Fashion Pakistan Week Winter/Festive 2018 in a glimpse, It has been a couple days since Fashion Pakistan Week 2018 came to the end yet we are still not over it. As it was already said, FPW 2018 was Festive/Winter themed but what it proceeded with was simply the feast to our eyes. First of all, the designers lineup was extremely overwhelming, and the themes for collections by each designer added more power to it.
FPW Festive 2018: Day 1
Seven designers were lined up for day 1 which included the show opener Tena Durrani, followed by Huma Adnan, Lajwanti, Zainab Chottani, Aamna Aqeel, The Pink Tree Company while the day ended with HSY.
As the theme of the event suggests, it was all about setting festive trends for the upcoming season. Day 1 began with Tena Durrani’s collection Rara Avis. It seemed to be the most beautifully crafted collection of the day. The beautifully sparkling couture, colors creatively put together and the overall look of each design from the collection definitely gave the show an impeccable start.
Huma Adnan’s collection, Tales of Dehradun, was her tribute to her ancestral hometown where she might have never been but certainly has strong connection with. The collection was definitely able to showcase Huma Adnan’s craftsmanship and her presentation of the rich culture of the city.
Even though the show was themed festive, it was expected how everything was going to be by each designers. Bold colours, rich designs, and heavily ornamented attires as the theme suggested, but that was not it with Lajwanti. Lajwanti’s collection Rivaaj was very satisfying to eyes in terms of its soberness. Very soft earthy tones and beautifully crafted pastel blues and pinks gave the collection a very soothing effect
Zainab Chottani’s collection Khwab was as usual aesthetically pleasing. When it comes to the designs, it looked like Zainab Chottani is always up to what she already does as the crows likes it. This might be stopping her from exploring her more innovative ideas but she sure knows how to play safe. Overall, the collection featured some actually gorgeous ensembles which included beautiful pinks to bold blacks. The show had a little misfortune when Mehreen Syed stumbled on the ramp but the way she carried herself back was worth appreciating. And of course, she looked absolutely impeccable in the stunning black and silver attire.
