Act 2 was opened by Sublime by Sara at the first day of PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2013, who presented her collection titled ‘NOW, Summer Sublime 2013’, inspired by designer Sara Shahid’s belief in the importance of living for the here and now – a desire to live for the moment. With ‘NOW! Summer Sublime 2013’ the designer invited audiences to step into a world of bright and bold colors, showcasing a heady mix and balance of femininity and funk, the loud with the soft and the neons with the neutrals. Trends included in this collection ranged from neon references, stud embellishments, floral and striped prints to cropped jackets and pants. A brand minimalist by nature, Sara Shahid’s structural emphasis for ‘NOW! Summer Sublime 2013’ remained on tailored cuts and drape, resting on the brands ethos of the power of understated glamour.

[Lahore: April 27 2013] The sixth PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week officially commenced yesterday marking the fourth consistent year of the prêt a porter platform. In keeping with the objective of furthering fashion retail and synergizing high end design, textile manufacturers and buyers, fashion week includes ramp shows by leading retail labels as well as textile houses along with a fully functional, state of the art exhibition area. Day-1 marked the first day of the afternoon Voile Shows with eight designer prét-a-porter shows later in the evening.
[Press Release, Karachi] Pantene Bridal Couture Week 2013 organized by Style360 kicked off to a rollicking start yesterday, on 19th April 2013. The beautifully decorated lounge and red carpet area, complete with fresh flower arrangements set the tone for the evening. The ramp created on straight, modern lines gave a beautifully contemporary look in marked contrast to the more classic sets normally used at PBCW. Playing with layers and lights and images of nature the set was stark white so as not to detract attention from the clothes and gave a surreal look to the venue.
Last designer to showcase on the ramp of first day at Pantene Bridal Couture Week 2012 Lahore eidtion was Kuki Concepts. Zahid Khan is the incredible genius behind Kuki Concepts, a collection of western and eastern wear that is dreamy and lyrical. The fabric used for women’s wear is mostly Chantilly lace and chamois with touches of bling. Kuki Concepts has held 50 showings from Pakistan to the US and England. The show came to a vibrant and impressive end with the rich and heavily worked collection by Kuki Concepts. Highly appreciated by the full house audience present at the venue. Check out complete Kuki Concepts collection from the ramp of PBCW 2012 below.
