- Day One
Karma Red, led by design director Maheen Kardar Ali, opened the week’s proceedings with a captivating collection, titled ‘Shehzadi Ki Rani’.
A sea of red designs cascaded down the runway one by one, each being more captivating than the last.
The bold red pieces were quintessentially dramatic and perfect for the fashion forward bride.
Using materials such as handcrafted organza, nets and tissues, each avatar was sensuously chic.
Certain designs also presented a slight amount of skin baring too, along with gorgeous gold embroidery, which was a standout aspect of the collection.
Ali Xeeshan‘s collection was titled ‘Tufaan’ was expected to exhibit a showstopping collection, and that’s exactly what happened.
His visibly lavish collection was awe-inspiringly beautiful, particularly with the rich Pakistani embroidery, using fine gold wire.
Each design looked heavy in its weight, yet still maintained that carefree feel to it.
The differentiation between the avatars was what made this collection work.
From earthy deep tones, to bright desert colours, we saw some stunning designs, some of which were worn by Meesha Shafi and Shaoi Ali Abro.
- Day Two
Sana Safinaz created a breathtaking collection, titled ‘France Lesage’.
Bollards filled with floral designs took centre stage, and set the tone for the entire fashion compilation.
Lengths, layering, and materials were playful, whilst the colour palette was strictly sensual.
Peplum cuts, mid-length jackets, and elevated skirts diverted our attention to the silhouettes, which were timelessly elegant.
Misha Lakhani‘s collection, ‘Wanderlust’, integrated embellishment and detailing which highlighted this season’s trends.
Kurti-lehengas, dupattas, and a variety of other avatars were eye catchingly unique in their designs.
Sea blues and soft pinks filled the designer’s slot, which looked wonderfully stylish.
House of Kamiar Rokni presented the finale of Day Two with their ‘Alchemy’ collection.
With jewellery pieces designed by Rehana and Shakil Saigol of Private Collection, this was definitely one of the greatest presentations during the Fashion Week.
Global embellishments and fascinating silhouettes created a signature look specifically for what HOKR stands for, ‘essence of elegance’.
The busy embroidery on each avatar formed a beautiful sea of creativity when the models united towards the end of the show, and truly encapsulated the brilliancy of the designers.
Some pieces even had differentiations in patterns on the upper part of their attire, and contrasting designs for the lower half.
HOKR was most jaw droppingly spectacular.

Asifa & Nabeel unveiled their ‘Venetian Dreams’ collection, which entailed vibrancy in colours, and ethnically beautiful jewelled pieces.
They opened the show with a black sequined design which was finished off with a floral lining towards the hem of the dress.
Ranging in lengths and embellishment design, each avatar screamed femininity, and put forth a palette of pinks and dark ebony colours.
Nomi Ansari showcased the collection entitled ‘Oudh’, and was vividly vibrant.
The focus on this collection was all about colour. Sequined pieces were show stoppingly breathtaking, some of which were worn by Mehwish Hayat.
HSY concluded the day with his Fall/Winter Bridal Couture Collection.
His designs were extremely demure and sophisticated, with soft, feminine colours prevailing the entirety of each piece.
Western silhouettes fused together with Eastern embroidery, which created an interestingly edgy look.
The powerhouse designer also joined forces with Zohra Rahman for their jewellery pieces.
