    Preview of ‘Kalamkaar’ by Ayesha Somaya Showcasing at 7th Bridal Couture Week 2013!

    Following their inspired Zodiac print collection, Ayesha-Somaya will be showcasing a brand new bridal couture range at the 7th Pantene Bridal Couture Week 2013 in Lahore on 29th November’13. The collective entitled ‘Kalamkaar’, is as its name suggests inspired from the age old art of Kalamkaari. The patterns stay true to their roots drawing on the tree of life, animal figurines and floral patterns within the core design ethos of an Ayesha-Somaya signature;feminine, romantic and sensuous.

    The Ayesha Somaya Kalamkaar collective promises luxurious cholis, trailing lehngas and fusion jackets in dynamic shades of ivory, gold, rusts, orange, olive and red which give a modern twist to the Kalamkaari story. The collection also features handcrafted embroidery work with Zardozi, Kamdaani and Silk thread woven in luxurious cotton nets, silks and jamavar.

    Kalamkaar is inspired by the time honored craft of calligraphy which is widely celebrated in the subcontinent and dates back to the 18th century. Both collections celebrate the ancient and the mysterious and have been integrated into our designs, cuts and patterns to create fashionable ensembles for the style conscious consumer.” – Ayesha Sohail and Somaya Adnan

    Kalamkaar will be available for custom order at The Ayesha-Somaya design studio and e-store, immediately following its runway debut.
