PFDC L'Oréal Paris Bridal Week

Nomi Ansari opened first day of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week with a royal collection titled ‘Maya’, exuding oodles of old world charm and charisma. Maya Ali was his showstopper, dressed in a mint lehnga embroidered with summery blooms.

Hussain Rehar at PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week with his collection ‘RGYAAR-MO’. Love the styling and some of the silhouettes. The tribal vibe was very prominent and distinct, with some of the embroidery techniques from over 7 decades ago. I had seen something very similar on one of my great grandma’s dupatta. You may call it vintage but I am still on the fence.

One of my favourites from day 1 of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week  – Saira Shakira Fairuza was a celebration, a palpable happiness on runway. I loved the kaftan with cigarette pants and that peachy number.

Closing show for day one of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week was Ali Xeeshan Theater Studio, with his much awaited and hyped about collection ‘Ijaazat’. His collection left no stone unturned as far as variety and raising the benchmark were concerned. He stuck to traditional but also injected his eccentric, modern and unorthodox aesthetics into bridal sphere. Am I too greedy to say that I wanted/expected more? Maybe lesser looks and more coherence? Regardless of unfulfilled desires, the modern line-up of Ali Xeeshan‘s collection did it for and I congratulate him on his first bridal solo.
