The third and final day of the seventh consecutive PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week 2017 was a total hit in our books– Pakistan’s top designers showcased their best designs on a platform that endeavors to define and present contemporary and traditional Pakistani Bridal fashion. Forecasting the years trend in all things bridal; have a look at our top picks from the evening below:
Sadaf Fawad Khan Bridals
SFK Bridals made its debut with the bridal collection ‘Elayna’ at the seventh edition of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week 2017. Dedicated to and named after the designers daughter Elayna, meaning ‘Shining Light’, the collection takes inspiration from the colors of the Moonbow, a lunar rainbow. The designs were subtle and elegant- exuding an old world charm; each outfit had a delicate essence to it. Created in singular metallic tones of rich reds, blues, gilded golds, lilacs and soft shades of peach. The designs highlighted the intricate hand worked embellishments- giving each element a moment to shine!
Saira*Shakira showcased their bridal collection ‘Artemisia’ on night 3 of the three day extravaganza. Like the Greek warrior-queen that it is named after, Artemisia is an ode to the beauty and strength of women. Juxtaposing edgy silhouettes with traditional embellishment and intricate patterns, the design house stayed true to its signature contemporary philosophy and presented a collection for the modern-day bride sure to make her feel like a queen on her special day. The designs are ideal for the modern bride of today- from collard bridals to halter necks and cold shoulder detailing; the designers definitely went all out with their latest collection!
Zuria Dor made her PLBW debut with couture collection ‘King of Her Castle’- The collection draws its inspiration from the progressive Pakistani woman who is all set to compete with the world. A fashion forward range of haute couture looks had our hearts. Incorporating a variety of fabrics including organza, raw silk, kundan net and kumkhaab. The silhouettes were a fusion of western and eastern cuts. Each design of the 16-piece collection was adorned with geometrical and floral patterns, with flat and 3D embellishments, hand painted enhanced with metallic handwork. The designers keen attention for detailing was truly brought to the forefront with this collection and we absolutely adored it.
Fahad Hussayn Couture showcased ‘Hoshruba: Dara Shikoh Aur Sunehri Churail’, a bridal couture collection as the grand finale for the seventh edition of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week. The collection delved into the world of magical realism where historical figures meet folklore in a fantastically penned saga of larger than life Mughal grandeur. A dramatic showcase featuring ensembles, accessories and hand made embellishments like never seen before! We loved how the designer created a noteworthy collection- breaking the mold of what is thought to be the traditional bridal; rendering this range of looks an absolute hit in our books!
