This Saturday, November 17, Pakistani design heavy weights Nickie Nina and Kamiar Rokni participated in one of Lahore’s premier charity fashion events, ‘9 women’ , held by the Lahore Grammar School Defence Campus in honour of the Depilex Smile Again Foundation .
This was a charity fashion event with a difference. The event concept required active participation from an exclusive panel of Lahore ‘s top designers who personally trained students in design, cut, silhouette, colour, manufacture and retail over a period of time. The culmination of this training for Nickie Nina was exemplified at the show in its ‘Motherhood’ segment where Nickie Nina’s student trainees showcased three of their own creations inspired by the glamorous design duo on a ramp modelled by fellow students along with one original Nickie Nina number modelled by Iffat Omar.
Design sensation Kamiar Rokni was called upon to exclusively unveil a selection of his new designs for two faces of Pakistani women, ‘The Artist’ and the ‘Prom Queen’, both of which won awards and were modelled exclusively by his muse, Maliha Naipaul to student, teacher and judges acclaim.
