This season marks the fourteenth fashion week originated by PFDC with 8 weeks of prêt-à-porter and 5 of bridal fashion, and expresses PFDC’s commitment sustainability and discipline within the business of fashion and the facilitation of Pakistan’s retail industry. Day-1 of the most waited fashion week marked the first day of the prét-a-porter shows featuring Sana Safinaz, Feeha Jamshed, MUSE, the Bank Alfalah Rising Talent Show, and Sublime by Sara and Maria.B.
Saiqa Raheem showcased its ‘Yurt’s Manifestation’ collection at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week’s Bank Alfalah Rising Talent segment. The collection takes its inspiration from Yurts picked out from Kara-Kalpak's way of life and highlights the transition and stark contrast between the two ways a yurt is viewed as external side of the yurt is extremely plain whereas the interior is exceptionally conventional due to the usage of robs and the interweave method. The exaggeration of silhouettes and textures from the traditional influence with overlapping, turning and interlocking are the main elements which have been made to form texture on the surface. These surfaces were used in the garments with the long belts. The color palette revolved around grey, maroon and royal blue as surface colors while green was used as an accent color.
