Fashion Pakistan Week Summer 2013 Day 2

The finale of Fashion Pakistan Week (FPW) 5 on 10th April outstripped Day 1 on every level; not only did Day 2 have a more promising line-up, with Shamaeel, SanaSafinaz, Deepak Perwani and Sania Maskatiya showing, some of the remaining 11 (yes, there were THAT many) designers’ presentations displayed creativity and finesse.

Shamaeel

The prize for the show that bowled us over must be given to Shamaeel. With her collection titled Extra-Orient, Shamaeel transported us into a world of powerful lady shoguns exuding femininity and sex appeal.
Sania Maskatiya

A crowd scan at any high-society chai party will show you just how popular Sania’s printed silk kurtas are. Playing on this strength, Sania’s Naqash collection at FPW5 was a saga of digital prints on silk and crepe.

Fashion Pakistan Week Summer 2013 Day 1

Day One of the two-day Fashion Pakistan Week (FPW) 5 on Tuesday evening seemed to drag on for longer than the actual four hours, owing largely to unexciting collections.

Fashion Pakistan Week 5

Gear up for Fashion Pakistan Week 5

Fashion Pakistan Council has announced dates for Fashion Pakistan Week 5 aka FPW5. The event will now be a two day extravaganza, scheduled to take place on the 9th and 10thof April 2013 in Karachi.

It is a bit odd to name the event week when it is just for two days but quality is what matters not quantity. Hope to see some great stuff from participating designers on the ramp. For the first time, there will be Lawn collections on the ramp too (though I have my reservations on it but it shows the power of Lawn)

13 designers will showcase on each day of the event unlike 6-8 in earlier editions of FPW. Assume to allocate half an hour to every collection & the show will be of 6+ hours. Lets see how the decision to shorten the time period of the event and extending the designer lineup turns out.

Fashion Pakistan is collaborating for the first time with 360 labels e store, collections will be uploaded in two hours of launch.
