The Best of Fashion Pakistan Week 2015

Plenty of bridal wear-inspo here

1. Sharp Edges

Sania Maskatiya’s collection was the simplest and arguably the strongest of the week. The Ori collection was inspired by the Japanese art of folding paper. The design house used fabric manipulation techniques to create paper like textures on structured silhouettes.

2. Silver Lining

Silver was the hottest colour on the Karachi ramp this season. Almost every major designer employed it. Our favourites? An electric Nida Azwer sequinned tunic, paired with gold culottes, a crochet choli and skirt by Delphi, a long dress and pants number with delicate scalloped embroidery by designer Faraz Mannan, and a Zaheer Abbas bridal ensemble with purple accents.

Zeb Bangash – one half of Zeb and Haniya – and her silvery vocals during Saleem’s colourful show left the audience spellbound.
