MBFWA RESORT 2018 Day 5

Posted on Updated on

Day 5
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 .

Weave Magic

Posted on

One of the most fun things that I as a textile designer and a fashion designer get to see at Indian fashion weeks is a designers from India do well is the exploration of cotton based hand weaves and handloomed fabrics, something the Pakistani counterparts need to learn. While one may see Maheen Khan venture into Banarsi fabric and running brilliantly with it, the examples are few and far in between. At AIFW fashion week,one got to see an array of designers exploring organic cotton weaves and playing them into different aesthetics

I love a good How-To.  Usually I’m searching the world wide web for instruction on dry brushing, making eco friendly cleaning supplies, or cutting a pomegranate.  Have you seen that one?!

So, I was captivated by all the fashion How To’s this week.  IFB bloggers showed how to style scarves, striped pants, chokers, metallics, and flash tattoos,  just to name a few.  Through all of that, summer continued to be a strong theme with music playlists, vacation travel logs, and reviews of concert wear and museum sneakers.

all five

Striped pants are fun. With LCM and Pitti Umo, where many designers presented printed menswear, printed pants still elude many of the usual everyday guy who still likes to stick to his basics. It is not everyday that you get see men sporting something as graphic as black and white striped pants. Recently when JOSHUA MILTON, a friend of mine and a blogger, recently sported striped pants, I instantly hit off on the idea of doing multiple ways to style this graphic wonder. While I love the monochrome look of pairing these with black, there are still a number of ways that these pair of elusive pants can be styled…
