fpw 2017

For the past 10 years, Fashion  Pakistan Week (FPW) has been upholding the responsibility of promoting and nurturing the country’s prominent designers and providing them with a platform that will enable them to grow. Traditionally, the event was a three-day show but this time around, FPW 2017 has been planned to be a 2 day fashion extravaganza.

Day 1 of FPW 2017  featured some of the most illustrious designers showcasing their spring collection.

The cast and crew of ‘Mehrunisa We Lub You’ stole the show in Urdu1 segment wearing Zaheer Abbas

The showstoppers of the night  for Zaheer Abbas were the stars of ‘Mehrunnisa We Lub You’ featuring Yasir Nawaz Baloch, Nida Yasir, Javed Sheikh, Danish Taimoor and Sana Javed in the segment by Zaheer Abbas.

Keeping it basic, the leading ladies were in plain sheer sarees while the men were dressed in a formal desi attire. The color scheme matched the winter theme, ranging from black, midnight blue and a splash of white.

FNKASIA by Huma Adnan was next in line to feature her collection titled ‘Avian’

The colour palette for this collection consisted of off-whites, fawns and blues. Huma was quoted to say that she was inspired by winged and spirited animals, “Just like the bird’s ability to spread wings and fly is my motivation behind taking risks with cuts and patterns.” From mix and match patterns, silk thread embroidered motifs of birds with bold cuts and patterns were seen in the collection.
