Written by on October 22nd, 2012 No Comment

After the phenomenal success of FPW3, it’s Lights, camera and fashion again. All glitz and glamour of fashion returned to Karachi with fourth Fashion Pakistan week FPW4 on 21st October at Pearl Continental hotel. Fashion Pakistan promotes both established fashion designers as well as budding design talent in the global market, while supporting and strengthening Pakistan’s vibrant fashion industry. Pakistan’s most influential and fashion-forward designers showcase their fresh collections on day 1 of FPW4.

Mahhen Khan and Frieha Altaf at Eithad lounge FPW4

The show started a bit late but managed to end on time which is commendable. Red carpet area has some seriously cool stuff for the guests like Eithad picture counter where you can get yourself clicked, Ponds reveal lounge to showcase the looks of the evening and cozy Eithad Lounge with some great ambiance and snacks. Eithad airways will be presenting Most inspiring designer of FPW4 award after the fashion week in Morning show at Hum TV like FPW3. Q mobile presented best dressed award to the same old repetitive look of Tapu Javeri in black kurta & jacket :O while second award was for Model Rubya Chauhdary. In my opinion it could go to Huma Adnan or Samra Muslim.

The ramp was just similar to the FPW3 but it has no height. It wasn’t easy to have a good look from third or fourth row. With minimal decorations & only one screen, the show opens with Ace designer Sonya Battla amid huge expectations (which were fulfilled). The luxury prêt wear was colorful, vibrant, lustrous and very much wearable. Fuchsia, red, black and gold colors were dominating while the cut of the clothes was outstanding.

Ayesha Hassan’s collection was bit confusing specially the showstopper dress with that vintage green & golden duappata while Maimoona H’s theme last time was not that impressive with a mix of western & eastern wear in dull colors with hint of gold. Nargis hafeez showcase ethnic and traditional wear with inspiring embroidery but the cut & stitching of the clothes were far from perfection. Almost like a bridal wear turned pret.

DnF, Deepak and Fahad duo was the surprise of the evening. Their menswear collection with funky pants in red, green & yellow colors and stylish shirts stole the show. Iraj was rocking in that checked red pants with black shirt. Zahid Khan of Kuki concept wasn’t that impressive as last time but the collection showed craftsmanship in designs and cuts. The color palette was earthy with shades of grey & yellows the most. Ak, Ishtiaq Afzal Khan’s dessert inspired collection with dark camel color hoodie outfits was monotonous with not much color play except with the touch of pinks.

The show ended with a much anticipated finale by Wardha Saleem. Inspired by folk toys like paper wheel and birdie the collection was titled ‘folk play’. The audience was spellbound with the buildup creative AV shown before the ramp walk. Brightly colorful yet bold and artistic collection has won the audience. Nomi Ansari walked the ramps in Pink while Tapu Javeri walked the ramp in a beautiful Jacket with Mehreen Syed to woe the guests. The designer gets standing ovation for her creativity.

Overall a fashionable evening with minor avoidable errors like delays, a rat in the hall & stretched break. Another commendable thing was representation of Bloggers and Twitterati. Social media passes were especially given to us with front row seating.

The extravaganza of fashion continues for two more days. Stay with us to get updated on latest fashion trends.
