Favourite 15: Fashion Pakistan Week A/W 2014

Fashion Pakistan week was held in Karachi, a three day event loaded with fashion, celebrities and huge media coverage. Like all other fashion weeks, this too had it’s highs and lows. The best thing was that finally our collections are becoming more cohesive; which means that every designer now follows a certain silhouette, colour palette and inspiration for their respective segment, which really didn’t happen in the yesteryears. So yes, baby steps it is! The biggest low was that as a whole, this fashion week was more spring/summer than autumn/winter in terms of fabric choice and colour palettes. One can’t simply get away with monochromatic (black and white) being wintery, thats just not justified. Anyhow, superb effort put in by the Fashion Pakistan council and some exceptional fashion pieces to look out for!

Here’s FTA’s favourite 15:

1. White on white embellished crop top with a midi skirt by Amna Aqeel. Some sheer elegance!
