With a diversity of celebrities, models, designers and media in attendance, Day 2 of PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2010 started with great excitement. The day opened with music icons Shahzad Roy and Hadiqa Kiyani walking the ramp for Asifa & Nabeel’s collection “Romulus”.
Next on the Karachi runway was the Karachi based designer Nida Azwer enthralling the audience with her womenswear Prêt-à-porter collection entitled “Auspicious Musings”.
PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2010 believes in supporting aspiring designers and in this regard students from one of the leading fashion schools showcased their respective collections. The finale of the first act was by the PIFD students based on individual themes.
The young students were followed by the talented Khadija Shah bringing her brand Élan. Élan’s collection for Fashion Week was a dusky and subtle color palette with minimal embellishment resulting in understated pieces that yet made a statement.
Following Élan was young Prêt focused brand Muse who showcased their Spring/Summer 2011 women’s Prêt-à-porter collection for Fashion Week which was inspired by a make-believe world – a designer’s apartment surrounded by muses and cocktails till late into the night.
Muse was followed by Zara Shahjahan’s womenswear Prêt-à-porter Spring/Summer 2011 collection for Fashion Week entitled “Represent”, designed for the modern Lahori woman who is proud of her culture and heritage – who on one hand can be modern and on the other hand be as desi as one can get.
The finale of Day 2 was by industry stalwart Sehyr Saigol of “Libas”. Sehyr Saigol’s PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week collection takes inspiration from the pristine beauty of Swat. The rivers, the foliage, the winding roads and the resilience of the people from the valley.
The end of the show took an emotional turn as the “Make-A-Wish Foundation” granted a young girl’s wish to become a designer and a model and to walk the ramp. Arranged by Catwalk Productions, the girl, whose name is Khadija, walked with top models wearing a Libas outfit and looking as confident as the other models. The Make-A-Wish Foundation has enriched the lives of children who have life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work.
