In its fourth year since inception, the 2012 Karachi-based Bridal Couture Week once again passed off successfully. Showcasing not just haute couture, but also up-and-coming talent as well as established local designers, the event sponsored by the Hum Network, celebrated the latest cuts, colours and creativity in Pakistani wedding clothes.
Decorated with Roman arches, picture windows, beautiful chandeliers, statues, and fresh flower arrangements in huge Grecian urns, the ramp was all set for a wonderful three days of bridal fashion.
Day 1 featured designs by Mona Imran, Amir Baig, Obaid Sheikh, Saba Ansari, Argentum and Nomi Ansari who provided the highlights of the day with a vibrantly coloured collection of pink, red, lilac, purple and magenta shaded ghararas, chooridars and angarkhas.
Day 2 presented collections by Zainab Sajid, Humayun Alamgir, the ‘Hijab’ Collection, Shamaeel Ansari, Ruby Shakel, Saim Ali and the Indian duo Rabani & Rakha. Zainab Sajid’s collection which had a rather regal taste to it, was a splendid start to the day and featured detailed work primarily done with silver wire and grandiose cuts.
Day 3 put on display beautiful Pakistani wedding clothes by Asifa & Nabeel, Tabassum Mughal and Monia Faruki. Similar to day 1, Asifa & Nabeel’s collection had a regal touch and consisted of immaculate sherwanis in royal blue and beige, as well as ghararas in turquoise, beige and navy blue.
Tabassum Mughal’s collection on the other hand featured traditional bridal lenghas with long flowy shirts and stylish ghararas setoff in some cases by richly embellished long coats. Her walima dresses and mendhi dresses were also very appealing.
Rounding off the event with a medley of haute couture by some of Pakistan’s best talent was a special cameo display entitled ‘The Grand Couturiers’ which showcased an array of the best works and achievements of 14 designer names. Amongst the most popular were the wedding clothes by Bunto Kazmi, Rizwan Baig, Nilofer Shahid, The House of Kamiar Rokni and Umar Sayeed.
