PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week passed by like a ghost on skates. The group showcases were too High Street to be on the ramp while the solo shows boasted big names minus the creations that were supposed to accompany them. But all’s not lost because we did manage to get hold of 10 looks we would love to sport.
Sania Maskatiya was probably the only one who experimented with an edgy silhouette. There were no capes draped on flow-ey pants, instead what caught our eye was this oversized boxy top cinched at the hem.
Some may consider this too unconventional but runway is not the place where you play safe.
Misha Lakhani, however, did exactly that but her use of gota work on breathable fabrics had us nodding our heads in approval.
It seems Ali Xeeshan decided to save his theatricals for the next fashion week and presented us a relatively understated collection. But we don’t mind AT ALL. In fact, we’re happy that his designs might finally permeate to the streets.
This straight-cut short dress in black (and white) needs to be in your lives. NOW. You can wear it as it is, with a shalwar, peplum pants or gharara pants; the opportunities are endless!
Meanwhile, Khaadi Khaas stuck to their signature look: embellished lowers paired with simple shirts or vice versa. This dress had everything going for it; from its golden belt, flared sleeves to the shape of the kurti. We just wish the pants were a bit structured.
All things girly is how we’ll describe Saira Rizwan’s collection. The palette was predominantly white, embroidery minimal, and silhouettes flattering. This ensemble here has all the elements that we’d love to sport this Summer.
Sapphire is arguably the most popular high street brand with women attacking its racks as soon as a new collection is released. This dress could very well be your companion on your next night out.
Who thought ruffles could have a slimming effect? Apparently Sana Safinaz did, and the brand’s design team pulled it off with a flourish.
Ethnic By Outfitters decided to give sporty-chic a go and we’re mighty impressed. That cape is a multi-purpose one; wear it over a tee for an out-and-about look and a thigh-length dress for a more feminine one.
Generation is our go-to retail brand and two of their ensembles have stuck with us so let’s share those with you. The patch work kameez and multi-layered pants are going to be our wardrobe staple this season.
And their organza pants are scoring high on our style-o-meter.
