Fierce Brides And A Gulabi Gang: Here's Everything You Missed On The First Day Of FPW18

By Arslan Athar | 29 Sep, 2018

Fashion Pakistan Week has become a major fashion event in the yearly schedule of all that is ‘fashion’ in Pakistan. The show usually happens twice a year, once showcasing looks for the spring and summer season and the other showcasing looks for the winter season. The first day of Fashion Week really set the bar high as designers like Tena Durrani, Zainab Chottani and HSY graced the ramp with their collections for the winter season.


Tena Durrani made quite the impression with her bridal collection 


She muted bright reds, purples, and greens with touches of beige and white created a seamless bridal look 


Lajwanti showed a pastel based collection; a trend that is slowly becoming hot for this season 


Muted colors and all, the collection left quite an impact


Huma Adnan paid homage to the city of Dehradun, thereby giving her collection a truly Punjabi touch and flair 

…While keeping with big prints and motifs, Huma kept up the trend of lighter colors


Aamna Aqeel’s collection was like no other at Fashion Pakistan Week


She mostly stuck to black and gold designs, however, she did give a nod to the ever classic, bridal red


Zainab Chottani’s collection was called ‘Khwaab’ and well, it truly did look dream-like


Her collection was a mix of classic bridals and some modern trends too 


The Pink Tree Company paid ode to ‘The Gulabi Gang’ and the color pink

The aim of their collection was to prove that pink isn’t a meek color, rather it is bold, fierce and powerful.

Gulabi Gang "The colour pink has been associated with the gentle, the soft and the feminine. It was the 'girly' colour. But then along came breed of evolved people who rescued the colour from this stereotype and turned it into the colour of empowerment, strength and fearlessness."–Nishtha Jain. The genesis of Gulabi is illuminating – it comes into being when red is blended with white, taking qualities from both. Pink is the colour of awareness, support, survival, compassion – in short, it signifies a life worth living. So, yes, pink is feminine because feminity is about strength, resilience, compassion, care, humour, romance, creation, love, softness and empowerment. Let's believe in Pink, as Audrey Hapburn said. Let's celebrate the Gulabi culture and the romance and sheer defiance that it was born out of. The PinkTree presents Gulabi Gang, an ode to two great women ie Sampat Pal, the stormy force behind Gulabi Gang and Nishtha, the fabulous filmmaker who introduced the world to this symbol of courage, defiance, strength, and of course their inner feminine beauty through the variant pink hues. With Pink as running theme, The PinkTree employs various shades of the colour to paint a picture of defiance, independence and courage with gold embellishments highlighting the precious, unique strength that is signature to women. #PinkTree #FPW18 #FPW #FPWSS18 #BridalWear #WeddingWear #FestiveWear Jewellery : Hira and Sheherbano Javeri from @alijaverijewelers Ali Javeri Jewelers Stylist: @shakethingsupbyamal Amal Fatima Qadri Hair & Makeup: @nabila_salon #desi #desifashion #desidesigner #desiwedding #pakistanifashion #pakistaniwedding #londonfashion #newyorkfashion #parisfashion #torontofashion

And they achieved that effect, ever so flawlessly 


HSY ended the first day of Fashion Pakistan Week with quite the bang 


His collection was very ‘new generation’ and ‘in charge’ 

Suits and gowns were the keys to the collection


The trends that clearly made it through the first day were clear; lighter colors, bold prints and traditional kaam reigned supreme. Also, it seems like the whole long shirts coming back situation was only in Lahore, but this is still the first day, so let’s see if some past trends are brought back or not.
