Pakistan’s top fashion designers Rizwan Beyg, Zara Shahjahan and Sania Maskatiya were amongst the 86 designers participating to showcase their collection at the prestigious Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) in Palladium Hotel in Mumbai from August 20 to August 24.
The designers marked their LFW debut with a grand show on August 22.
Sania Maskatiya displayed her latest collection ‘Sakura’ which draws from the grace of the cherry blossom the stark romance of the Japanese landscape, tea houses, turtles and treasure chests, all finding their way onto the brand’s design canvas.
The collection showcased an array of bespoke mixed prints and hand embroideries across a diversity of textures in cuts and patterns that are quintessentially Sania Maskatiya.
Rizwan Beyg displayed his truck art inspired collection for which he has previously received international acclaim. Madhubani paintings have especially inspired his focus on flora and fauna in this collection.
“There is more that unites us than what separates us,” says the fashion icon who aims to highlight Pakistan’s similarities with India through his designs.
Zara Shahjahan showcased her luxury prêt with floral collection at the fashion show.
Pakistani designer Faiza Samee was also participating in LFW. However, due to unfortunate visa issues the designer could not make it to Mumbai in time for the show.
