The glam of fashion week started on 23rd, Oct and continued on 24th, Oct as well. FPC is proud to present a three-day fashion extravaganza and serving much to look forward to at Fashion Pakistan Week Winter/Festive. The day 2 evening was took over by 7 designers and literally set the ramp on fire. Prior to the show, the purple carpet was abuzz with celebrities, media, stars and fashionistas clicking up pictures at the photo booth because WHO DOESN’T LIKES PICTURES!
Day 2 was opened by
Stella Jean is a Haitian-Italian and first black Italian designer who lives and works in Rome and is considered to be Giorgio Armani's protégé. Her collection showcase Laboratorio Delle Nazioni was an amalgamation with the local artisans of Chitral, Gilgit and Hunza, who shared and combined Italian design with their centuries-old tradition. The collection had hand-embroidery on over 300 meters of fabric mostly typical floral motifs in chain stitch.
Forty-six women, under the guidance of Karishma Ali made the pieces for Jean’s collection, 19 of which transformed needling into embroidery with their own hands. The Truck Art design in the collection as well as the hand painted brogues were made by Truck artists of Lahore, yet another transition of culture. Different color outfits with Chitrali motifs and intricate embroidery were seen on the ramp. Karishma Ali walked out with Stella Jean for the final stop!

As the theme was Style Mara Tou Darna Kya, all of the celebrity models made an awestruck entry with some unreal moves. Following the ethos of, ‘these men shall be who they want to be’, the ensembles echoed the message behind his showcase. It was very general observation from his collection that the fashion is evolved from ROYALS. He used bold, flamboyant, royal and elite designs to showcase his unique pieces. The collection featured long coats, long boots, wool, velvet and even fur which for so many reasons is now considered as a threat to industry.
Shehzad sheikh opened his show while Asad Siddiqui was chosen as a poppin’ showstopper.
Eco-friendly environment and sustainable fashion is taking internet by storm and does get more value! The show was stopped by such an amazing designer who not only doomed the ramp but conveyed a message of repeating and recycling!
Something old something new something borrowed something not so blue was Maheen’s main motto behind her showcase. The collection she introduced was of up cycled samples on the runway from her archives, some old, some new, and some borrowed from their new collaborations with Indoi and Sundus Talpur who tends to be a sculptor and jeweler.
