Drop crotch pants
Like Day 4, Day 5 too showcased a number of fun and yet commercially viable collections, which seem to be a running theme through out the fashion week and it makes sense since there are buyers coming in for business and to look for what will sell, but the designers do need to show what they are capable of instead of belting out tried and tested options .
I know I know I am late on this one, but better late than never right!! LIFE does get in the way and did I mention, I graduated and officially a Masters (you probably know that if you follow me on instagram 😛 )
While not averse to the idea of two fashion weeks, a full fledged and succinct fashion week with 5 days for all designers over the country would make much more sense, but I will not get into the politics of fashion, all I’ll say is that it is the case over all the world so Pakistan fashion industry going through it is no anomaly. The Fashion Pakistan Week that took place in Karachi showcased a multitude of designers showcasing their collections. From them, here are my picks:
I’m Wearing: Ribbed T.Shirt (Cambridge)/ Turban Vest (PlayClan) / Drop Crotch Pants ( Emraan Rajput )/ Chappals (Khussa Mahal) / Feather Necklace (Outfitters)
For the first day of the fashion week, I went for the bohemian look that I was wanting to try for a while now. A T.shirt paired with a shalwar is not one would imagine one to pull off at an event such as this, but what’s fun in fashion if u can’t bend the rules. I paired the plum colored t.shirt with these chambray pants. The pants were one of my picks from Emraan Rajput’s Denimology collection and had bought off the runway piece but finally got a chance to take it out for a spin. While on the runway it was styled with a button down bandhgala (here) , I went for a much more casual approach. Adding onto a vest always amps up an outfit and playclan’s turban vest was due another outing in a while. Finishing it off with pointed kolhapuris, I added in a few neckpieces (one of them made from an antique key I found).
