HIGHLIGHTS OF QHBCW – DAY 3
Asifa & Nabeel presented a collection that embodied vibes of oceanic tranquility and carnations’ fragility. Though the collection was called ‘a roaring melodrama’, it was more traditional than dramatic. The duo inclined towards straight-lined shirts in varying lengths, paired with everything from three-quarter cigarette pants, flared bottoms and voluminous lehngas.
Annus Abrar chose the colourful route to bridal couture, and fell just a little short to grandeur. Themed Shehnaai, the collection comprised traditional silhouettes, with delicate luxe fabrics, reworked metallic finishes and glamorous lashings of handwork. There was a palpable royal undertone, which would have turned the tide had silhouettes been crisp for more than three looks.
Sana Abbas paid homage to the opulence and traditions of sub-continental weddings, using luxe fabrics like organza, net, lamê, brocade, and jamavar, in ebony ivories, pastel pinks, aqua blues and dusky grays hues.
