imran:

Mona Imran's debut collection at the FPW titled 'Gold Rush' remained true to its name - the catwalk was glided in gold. Other than some heavy duty outfits other festive wear included saris, lehngas, blouses with cut-out backs and cut-off sleeves, gharara pants, kaftans and cut-worked long shirts embellished in gold.

Actress Sajal Ali as showstopper looked extremely pretty. She only recently made it to headlines with Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai. She did as much for the fashion week line up.

Shehla Chatoor:

When it comes to bridals, Shehla Chatoor takes the show. With her 'Tresor' collection, staying true to her signature design, Shehla displayed a line featuring western wear and heavy bridals - both of which were a visual treat. Her catwalk brides came resplendent in sparkly layered lehngas and dupattas sometimes matching the jacket and other times as a contrast of rich, dreamy velvet shawls lined with jamawar.

Incorporating intricate details and different textures such as velvet, fur and lace to the bridal collection, Shehla sure took it a notch further this time. The evening formals were just as glamorous with shirts cut out like kaftans and belted at the waist, ball gowns, trails, capes, jackets and peplums amongst the many.

Fouzia Aman donned a peplum jacket paired with pants and a lehnga which could be detached - serving as a multipurpose outfit, it was one of our personal favourites. Her contemporary and western collection stays within a classic, earthy palette and her take on the velvet lehnga was surely one of the best moments witnessed on Day Two.

Huma Adnan:

Huma Adnan showcased collections for her high-street label FnkAsia. With 'Midnight Garden' she introduced a classic case of modern day wedding wear. With pretty thread embroideries, off-shoulder shirts and the now-trending gharara pants her collection surely stood out. As the show progressed, the showcase transitioned into western wear with a touch of gold embroidery on jumpsuits and pantsuits - keeping it chic yet in line with the usual glam that bridal wear offers. Her rich, deep palette of deep purples and maroons were in line with the festivities that winter brings.

Nida Azwer:

The show opened with the talented Ali Sethi's live performance on stage, setting the tone right for the 'Alankara' collection. Taking inspiration from geometric shapes and textured surfaces interspersed with detailed floral patterns and the ateliers signature nature inspired motifs, incorporating compositions worked in zardozi and resham. There are always designs in Nida Azwer's collection that are best sellers and surely this was the case here too.

Nida put her best sartorial foot forward by showcasing experimental pieces such as intricately worked trench coats, shorter structured jackets, ghararas and intricately hand crafted shawls and chaddars. Nida Azwer delivered umpteen hits; her outfits paired with Sherezad's stunning jewelry surely made it the strongest collection of the day – one that we wish would never end.

The beautiful Ayesha Omer looked super pretty in one of our favourite ensembles by the talented designer.

Saira Rizwan:

Saira Rizwan's 'Banaras' flowed in darker shades of red, coral, plum and blue. Reminisce of the Mughal era, the collection blended together architectural motifs with the brand's signature traditional floral patterns while making use of embellishments like tilla embroidery, screen prints and velvet as the key elements.

Saira Rizwan's show opener held promise: actress Neelum Munir wore a red ensemble embellished in gold and paired with beautiful jewelry.

Republic Womenswear:

A show by Republic Womenswear is bound to showcase a bit of glamour and characteristic opulence on the catwalk. 'Mon Tresor' collection meaning My Treasure unveiled a story of the Republic Woman and the treasure she hides within her heart. Her beauty and sensuality reflects through the garment she drapes herself in. This collection brought forth a new era woman who is individualistic, versatile and talented yet possesses feminine qualities that of a soft and gentle heart.

The designer has a penchant for details and as she merged texture with embroidery and garment construction, she invented silhouettes that were confident, unique and inspired by the fashion houses of the late '90s.

Mawra Hocane walked out in the final outfit. Trailing out in between were numerous odes to the Orient. Staying true to classic couture, the colour palette varied between hues of silver and pastel colours giving it a regal yet aesthetically pleasing touch.
