LAHORE: Two young designers displayed their products at the World Fashion Café on Saturday.
Nosheen Faisal, a jewellery designer, displayed diamond and stone studded rings, earrings and bracelets.
She used white gold and platinum in all her products saying that she had made the choice because the two metals were in vogue.
“The rings start from Rs25,000 and the bracelets made with diamonds and precious stones go up to Rs900,000,” she said.
Amber Khawaja who put ready-to-wear dresses on display said, “In Lahore, most people are not used to buying designer wear.
My purpose is to bring designer clothes to people belonging to all stratas. The prices are economical with the average cost of one of my dresses being Rs6,500. A shirt starts from Rs3,500 and the maximum price range of my suits is Rs10,000,” she said.
Khawaja said that she had blended eastern and western trends in her designs. “The cuts are western while the materials used are eastern and indigenous,” she said.
Both Khawaja and Faisal have yet to open outlets of their own and said that it was on the agenda.
