Nida Azwer

One designer who’s collections we always look forward to- Nida Azwer showcased “The Mughal Court” collection- the collection draws its inspiration from the scenes in the Mughal Courts. Set in fine fabrics of silks, muslin’s, nets and organza’s the collection featured lehngas, jackets and the atelier’s signature kalidaar’s across a diversity of techniques including leather cutwork and 3D embellishments.  The colour palette was primarily based in shades of mauve, blue, gray, gold and ivory. For The Mughal Court, Esfir by Hafsa and Tasbih designed a bespoke collection of jewelry titled “The Gilded Garden”; truly making it a well rounded showcase. Nida Azwer is all about the complete picture and this show as no different from hair and makeup to jewelry and silhouettes; this range was on point! psfw_march_2018_nida_azwer_blog_day_2_540_01

Saira Rizwan

Embracing the subcontinents roots Saira Rizwan’s collection was all about traditional elements. Shades of maddor and indigo along with classic combinations of black and white made appearances during the designers show. Ethnic motifs in the form of delicate embroideries and printing techniques brought each ensemble to life! Whether it was her use of traditional block prints or the draping of a gorgeous dupatta; we truly appreciated this collection!
