Turkish Glamour
A fashion show was recently organised in Istanbul, the beautiful capital of Turkey to showcase the beauty and cultural diversity of Pakistan. The objective of the event was to reinforce the existing bonds of friendship between the people of Pakistan and Turkey through the common medium of fashion. The event that was held at Sheraton Maslak Hotel, was an extension of Pakistan Cultural Week celebrations held earlier at Ankara. Pakistani fashion stalwart Nilofer Shahid presented her collection titled 'Iqbal & Rumi', as Turkish models sashayed down the ramp wearing gorgeous Pakistani couture wear. The noteworthy fashion event was admired for showcasing promising talent as both established and young designers had a chance to shine, with collections that ranged from wearable to avant-garde.
Though Istanbul prides itself on its western look, its fashion designers have not all forgotten their local heritage. The designers incorporated a lot of ethnic motifs in their collections. There were quite a few tribal-looking dresses adorned with exotic floral designs along with some colourful toga-like pieces. Meanwhile, the geometric print used by the designers appeared to have come straight out of a book of tales from the orient. Some designers opted for more feminine forms that featured chic fabrics and cuts, vintage floral prints and a gorgeous palette including black, red, intense oranges and copper. The elegantly draped pieces in striking hues such as gold, cerulean, burnt sienna and brown, were delicate but unfussy. Other noteworthy pieces included minimalist dresses and blouse-and-trouser combinations, all in darker hues like black and reds, which were amongst the event's most eye-catching numbers.
