The PFDC L’Oreal Bridal Week 2019 is purely a week away and it’s time for the fashion pleasant to regroup and gather in the awesome city of Lahore. Scheduled to take vicinity between September 26 and 28, the 3-day PLBW is ranked as one of the most credible platforms for weddings put on in the country; it will be accompanied by means of the Karachi-based FPW Winter/Festive 2019, later in October.
We do see some structural changes in the PLBW barracks this year. Sadia Siddiqui, previously Show Director at the biannual PFDC trend week, will not be returning this season. Show Direction is being handled inhouse by way of the PFDC. London-based mannequin Hira Shah has been roped in as choreographer. Hair and makeup, as always, will be handled by way of Nabila.
The lineup itself is a combination of 21 established and unknown labels, with some of our fashion week favourites returning to the runways whilst others, like Elan, Nomi Ansari, Sana Safinaz and Zara Shahjahan are either sitting the season out, opting to show at the FPW Winter Festival next month or are planning to go solo.
The House of Kamiar Rokni
As always, I’m very excited about The House of Kamiar Rokni, who’s showcasing a collection called Golestān, the Garden of Roses, which “represents a poetry of ideas” in the designer’s personal words. “Golestān takes its title and innovative interpretation from Persian poet Sa’adi’s magnum opus, providing a collection as a confluence of many thoughts however finally proposing a celebration of one’s individuality; one the place no two flowers are alike in the House of Kamiar Rokni’s Garden of Roses.”
It has to be noted that Kami gained the Lux Style Award as Best Designer (Bridal Couture) for 2018, which makes him an even more covetable name. He will be closing Day 2.
Nida Azwer’s energy is her craft, her love for bridal couture in the most basic feel and this new collection, Anarkali, stays true to Nida’s love for miniature and Mughal architecture. We will be seeing sixteen new pieces tune into Nida’s trademark silhouettes. “We are delighted to exhibit this new series at PLBW,” she says. “Making finely embroidered portions has turned out to be the soul of our diagram work, and we proceed to create the greatest workmanship in every new collection.”
Mahgul has every other pretty coveted title at bridal week; her artistic renditions of bridal couture are always a satisfaction to witness. She will be opening the night phase of Day 2. I’m also looking ahead to Misha Lakhani and Saira Shakira, who by no means failed to impress. Fahad Hussyn will absolutely convey his unique combo of vintage couture to the runway (he will be opening the evening show on Day 2) whereas Hussain Rehar, the latest title of upward jab so swiftly to the forefront, continually brings something new and revolutionary to the otherwise common bridal table. Hussain Rehar will be opening fashion week, certainly on a high note, on Day 1. HSY is scheduled to close fashion week and its collection, as always, will currently be a befitting grand finale to a match that celebrates fashion.
Mohsin Naveed Ranjha
Mohsin Naveed Ranjha, satisfactory known for his Ranveer Singh campaign, will be showing solo at fashion week and the interesting aspect that his (presumably star studded) exhibit will be the first on the early evening slot on Day 3 Mohsin speaks very fondly of his Ranveer Singh shoot however when you consider that the Bollywood ship has long due to the fact sailed, he promises to carry different forms of celeb pride to the runway in this solo show.
PLBW veterans Nickie Nina and Sonia Azhar are lower back this season and will be accompanied by Saira Rizwan and the Republic via Omar Farooq as brands that are properly set up and have big purchasers, but are a few steps away from giving us an unforgettable collection.
New designers, particularly clean graduates and upcoming names, are constantly a thrilling phase of fashion week. While the world looks ahead to installing names – no doubt each and every fashion week’s backbone – it is the rising intelligence that continues things clean and innovative.
Other than the Aquafina Rising Talent Show, there are numerous new names this season, most of them PIFD graduates, who will be displaying as section of the early evening shows. There’s Ahmed Sultan, a PIFD graduate who first confirmed the early nighttime ultimate year, Asma Aslam and Noreen Neelam, also displaying early nighttime this year. The new names encompass FAS, J&H and Tayyab Moazzam.
The PFDC favorite this year is Multan primarily based Zubia Zainab, who has been given an evening slot, something that convinces me that she has to be good.
I would recommend a new crop of younger designers to be pro-active and contact us and the media, with previews of their suggestions earlier than really showing. It’s usually a top thought to create some kind of activity around your ideas, especially when you’re unknown.
