Project Runway: PSFW16 Day 2 – Ali Xeeshan, Nomi Ansari, Sania Maskatiya (Part I)
Ali Xeeshan out did himself with his “Voodoo” inspired luxury/prêt line. We were simply enthralled by all the shimmer and sparkle that swept the catwalk. The collection had an interesting dark theme that was beautifully portrayed through the understated colour palette of metallics, dark greys and black. Sudden pops of neon yellow and flashy embellishments added brightness to the effect of bursts of joy giving a rather uncanny feel to the collection. We especially loved the 70’s style pants, paired with summer jackets as well as the element of European period fashion as seen in some of the prints and the leg of mutton sleeves. Over all there was a very strong feeling of nostalgia to the collection of celebrating glorious days gone by, of death and rebirth.
As the opening designer for day 2, Nomi Ansari, had us swooning over a signature vibrant and joyous collection of bright hues and simple cuts. The appeal lay in very structured and defined silhouettes which were brought to life with the loud and funky pop art prints. The combination of pop art and luxury silks and chiffons, made at once an awami street style statement juxtaposed with glamour silhouettes that we are accustomed to seeing from the artist. Shoulders had a real moment on the catwalk, teamed with fun and flirty frocks. Once again Nomi Ansari pulls of an exemplary show of contained yet experimental fashion.
This time around Sania Maskatiya captivated us with sheer simplicity and clean lines. Her new collection “Decorer” perfectly represents the sumptuous “Art Nouveau” era with the lavish choice of colours, embroidered textures and geometrical prints. We were definitely a huge fan of the matching separates which were a stunning combination of chic and elegance! Her usage of colour blocking and monochrome statement pieces with minimalist detail set her apart from the rest of the designers. ‘Less is more’ this Spring and once again Sania Maskatiya does it best.
