The Pakistan Fashion Design Council (PFDC) began its 20th successive fashion show in Lahore last evening. Season after season, PFDC creates shows that highlight the best of Pakistani fashion and this year was no less. With a wide array of talented and creative designers, the first day’s collection showcases ended on a high note leaving fashion enthusiasts wanting more.
The show kicked off with the versatile collection of Zara Shahjahan which purely showed an Adab of individual style. The collection was a sophisticated display of chikankari, zari, zardozi, kamdani and gota work. They portrayed the distinct style of Luck now on the ramp which has not only survived but flourishes today. In this city where arts, music, and literature thrived and remarkable monuments were constructed which continue to serve as beautiful reminders of grandeur in the city’s history, Zara’s collection revealed why Lakhnavi women have helped the city become ‘The Golden City of the East’.
From pastels to bolds, intricately embroidered to completely embellished work, each piece was festooned elegantly by the models. Ensembles were created from organza, silk and colorful embellishments.
The traditional khussas and beautiful ghongroos on the end of pants made the walk pleasing. Jhoomars, knotted braids, shalwars and moderate use of kamdani, all made fashion statements.
