Day 2 of the Telenor Bridal Couture Week 2015 (TBCW 2015) was held on Saturday, June 6, 2015. After attending the Day 1, I was more excited to see what Day 2 has to offer.
The second day started off with the same fervor and enthusiasm to support the fashion industry as it did on the first.
Designers lined up for Day 2 of the TBCW 2015 were:
With her collection “Through the Vintage Rose Garden”, Tabbassum Mughal introduced an interesting mixture of minimal floral embellishments and a kaleidoscopic palette. With her designs that are unique, decent and easy-to-carry, Mughal definitely created a great impact on the audience.
House of Arsalan Iqbal
House of Arsalan Iqbal’s “Indoi” mesmerized the spectators with his bold and subtle outfits adorned with embellishments that reminded me of the rich culture of Maharajas. The collection offered a huge variety of heavily embroidered shirts, shalwaars, stoles and khussas that are mandatory to complete off the traditional look. The designer certainly outshone among all his companions showcasing the groom’s collection.
“Bandishis” was a wonderful amalgamation of pastel colors, intricate embroidery and distinguished designs. Banishis had cholis, lehengas, qameez shalwars and maxis. Khan’s inspiration for this collection came from courageous Pakistani women who shine in their personal and professional life despite facing several challenges. TV actress Sanam Jung walked the ramp for her.
Telenor Karo Mumkin Featuring Sarah Gandapur
It was Gandapr’s debut at the Telenor Bridal Couture Week. Her collection “The Revival of Vintage” was all about different styles of saris. She kept her saris separated from the traditional Indian style by giving it a Pakistani touch with bold gota and wearable headgears. Famous singer Komal Rizvi and dance master Hasan Rizvi were the showstoppers for this newly found talent.
Umsha by Uzma Baber
If there is one thing that can define Umsha by Uzma Baber’s “Floral Goddess” it is a ‘perfect mixture of the traditional and contemporary fashion’. She stylistically used tilla on the borders of lehenga and gharara to do elaborate detailing and paired them up with heavily embroidered cholis. Film actor Moammar Rana and his wife walked the ramp for her.
Mansoor Akram’s Amina Yasmeen came back with a bang with their revived bridal collection. Followed by a consistent but selected color palette, the designer flawlessly pulled together an emblem of a focused timeless and traditional collection.
Naz’s target market was people who still prefer wearing traditional bridal outfits on their wedding with bold colors and heavy embroidery. She showcased a mixture of long shirts, cholis, maxis and lehengas.
After HSY, Chottani was the second major reason I went to the TBCW 2015. Her glowing and shiny collection “Jannat” was beyond elegant. The refined intricate detail, flawless modern cuts and a pleasant combination of silver and red made the audience go gaga over her outfits. Her bewitching long shits, lehengas and cholis were the highlight of the sophisticated collection. Singer Farhan Saeed and TV & film actress Urwa Hocane were the showstoppers for Chottani.
This is all from the Day 2. The Telenor Bridal Couture Week 2015 definitely lived up to its expectations and wowed the audience with its unique and impressive collections. Looking forward to the next season!
