The PBCW is done with its second day.
The day started with Zainab Chottani, with her collection Rang o Raag. The collection takes its inspiration from the Mughal Era’s. The Show started with HSY leading set 1. The set had male models in Black Kurtas, female models in long fairy tailed attires & HSY in black embroidered Sherwani.
The show was followed by more attire having long tailed gowns, Shararas, heavy embroidered uppers & lowers, long Duppattas & Lehangas were creating a complete historic scene.
The next was Erum Khan. Her collection was inspired by the Gulf & Arabian regions. Many colors with many types of prints were shown. Large sequined Plazzos, Velvet Lehangas & Saarees and an embroidered jumpsuit, really attracted me during the show. Hamza Abbassi walked the ramp for Erum. And the ‘Mera Sultan’ music during his walk just electrified the audience.
It was followed by an amazing LED dance performance, which actually made you realize the talent of Pakistan.
Up next was Bina Sultan. The show started with lighter tones like white and by the end moved to vibrant & Blacks. The use of velvet was very intelligently handled i.e. in Duppattas & Pallous. Many Micro Cholis, Backless & off shoulders were shown by the label. I would say Bina played quite a bold game but yes a well played one.
The next show I kinda waited for and it was by Humayun Alamgir. The motto behind his collection was to show case a wearable & men’s preferable Sherwanis. The use of fabrics like Jmawaar, Velvet & Khaddar was done. All accompanied with Khussas & Kulas/Paags. His show spotted live singing segment by Uzair Jaswal, and his show stoppers were Nouman Javed & Shoiab Malik.
Now was the turn of our very own Maria B. Her showcasing was named Kunder. Her show featured live Classical Music by Nayab from Raga Boys. Her collection was portrayed in 3 sets. The 1st one had the theme of White. The works of Mukesh on long Anarkali looked gorgeous. The next part had mixed colors in it with typical bridal looks for Mehndi & Mayoon. The last was Reds & Maroons, the Sherwaani’s were kept simple & similar. In short Maria B played a safe game & designed every outfit keeping market in priority.
