The collection was mainly inspired by Persian, Central Asian and Indian designs,created using hand-woven silks and intricate needle craft embroidery. Her signature subtle floral work and a combination of colours varying from bold maroons to delicate whites, her collection outdid everyone elses. We fell in love with her ravishing pastel saaris and we cannot wait to get our hands on them for the upcoming festive season. The ever gorgeous showstopper Sadaf Kanwal looked ethereal and the crowd could not stop praising her.
Sana Yasir’s extravagant collection full of silver tassels and sparkles left everyone in awe. Metallics on point! The spectacular range of silver formal wear, was created using bespoke tailoring, presenting an ode to the modern women. Each outfit exuded elegance and glamour.

You can easily wear these outfits and jewellery to the upcoming weddings and make a statement. Her striking collection, paired with intricately designed jewellery, presented one of the best ensembles on the ramp on Day 1. Her collection is definitely one that is sure to turn heads.
