Posted on Updated on

header
It is that time of the year that we look back on the past year to see who made an impact on fashion, who set trends and who aced it in terms of costumes in movies in Bollywood. From fabulously styled to chameleon character looks transforming the actors, this year Bollywood dabbled in both regional and contemporary themes with its costumes within movies. From looking fab to getting down and dirty, the hindi movies explored it all in a range of movies. While there were many like Neerja and Dangal where the costume meshed so well with the character that you hardly notice it (the best thing a costume designer Read the rest of this entry »

For starters, I just fail to understand what will it take for designers to understand that winter festive does not necessarily means clothes for wedding or a bridals to be sent down the runway (you have a bridal fashion week for that). Yes, it is the upcoming ‘wedding season’ and people attending will want clothes but atleast give some worthwhile options… Festive does not have to mean you do the same old work in floral filgree over and over again – There quite a few that missed the ball altogether, others presenting rather meh collections and few managing to hit the right balance between wedding attendees and festive look. The collections that actually made themselves noticeable Read the rest of this entry »

Day 3 – MBFWA 16

Posted on Updated on

The third day brought in quite a bit of color within the fashion week and the vibrant kind we associate with resort. From chic monochromes to girly patterns to some very cool conceptual and organic collections, Day 3 saw quite the variety and range of outfits on the runway…

MANNING CARTELL
The morning of third day, the harbour bridge and Opera House provided the perfect setting and time for Manning Cartell’s off site presentation. The designer opting for a cheery color palette for the resort collection presented a layered yet breezy collection that surely set the very relaxed chic mood for the collection. The same colored separates, jackets paired with slinky dresses Read the rest of this entry »

Day 2 – MBFW 16

Posted on Updated on

The second day did manage to hit quite the mark on the resort vibe with something that we are familiar of the season. Relaxed outings to some body con dresses ending with Dion Lee’s impressive presentation. From important business decisions to commercial concepts to evolutions, Day 2 was pretty interesting and safe at the same time to say the least…

THE RESORT-FUL GINGER AND SMART
With their latest collection, the sisters Alexandra and Genevieve Smart prove that no one knows their clientele better than them. Their collection of monochrome and champange punctuated with blues and prints, was laced with fringes, sheer and slinky layers. Resorting to their signature chic silhouettes, Read the rest of this entry »

Ethereal Romance   – Michael Lo Sordo
The ethereal collection presented by Michael Lo Sordo could best be described as the subtle romance of epic proportions at best. Draped as well as structured, his dresses were of overblown proportion. But for the designer, the genius lied in the details. The micro pleating Read the rest of this entry »

Fashion Pakistan Week Day 4

Posted on Updated on

Raw Romance
Sonya Battla’s Manora collection used art pieces by Naiza Khan within ensembles as prints. It sort of reminded me of when Raf Simons used Warhol’s unpublished sketches and drawings for Dior’s show. However Battla’s collection rested on her draped strengths and skills paired with deconstructed aesthetic thread that ran Read the rest of this entry »

Fashion Pakistan Week Day 2

Regalia
Amir Adnan’s royal collection was just that… Royal. Traditional yet modern though the collection did indeed bordered more on the groomswear category, there were many eastern menswear options that came to the forefront within a modern royal twist. Sherwanis, Bandhgalas, vests, waistcoats, kurtas all were present with brocaded fabric fit for a prince. My favorite had to be the bandhgala jackets that definitely are sure to fly off the racks, Read the rest of this entry »
