Fashion Shows: The Veet-sponsored fashion show

fashionpkThe Veet-sponsored fashion show that took place recently showcased the spring/summer collections by Hasan Shehryar Yasin, Khaadi Khas, Maheen Khan and Nomi Ansari.

Omar Rahim opened the show by a dance sequence choreographed by him on the lifecycle of a butterfly. The somewhat innovative dance sequences with the dancers dressed in simple white showed the struggle to break free from the cocoon and finally coming into its own as a butterfly. The dancers displayed graceful flexibility and each was handpicked from various dance troupes.

Nomi Ansari is one designer who wants to have fun on the catwalk. His models walked down the ramp sporting large colourful flowers in the hair. The collection inspired by the ''circle of life'' and anything new, fresh and happening in nature, carried his signature love for colours and more than enough bling embroidered on the clothes to blind the onlookers. Far from being revolutionary, it seemed to cater directly to the bridal market: the brides as well as the wedding attendees.

Hasan Shehryar Yashin (HSY)'s resort collection was inspired by the Mediterranean Sea. An amalgamation of blue, turquoise, bottle-green, deep purple among other colours, this collection was a visible growth of his design sense from his last two which previously showcased his love for length and volume. In this collection too the volume was very much there, but as opposed to the current trend of keeping longer lengths, his models opened the show in ensembles that ended above the knee.

fashionpkKhaadi Khas dominated the evening with his Turkish-inspired collection. Using Khaadi as the main fabric (no surprises here) his collection was an amalgamation of a lot of volume, with colourful embroidery over white. There were other delightfully voluminous dresses in simple, bold colours which spanned from deep red, pink and orange.His collection had ankle-length large kaftans and billowing straight white-on-white embroidered pants. The inspiration was definitely visible as was his evolution from his last collection that he showed at the Pakistan Fashion Design Council fashion event last year. The deep red, pink, orange single-toned embroidered-upon dresses seemed to be an extension of a black dress upon which there was bold red-embroidery shown at the PFDC event, which had then been modeled by Gia Ali.

Maheen Khan's collection was a simple white one with tones of pearl-grey and beige seeping through, but barely so. The models sported beaded necklaces and scarves, with short waist-length shirts worn over impeccably cut shalwars that were meant to be shown as opposed to be hidden under the shirt. Iraj closed the collection with a playful reenactment of a woman trying to have fun while walking down the ramp and interacting with those around her. The entire collection and the mood it was presented in had a very classic 1920s feel to it.

Without a doubt, where Maheen closed the show at a very elegant note, and where Nomi displayed a collection that was very much himself, HSY managed to breathe new air into his own style of designing a collection (at least in the first half) and one hopes that this air of innovation continues in his future work as well. At the end of it all, however, it was Shamoon's designs for Khaadi Khas that stole the night with his Turkish dreams. From the time of its launch to a little more than a year now, Khaadi Khas may have finally arrived.
