Fashion Pakistan Week 2014

The sixth edition of the Fashion Pakistan Week has thrown up a riot of colours on the ramp. Here’s a sneak peek.

There wasn't a colour that didn't make an appearance at the ramp on the last day of the fashion week here. A pop of neon, a dash of gold, ash-white or saffron, with digital prints in company, brought down the curtains on the fashion extravaganza.

Pakistan's colour sentiments have always drawn towards subtle pastel tones. But Friday evening at the Fashion Pakistan Week, there was a definitive change in exploring more sunny and summery options for a bright spring/summer ahead.

With many Pakistani designers not capable of producing their own fabric, many of them have resorted to digital printing. All these days if there was a common thread that bound the collections together, it was digital printing.

Friday too was no different.

The colour burst came from the bad boy of Pakistani fashion, Ali Xeeshan. Calling it a spiritual line and inspired by a monk's life, the audience was set to see the somber side of the Lahore-based designer. But the moment popular Bollywood number "Jumma Chumma" started playing; one knew drama would unfold.

Models in robes, long dresses accentuated at the waist, kimono-sleeve dresses and a head gear, started sashaying down the ramp, with dashes of neon green, feisty orange, and shocking pink staying with the eye on an ash-white base of the fabric. There was emphasis on colour blocking in some pieces, but the monotony was broken soon.

Saffron-coloured dresses in different silhouettes and cuts took over. There was a lot more drama and design aesthetics, but my only gripe was if this was a monk-inspired collection then the colour palette should have been maroon and not saffron!

Or else, he should have said it was an Indian ascetic-inspired line.

Welcoming the spring in its fullest was Maleena C.Nasir of label Daaman. Using prints of leaves, roses, trees and petals, this young designer presented a wearable collection -- cigarette pants teamed with long kurtas, smart shirts with trousers and a few chic jumpsuits.

The colour palette ranged from cherry yellow to blossoming pink, morning orange sun to pure white -- it was easy on eyes, and comfortable wear.

It is always pleasing to see a sari on the Pakistani ramp, and a delight to see a well-draped sari.

This was what label Kayseria delivered at the ramp with its finest prints transformed into saris and high-slit suits. The entire show had a rustic feel to it and resembled women from bucolic Gujarat and Rajasthan -- from the Indian side. Perhaps, this collection showcased how similar the culture is in these regions that border Pakistan.

Refreshing, vibrant and one of the finest of the day.

Digital prints dominated the collection of designer Wardha Saleem and Tapulicious by Tapu Javeri.

Javeri's brand features Pakistani designers Kamiar Rokni, Hassan Sheheryar Yasin and Mohsin Ali.

"This collection is an extension of my relationship with them," said Javeri at the beginning of his show.

Hence, he presented three capsule collections and all of them had a heavy dosage of graphic printing.

From geisha to photographs of Karachi, from monochromatic zebra and tiger prints to psychedelic busy prints -- the edgy, western silhouettes were heavy on busy prints. Nevertheless the audience cheered and the show went on.
