Indian fashion is being influenced by Pakistani designers. In fact, most of our designers are borrowing elements from Pakistani fashion to give a tweak to bridal and festive wear. The salwar kameez is now ankle-length and the silhouette is flowy, long at the back and slightly short in the front. The salwars range from fitted churidars to loose pant styles. The gowns also have lots of embroidery and gota work. The colour palette is rich and colourful, with ample shimmer and little scope for subtle and toned down and beaten hues.
Pakistani designers Umar Sayeed, Sana Safinaz, Nida Azwer and Maheen Karim among many others, part of the Soiree Boutique in Dubai will be showing their festive collection for the season at Hemant Room, Four Seasons Hotel, Worli, Mumbai. Today is the last day of the showing. Check them out.
On the other hand, two designers from Pakistan Fashion Design Council have just arrived in Delhi and will be showing their creations and guiding brides to be on their trousseau. Maheen Khadar of Karma and Khadija Shah of Elan will be in the Capital till October 26, 2012 and available for one on one interactions at The Boulevard, M4, South Extension, Part II, New Delhi, in between 11 am and 8 pm.
