Arfa Malik’s clothing is undeniably a fashionable statement for all to behold—bold, captivating, elegant, daring and modern yet founded upon deep-set Asian roots. Arfa Malik, creator of her namesake brand, embodies these qualities and more.
Arfa Malik clothing is sending shockwaves through the industry despite still being a relatively new brand. Starting in mid-2021 with a collection of high-end bridal dresses, Arfa quickly launched her brand ‘Arfa Malik’ – her own label featuring premium couture that is a modern innovation of celebrated timeless Pakistani clothing.
She has since developed into large collections of further bridal dresses, formalwear and menswear. Her collections incorporate her signature feature of glistening embellishments and a tasteful eye for detail as a means of creating elegant looks that have ever since captured Asian designer fashion.
Most recently, Arfa organised her first official catwalk of her latest summer collection at Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Manchester in May 2022 to a sold-out crowd of over 1000 people – amongst others, icons Hira Mani and Mani (Salman Sheikh) featured elegantly in her clothing on the day.
A glimpse from the first official catwalk:
Given the raving reviews of her first solo show, there is little reason to believe that the next will not be bigger and better, with more celebrity stars featuring and with further endorsements from the Pakistani and Asian-British communities.
Arfa’s fascination with the clothing industry is not merely limited to her own designs and personal brand; it also includes her close collaborations with other high-end Pakistani designers, helping to truly establish Pakistani haute couture into the British domain. Her retail arm, ‘Opal Boutique’, which can be found in the Green Quarter of Manchester, has been instrumental in showcasing ready-made, high-end Asian fashion to a growingly heritage-conscious population of Asian men and women here in the UK.
Arfa Malik’s collection of designs is undoubtedly a celebration of delightful, eye-capturing, sophisticated fashion that captivates and excites.
