KARACHI: The finale ramp exhibit of TFPW (Telenor Fashion Pakistan Week) was a motivating amalgamation of exclusive textures, unique pastel hues, blasé looks and bohemian themes. The designers illustrated inimitable fashion trends that would mark the inauguration of the upcoming seasons.

Zara Shahjahan

‘Forever Boho’, the collection bragged Shahjahan’s keenness for vintage floral patterns and bridal designs. Her prêt wear anthology unfolded on the ramp comprising trendy Bohemian looks crafted with an Eastern twist. Capturing the essence of boho chic, the designer embossed distinctive motifs of flora onto the ensembles. From jet to ivory backdrops, the collection was decked with ethnic mirror-work and traditional embroidery.

Deepak Perwani

Titled, ‘La Dolce Vita’, Perwani’s exuberant collection incorporated digital prints in geometric designs and floral prototypes. From tribal tops and snug cigarette pants to silk jumpsuits and over coats — the collection was a parade of colour and discrete textures. Singer Ali Azmat was teamed with Bollywood actor-fimmaker Pooja Bhatt as the showstoppers for the collection.

Sonya Battla

‘Manora’, the collection was an eclectic blend of chiffon and jersey fabrics, featuring voluminous shapes and ample pleats. The compilation comprised nature-inspired hues teamed with faded bottoms. The lengthy dresses, chunky accessories and sea-shells festooning the ensembles were an innovative aesthetic. Ayesha Tammy Haque was one of the showstoppers for the collection.

Shamaeel Ansari

In the collection, titled ‘Bring Your Renaissance’, Ansari demonstrated a luxurious-vintage inspired assemblage. From floral designs to chunky motifs, intricate embroidery and hemlines trimmed with lace, the collection was only one of its kind. The jamawaar material was used to its full potential in creating the outfits. Emitting an elitist appeal, Ansari showcased distinct colour palettes consisting of deep burgundies and ivory-greys.

Rizwanullah for Fifth Element

In his collection, titled ‘Age of Elegance’, the designer utilised solid shades of white and crème. An effective utilisation of the silk fabric, the anthology permeated a celestial feel. Featuring an interesting mix of Eastern and Western cuts, the collection boasted lace saris and toga style numbers. Swarovski crystals added glitz to the ensembles whilst maintaining the elegant appeal of the designs.

Daaman by Maleeha Chaudhry

Modern yet minimalistic, the collection flaunted designs meant for a free-spirited contemporary woman. Employing shades of ashen, beige and midnight blues, the ensembles saw a variation in cuts. The fusion techniques used to amplify the simple tailoring patterns added a sense of juxtaposition to the textures. Daaman made an attempt to redefine fashion, while staying true to its signature refined assortment.

Amna Aqeel

Titled, ‘Romancing the Lines’, Aqeels’s collected works utilised an assortment of fabrics. Toying with chiffons, silk and brocades, in muted shades and restrained designs, the ensembles were embroidered with gold wire work and the time-honoured goota kaam. Efficiently assembled, the collection comprised Western cuts stylised in an Eastern fashion. From ankle-length snug pants to chic crop-top style cholis, the compilation oozed sophistication.
