The 11th edition of PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2018 took place earlier this year and it was just as crazy as any other fashion week. This time, the event took place at the Lahore Expo Centre, where the who’s who of the fashion and entertainment industry was in attendance. It is no doubt that the fashion weeks are all about putting your best fashion foot forward; from celebrities to models, from journalists to socialites, everyone wants to look good for the red carpet. Not only that, with numerous fashion weeks that place in the country, it can be said that PFDC still takes the lead when it comes to showcasing new trends, upcoming designers and following the international fashion weeks pattern. This time at PSFW’18 we witnessed some highs and some lows of the featuring designers. GLOSS takes a run down at the five collections that managed to leave a mark at the runway this time. Text By Saneela Jawad Photograpohy Faisal Farooqui and his team at DragonFly Arjumand Bano - My Head is a Jungle Arjumand’s collection was inspired by the song of the same name by Emma Louise. The botanical prints and colours featured in the collection were designed into breezy ensembles complemented with layers and statement detailing. The ruffles and asymmetrical touches on the silhouettes along with jumpsuits, dresses, jackets and trenches brought the son to life; with the fancy headpieces being an added bonus. Hira Ali Studio - Women Is Future Hira Ali has dedicated this Luxury Prét collection to all the strong and independent women. Keeping true to her style aesthetics, the contemporary designer showcased ensembles with modern silhouettes. With a blue, white, red and beige colour palette, the collection was all about embellished skirts, pants, dresses, statement sleeved shirts accessorised with clutches. The basic theme of the collection was to form a ‘women in fashion’ collective to raise awareness about various gender-related issues. Hira Ali’s intricate work on each piece definitely worked for us.
