Pakistan Fashion Design Council (PFDC) Sunsilk Fashion Week 2013 Lahore day 1, day 2 photography

LAHORE: Print, print and more print is what Day 1 at the Pakistan Fashion Design Council (PFDC) Sunsilk Fashion Week entailed.

In a nutshell, this season seems to be headed towards extravagance via prints and solids with minimal to no embellishments. It is without a doubt safe to say that PFDC knows how to put on a show. Here’s the breakdown:

Asifa & Nabeel, Yahsir Waheed, Nickie Nina, Somal Halepoto, Fahad Hussayn, Shehla Chatoor, Ayesha Hashwani, Feeha Jamshed, 

Tapu Javeri, Sublime by Sara Shahid, Sania Maskatiya, FnkAsia, Élan, Misha Lakhani, Akif Mehmood, Maria B


Fashion Week in Lahore opened with a bang with Tapu Javeri’s Tapulicious collection. Collaborating with Sadaf Malattere, Wardha Saleem, Adnan Pardesy and Rizwan Beyg, the collection had signature elements from each of the designers. Sadaf Malaterre’s fringe paired with Adnan Pardesy’s structured pleats wrapped with Wardha’s psychedelic prints, the collection was eye-catching with a number of hits-and-misses. While Fayeza Ansari sporting a funky eye patch was edgy, Mehreen Syed’s showstopper dress looked like a bad costume choice for Dracula-land. From Patiala shalwars to Western short dresses, the collection had a mixture of cuts and colour combos; however, the lime green mini dress was by far the best thing to come out of the collection.


Sublime by Sara Shahid


Lahore’s go-to-prét designer showed her latest collection titled NOW, featuring primarily solid neon-coloured outfits that were simple, wearable and bang on trend. Cybil’s outfit with solid block prints stood out and the wrap-around-neck hugging halters were a hit. Sara played a lot with drop shoulder tops and flowing drapery, which were plain and pretty. However, the chunky elastic bands in the back of jumpsuits looked slightly tacky. What did not work in Sublime’s favour were the black-and-white striped shirts with pink embroidery.
