The Spring-Summer’s Fashion Pakistan Week finally called it a wrap two weeks back, but we are having a taxing time shaking off the fashion stupor it entrapped us in. While some fashion disasters are going to loom over us for a long time, we are hoping these haute trends from the runway that caught us off-guard are here to stay. As we revive from the deep fashion comatose of the season’s biggest show let’s have a look at some of the trends that it gave the fashion industry for the season.

All the gota, kirran and crinkled lehngas

There is always a designer in the show that caters to traditional wear, and this time was no different. Turning the volume up on the festive summer season, traditional summery colours were spotted on the runway, which will be soon inculcated in this season’s summer weddings. The dupattas boasted majestic gota and kirran in the works, making them timeless traditional creations for the season.

Asymmetrical hemlines and layered clothing

The designers experimented with the hemlines, making them cutting-edge, contemporary and fun to wear. From the top to the lowers, the attires flaunted some smart layering of the drapes and chic fabric, adding the needed oomph to summer high street wear.

Androgynous fashion

A fashion that caters to both genders in wear-ability and spirit is rare but a winner. The runway served some very quintessential androgynous outfits, making them very much coveted and uber cool. The fabrics played with prints and monochromes, which make the basics of a good summer wardrobe.

The return of bohemia fashion

Was it ever gone? Not really. But it did get swept in the onslaught of more contemporary fashion manifestations. The runways made its resurgence of the classic bohemia, with the designers spinning contemporary with ethnic to produce majestic Ajrak printed sari and mirror-worked shirts. The collections aptly helmed together the traditional Pakistani craft with the contemporary.

Shalwar sari and Dhaka pyjamas

The definite standouts from the traditional collection were the shalwar saari’s and Dhaka pajamas, the silhouettes of which were a fun addition to the often less experimented traditional wear.
