PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal

Lajwanti opened the second day of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week, with its collection titled ‘a tale of Spain’. Traditional wear was paired with modern silhouettes, mesh and basket weave here and there.

Ahmad Bilal‘s Noor-e-Nazar for PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week. On a side note, these pearl bordered nose rings are going to be huge this wedding season. And I am totally on board with this #Rajasthani trend.
P.S. I also think Resham would have looked gorgeous in something more vibrant. Her muted ensemble was beautiful though.

I was about to pass Rici Melion‘s presentation at PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week day 2 as he’s primarily a menswear designer but had to include him in the round up for the love of velvet. We haven’t seen much (or enough) of it in this season, so happy to have a little v-love here.

Nida Azwer is a seasoned couturier and her collection presented today at PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week once again brought forward the best of what she has to offer. She’s an expert in using fabrics to create statements, and her shawls are often the most sought after ones. She also injected some other colours in addition to traditional white and red. What I also loved about her collection was men’s wear – it was subtle yet couture, and that in my opinion is the best way forward for men’s wear. OTT embroideries are so unfetching on men.

Another favorite from day 2 of L’Oréal Paris PFDC Bridal Week – finally something breathable yet bridal, courtesy Misha Lakhani. From black with gota to cotton candy coloured ensembles lined with intricate embroidery and tasteful draping, Misha Lakhani has tapped into a whole new market and is going to be as loved by brides as by the bridesmaids.

Zainab Salman made her PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week debut with Iqra Aziz and Ali Noor as her showstoppers and made a lasting impression. Iqra was an ivory vision, and screamed regal. Nabila Salon did a fantastic job with her hair and makeup, adding a whole new level of oomph to the collection. A big round of applause to the new entrant and love from Germany.

Jeem with ‘Mizaaj’ at PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week – pretty collection, especially Areeba Habib’s lehnga. But it’s Hamza Bokhari’ shirt with Urdu letters that I have got my eyes on!

Finale for day 2 of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week was by the powerhouse of Kamiar Rokni. The House of Kamiar Rokni promised art, culture and imagination, and delivered a whimsical bridal collection that was true to the claim. I especially loved the white pieces,though every piece was a winner in its own right.
