KARACHI  : With the world breathing fashion at this very moment, Pakistan’s runway division too is making waves with FPW standing out as a debonair trailblazer. From amusingly multi-coloured and intriguingly humdrum monochrome ensembles to bling-tastic robes and luxe velour, the designers seemed to be on a roll to leave a lasting trail on a fashionista’s cotton-candy heart (I might be referring to myself!).

Having said that, not all designers managed to harvest that heart-flutter effect. Three designers that undoubtedly stood out from a bevy of mundane strategies were Aamna Aqeel, Misha Lakhani and Erum Khan. Incorporating all elements of theatricality with enamour for desi beats, these ladies owned that runway!

Rightly titled ‘Bridal Odyssey’, Erum pulled off a majestic amalgam of sorts. Lehengas that exuded inimitable technique and intricate needlework, the ramp immediately radiated a regal vibe. A prudently elected palette consisting of hues like marsala and muted green, I wouldn’t be surprised if prospective brides race to the designer for their wedding wear – let’s make that imperial wedding wear!

Being the show-opener comes with its perils and ploys but Misha hit bull’s eye at slaying spectators by parading a collection that bawled classy craftsmanship and contemporary panache laced with traditional edge. Her runway familiarised Karachiites to a cosmic episode that comprised delicately sheer sarees, an assortment of pants, opulent hand-woven silk pieces and colours that bewitched onlookers – and those cholis – oh-those-cholis – were to die for!

If anyone knows how to master the off-shoulder trend impeccably, it’s Aamna. A collection titled ‘Palace Wonderland’, the designer was on a mission to communicate with the avant-garde fashion brood. Though it was inspired by imperial courts of the sub-continent, it oozed a futuristic vibe. The crème ensembles that boasted flowy patterns and renewed cuts were most certainly utter knock-outs. The simplistic feel of the glitzy assemblages engulfed audiences in a fantastical spectacle.
