The vivid and dull


Telenor Bridal Couture Week (TBCW) offered a variety of bridal collections; the two days could be viewed as a showdown between the old and the new. Whereas the designs of growing designers outpaced fashion heavy-duty on the second day, experienced designers stole the attention as the show concluded on day three.

At the second day designer, Anees Malik showed with whites and compared them with neons, a peril that paid off. He compared monotonous gold banarsis lehengas and dupattas with simple neon cholis, and crunchy white ones with vivid banarsis cholis. Malik implicit what factors to work on whereas emphasizes on some, that all made his compilation outstanding. It was also stated that the concluding of the dresses was not as much as ideal with unraveled ends of dupattas. But he should be highly praised for offering a to some extent off-beat aesthetic to a stage that is fundamentally mass-centric.

Hina Butt made an effort to test with cuts, putting forth the off-shoulder kameez and jacket with crop top drifts, but the fineness of the biddings brought them a little bit useful and inappropriate for wedding dresses. There were a few striking parts in the compilation, for example, the coated net and chiffon lehenga grouped by her showstopper Uzma Khan and the yellow divides characterizing a crop shirt and pants. This was bang on fashion drift with the co-words craze getting the globe by storm and would appear smashing at December marriages.

The Rani Emaan from Islamabad astonished a lot of when she set out one of the best compilations of the night. The adornments were complicated and full and the dresses smoothly changed from pastels to dark colors to ivory. While she set out trousseau in addition to bridals, Emaan unluckily broke no position in the area where her specialty put. She did, though, provide a flavor of how traditional desi dress could be created fashionable.
