The finale of Day-1 was presented by the design trio Kamiar Rokni, Tia Noon and Rehan Bashir of the coveted House of Kamiar Rokni. Titled ‘Heritage 2016’, the collection stayed true to The House of Kamiar Rokni’s love for craft, tradition and the timeless classic beauty associated with Pakistani wedding wear.
Heritage 2016 draws its inspiration from the traditional Pakistani wedding and the character and mood of the diverse events part of each wedding. Inspired by a sense of nostalgia drawn from the more vintage Pakistani weddings, The House of Kamiar Rokni reinterpreted traditional clothing and jewelry to present a collection that is timeless in its beauty. The collection is based in rich fabrics, from heavy velvets to rich, pure silks complemented by tissue, organza net as well as touches of brocade and jamavar. With craftsmanship engaging traditional zardozi, resham and gotta with accents of pearl and crystal, Heritage 2016 presented three distinct colour stories: from the very soft and pastel pinks, aquas, lemons, whites and blues to a medley of strong, sharp and bright colors in a nod to the House’s folk influences; moving at the end into solid jewel tones. The House further emphasised the dupatta this season as a versatile statement piece in itself. Indeed Heritage 2016 presented traditional silhouettes across a range of cuts to deliver a mood that is clean and unfussy.
