Pantene Bridal Couture Week 2013 Finale

April 26, 2013 Hina Safdar 1

There was the expected high drama on the ramp when the curtains came down Pantene Bridal Couture Week 2013 Day 3. With the good, the bad and the ugly, the show kept us hooked till the very end. Here’s the lowdown:

Sana Abbas
The opening pieces of this designer’s collection showcased bridals themed on a pastel palette. With soft hues like beige, baby pink, light blue and white, Sana Abbas’s collection was designed for a graceful bride. The dresses with paisley motifs had a touch of regality and looked majestic on the ramp.

Nadya Mistry
When will this eyesore of a mystery be solved? The designer failed to impress on every levels. With the right recipe for a ramp disaster in hand, Mistry showcased net chooridars, glittery mermaid-inspired lehengas and off-shoulder cholis full of coin-sized sequins. While we laud her for producing well-stitched albeit complicated pieces, we seriously wonder who will ever wear them.
