6 eye-catching looks that commanded the catwalk

Shamaeel Ansari’s lust-worthy ensemble

The top was a luxuriant blend of chiffon, embroidery and frills. The polished floral printed pants gently tapered at the ankle while the trail and sleeves billowed around Atiya Khan, the model. It was all magnificent – not the most practical, but surely the kind of indulgence that could turn a humdrum day into an occasion.

Zaheer Abbas goes back to basics

Fashion shows are meant to excite and stimulate our imagination with complex and extravagant creations, but the essence of fashion is to give customers clothes they can easily wear.  The collection was somewhat bland, on the whole. This particular shirt dress with pockets and a high-low hem, however, seemed comfortable and fun to wear.

Zainab Chottani dissects denim

Zainab Chottani channeled the 1980s with acid washed denim and big shoulders. The complete look turned out to be sleek, modern and sporty.

Generation makes normal look glamorous

The collection offered simple but striking variations of shalwars, tunics and jackets. A printed tunic with a hint of shine paired with sheer lowers makes the perfect light and breezy summer outfit. It doesn’t just look good, it’s also super comfortable.

Wardha Saleem wants everyone to brighten up

The models stalked out with gorgeous hand-painted bags. The asymmetrical embroidered tunic created elegant and graceful silhouette, and contrasted with the bright, paint-splattered pants.

Sonya Battla gets ethereal

Fascinating, intricately constructed garments that spiral around the body raise questions about human nature and force us to change the way we see culture.
