Project Runway: PHBCW Top Picks- Shamsha Hashwani, Umsha By Uzma Babar and Anaya By Kiran Chaudhry
The three-day bridal extravaganza Pantene HUM Bridal Couture Week 2019 concluded with some spectacular, experimental and traditional bridal trends. The final day also witnessed high end celebrities on the ramp as showstoppers for the country’s top and burgeoning designers. From contemporary pastels from Anaya By Kiran Chaudhry to traditional colors and silhouettes by Shamsha Hashwani and Umsha By Uzma Babar; here are our top picks from the show!
Anaya by Kiran Chaudhry
Right out of a fairytale Anaya by Kiran Chaudhry presented their debut bridal wear collection that fused vintage glam with contemporary aesthetics ensuring every bride feels like royalty on her special day. Inspired by French beading, Constellation and Japanese cut stones with soft pastel color pallets on delicate fabrics like tulle and organza, their debut collection “La Vie En Rose” is all about contemporary and bold cut lines to create that magical effect. With a delicate color palette the designer’s collection packed a punch with her statement silhouettes using high collars, dropped sleeves and mermaid cuts- adding pearls, stones and crystals to add that extra oomph. “La Vie en Rose” hit all the right notes for the bride of today.
Taking inspiration from the Mughal Dynasty featuring beaming gemstones and the majestic confines of sandstone architecture- Shamsha Hashwani’s signature style truly shined bright in this collection. Filling her bridals with rich earthy tones of olive green, deep red and burnt orange with heavy gold and silver hand work. “Diwan-i-Khas” is made for the timeless bride- outfits that will last a lifetime and can be passed down for generations and it’s safe to say we couldn’t get enough!
Umsha by Uzma Babar
The festive collection “Khwab” is about Uzma Babar’s love for bridal couture- we witnessed models strutting the runway and telling an entire wedding story from nikkah to valima this collection had it all. With delicate details and striking color schemes Umsha By Uzma Babar truly takes the cake when it comes to bold, beautiful silhouettes- angharka’s, anarkali’s, Farah I gharara’s and lehnga’s; this collection had something for every occasion.
