QMobile Bridal Couture Week 2017 Day Three

Day three of  QHBCW had its high highs and lows; it superseded Day One but was left behind by Day Two in terms of glamour and quality that walked down the runway.


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.

Nickie Nina‘s bridal collection for 2017 featured luxurious brocades coupled with intricate multi-dimensional embroidery while effortlessly embracing the romance of royal couturiers from time gone by. The designer duo opted for pastels of mint green, pinks, lilac and stormy grey, which were highlighted by silver and gold 3D embellishments transitioning into multi-coloured jewel tones.
Sonya Battla‘s collection, ‘Aatish’, was inspired by Kashmiri craft and traditions. Every ensemble was worked upon for months, and the craftsmanship was apparent from the detailed, intricate embroidery across bodice and hemlines. What stood out was the use of velvet, a rarity this season, helping winter brides look graceful despite the chill.
