After showcasing her bridal collection, Wanderlust, at PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week, Misha Lakhani launched her ready to wear flagship store in Lahore. This is the second standalone Misha Lakhani boutique in Pakistan.
Speaking about the store launch and the brands participation at PFDC L’Oreal Paris bridal week, Misha Lakhani said; “PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week is a very professional platform and the bar is raised every year; it just gets better and better which is why we consistently show at this platform. Further, our label has grown exponentially within bridal wear, formal wear and pret a porter in these last three years and to this end, this September also marks the launch of our flagship store in Lahore, of which we are delighted. It is our first step towards regional growth, of which our patrons can expect more with the soon to be launched Misha Lakhani e-commerce platform.”
For PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week, Misha Lakhani introduced the Wanderlust collection, which was also available to view and order at the new Lahore flagship. Inspired by travel mementos, art deco design, Ottoman and old Indian craft and heritage, patrons can expect old-world charm, an eclectic fusion of textiles and vintage craftsmanship. The Misha Lakhani bride is best characterized as the bohemian heiress who challenges convention yet loves all things traditional.
Wanderlust is based in the shades of sea green, placid blue, sage, peridot yellow, pink lemonade and rani pink with hints of gold, turquoise and plum whereas the fabrics range from georgette, tulle, velvet and chiffon to brocade, muslin, kathan and mehsuri. Expect embellishment and detailing techniques including zardosi, ari, applique, vasli, beaten work, pearls, marori and kacha resham. Key trends to look out for this season at Misha Lakhani are unexpected combinations and the understated statement: fitted high-waisted pants inside billowy angarkhas, kurti-lenghas, voluminous chiffon lenghas, oversized kurtis with skinnies and romantic dupattas.
