Weekend Obsession: All That Shimmers…

…is the new trend! Sequins have been hitting the international runways for a while and have now found their way to the Karachi fashion scene as well! The Spring PFDC Sunsilk FPW 2012 had an assortment of designers experimenting with sequins and metallic gold mesh fabrics. For a country that is known for the intricacy of its traditional  ‘kaam’ it seems only natural. Sana Safinaz displayed exceptional skill in their use of shimmery gold embossed fabrics for the dresses and skirts accessorized with metallic belts and chains accentuating the waist line, and embellished gold jackets to match. The pieces were at par with international standards while at the same time being remarkably original. Shehla Chatoor also carried off her cocktail collection with equal poise using exotic leather and shimmery mesh fabrics embroidered with intricate hand crafted ‘gaara’  work. The silhouettes were cut with stylish twists and draped necklines.



Adding sequins to your ensemble really adds a sparkle and confidence to your outfit as well as to your attitude! Sequins are not just for evening wear but can also be worn at day time as long as worn in small amounts such as  cropped jackets,  a scarf, shoes or even just a clutch depending on how much shimmer the occasion demands. I’m still looking for the perfect gold sequined cropped blazer! You can pair it up with skinnys, a casual white top.  Take a cue from some of these celebs and dazzle this weekend!
