Fashion, RAMPED UP!

A fashion show was recently held in the cosmopolitan city of Karachi that showcased the works of three upcoming designers – Agha Noor, Mohsin and Kashif Khan. The event, that took place at the Beach View Club, featured some of the latest designs in both, prêt-a-porter as well as formal wear. Eastern wear included long flowy jamawar shirts in bright tones like red and purple, embellished with motifs on the bodice and contrasting borders. The silhouettes seemed to be apt for the upcoming Eid season, as the colour palette as well as the influence of traditional eastern designs, were in tune with the festivities of the month. These outfits, with interesting contrasting hues, such as purple and pink, black and gold, orange and gold, and red, off-white and gold, exuded that touch of panache that formal ensembles are known for. The black and gold ensemble, with translucent chiffon sleeves, heavy golden dabka work and the flaring chiffon layer, was one of the most admired numbers at the event. The simplicity, yet enigmatic effect of black, fused with the royalty of golden, made the dress stand out from the rest.
The same could be said for the magenta, and brown and red outfits, whilst the former had heavy dabka work from top to bottom, the latter stood out because of its simplicity and elegance, with heavy embroidery and threadwork on the borders and the dupatta.
Be it an Eid gathering, or a wedding extravaganza, these outfits could do what is needed of them – make you stand out from the rest, and with such exquisite designs and colour combos, anyone who wears them is bound to turn heads. On the pret front, casual outfits included plain wrinkled shirts with reverse cuffs, paired with denims, and pleated jersey tops. Long flared tops, with brooches and draw-strings, combined with tights were also featured. Models also showcased some semi-formal numbers, like the sophisticated poncho-inspired flared yellow top, with a pleated bodice and embroidered cuffs, paired with black tights, and the sleeveless purple and white and chalk-white frocks, with eccentric contemporary designs. The latter had a self-printed pattern on the fabric, with a simple motif on the bodice, whilst the former had a geometrically segmented bodice in contrasting colours, and cotton ball laces stitched untidily over the front to give the ensemble a casual feel.
The event was organised by Tina, model coordination and PR by Thomas Fernandes, make-up by Nadia Baloch and choreography by Momin Amin Khan and Konain Khan.
