FPW Day 1 went on with full zeal and zest and here is the day 2. After Sana Safinaz’ solo exhibition, the other designers were more conscious to exhibit their best of the ensembles. On the roster for their collections were Generation, Nauman Arfeen, Yasmin Zaman, Alkaram, Gul Ahmed, Obaid Sheikh, Boheme by Kanwal, and Sania Maskatiya.
The fashion show started with the showcase of quite an elegant collection by Generations. The audience’ reaction was remarkable as the models walked the ramp. The designers were eager to display their ensembles that reflect floral, greens, pastels, hand paint, and heavy embellishments in order to keep the spirit of the spring alive.
The ‘desi look’ presented by Generations was outclassed and the audience just cheered in amazement. The girls in oily chotis and sanwli wrist with bangles depicting the Pakistani culture has won the hearts of the audience.
Zeke by Yasmin Zaman
Then there was a display of Zeke by Yasmin Zaman. The collection was best suited for ready-to-wear destination weddings.
Nauman Afreen was also no less. His ‘Har Shaakh Par Ullu Behta Hai’ was an interesting as well as queer mix. His entire collection marks the work of brilliancy and performance.
Ideas Pret by Gul Ahmed
This brand chose to go for rather Victorian collars, ruffled sleeves, necklines along with an offset of floral kaftans and structural silhouettes in order to balance between cultural and architectural points of reference. Their spectacular performance is all praised by the audience.
Mak by Alkaram
The brand has taken inspiration from the iconic American artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s artwork. It has kept the runway fresh and popping with a myriad of interesting silhouettes and a bold color palette of reds, blues, muted whites, and earthy browns that was enough to mete out applause.
Boheme by Kanwal
Known for bringing her own vibrant styles to the runway and a mix of folksy, Boheme by Kanwal’s showcase at FPW SS 19 was no surprise to us all, as she stuck to what she does best. Her models were dressed in whites, bright reds, and shimmery golds.
Last but not the least, Sania Mastakiya, showcasing her Fall/Winter 2019 collection that was specifically made for New York Fashion Week last year, has brought her black and white evening wear ensembles to the FPW runway.
