Summer is here and that means one thing and one thing only, light clothes. All white outfits this summer will really score a major fashion goal. There are several designers with nicely designed white outfits that are elegant, classy, comfortable and most important of all, fit for the hot, burning summer.

Designers like Feeha Jamshed, Shehla Chatoor, Maheen Khan, Tayyab Bombal, featured some aesthetically designed outfits for summer during the Fashion Pakistan Week 2012.

Tayyab Bombal’s collection during the Pakistan Fashion week featured either a white top or white bottom. One look that would be a definite hit for men is a white short sleeved, casual shirt worn with khaki pants. To top off the look of this apparel, the runway model was fitted with a brown color leather shoe. This look is perfect for almost any kind of outings in the summer.

 

Another look worth trying is a white long sleeve shirt for work when you want to omit the suit. This design featured a smooth, uninterrupted grey colored tie (featured at www.hawtshop.com), and a soft black colour leather dress shoe that results in look that’s young, classy, and modern.

There were many other designers who presented the All White look for women. Among these was the legendary Maheen Khan, who presented a White shirt and Harem with colorful embellishment on the Harem trousers. We believe that’s a great way to add some color in your all white outfit.

Shehla Chatoor, presented an all-white jump suit that was accessorized with golden chains. The overall look is perfect for an evening party or date. The gold touch makes the look very royal and chic.

Feeha Jamshed’s collection had all white evening dresses, which we think would look great paired with some metallic heels.

Hawtshop Recommends:

The all-white trend is perfect for morning wear in summers! Get a pair of white trousers and wear them with white airy Kurtis and add some signature colored neckpiece to complete the look. We’ve seen this look on none other than Hina Rabbani Khar.

Another way to wear an all white is by wearing White tribal print Palazzo pants with short, fitted,  bright/white tops and accessorizing it with a white scarf and signature stone earrings.

If you’re wearing white pants with a white top, we suggest you break the monotony by wearing a block colored belt.

 

 

Pakistan has given birth to countless number of fashion designers in the past, but with the change in time and trend, the age roof of Pakistan’s designer has seems to drop. Evidence of this is easily visible with the young and fast rising fashion designer, Tayyab Bombal. In Pakistan, where female dress designers dominate most of the fashion industry, Bombal has become a glittering hope for the male clothing line. Like most designers, Bombal started with a small collection and continuously with no sign of stopping builds on his collection every year. Publishers and critics adulate him for many reasons that pertain to his fashion identity, taste, and collections.

He began his journey into the competitive world of fashion design with neckties. His line of neckties started in 2007, and has gone on to add more to his male line of fashion necessities and accessories. We are featuring his neckties on the website! His neckties vary aesthetically in design and are guaranteed to give you a professionally flawless appearance.  Each design comes in a variety of colors and patterns with both the pattern and colors complementing each other to generate positive feedback that. His neckties were also featured alongside his other collections during the Fashion Pakistan Week 2012.

During the Fashion Pakistan Week 2012, Bombal showcased lines of apparel for both male and females with the most attention placed on the male collections. His designs were bold, classy and stunning. He somehow managed to combine both the old with the new. It’s this merge of the old and the new that inspired the title of his session at the Fashion Pakistan Week. His showcase was dedicated to the old timer hence the fuse between the old and the new fashion design. The title of his show case was “My Past is My Future”.

The history of the Ajrak goes back to the times of the primitive civilizations of the Indus Valley. A statue of a King Priest found from Moenjodaro shows a shawl draped around his shoulders. That shawl was decorated with a trefoil pattern, scattered with small circles, the interiors of which were filled with a red pigment, very similar to the modern day ajrak print.

Presently Ajrak is liked, worn and considered a perfect tool of tradition for modern outfits. Originally blue and red were the only colors used for Ajrak, however today it’s made in many different color combinations. Many Pakistani designers and textile industries are using Ajrak prints in their collections.

Nishat, one the leading textile industries of Pakistan did a complete Ajrak collection and gave modern outfits the much needed traditional touch.

Nomi Ansari in his formal collection used Ajrak with a lot of gold wire and zardozi work and stitched it into loose silhouettes, making it perfect to be worn at weddings or any other formal gathering.

Ajrak has been used by International brands like Soham Dave, who used it in their eco-friendly collection and made chic dresses out of it. The dresses show how versatile this print is and also show us ways of making this traditional fabric look totally modern.

HAWTSHOP RECOMMENDS

This summer, add some ethnicity to your outfits by incorporating this gorgeous print in your outfits. Get some Kurtis made with panels of Ajrak or use Ajrak fabric for patch work on a plain outfit. We have seen printed trousers trending all over the place, get Ajrak print trousers and pair them with neutral colored shirts and accessories. Ajrak is not just about folk representation any more; it is  a full-blown fashion statement.

Fashion Pakistan, the pioneer fashion platform is back with its third Fashion Week. Where the first two days of the event were mixed, with some extraordinary collections and some mediocre ones, the third day was a fashionista’s dream.

Shamaeel Ansari

The day started off with Shamaeel Ansari’s collection that claimed to exude individuality, fresh energy and was said to be wearable and truly feminine at the same time. The collection was a truly versatile one with flowy silhouettes, trailing hemlines, embellished trousers and the first collection of the event to sport a Shalwar. The fabrics used varied from chiffon, georgettes, net to cotton and the colors used were earthy with some tie dyed combinations. The freshness and feminity was visible in the styling as models were made to wear flower hair accessories.

Iraj rocked a tailed dress with tailored hem and proved there’s no one who rules the ramp quite like her. All in all, it was a splendid collection that achieved what it had claimed to- individuality and fresh energy.

Baani D

The show was followed by a collection from Baani D, a brand described as ‘Hip Traditionalism’ by its founders. The collection was called ‘It’s complicated’, and was said to be more classic than faddish. It included elements from all four provinces and was accessorized by jewellery from Bina Ali. The collection was full of color, Patiala shalwars, Harems, short shirt dresses and geometric print kurtis. It was a very promising debut collection that signified the perfect High street look.

Mughal gone Mod

Ahmed Bham

Bani D was followed by Ahmed Bham, a designer known for close attention to detail whose clothing is associated with Quality and simplicity. His collection was a colorful, Hawaiian inspired summer wear with printed shirts and sleek jackets. We even spotted a Jesus look played by him, with brown printed trouser and a white sleek jacket. The collection with all its color and print was a treat to the eye, however has limited wearability.

The infamous Jesus look

Monsoon

It was great to see British Brands, monsoon and accessorize showcase their collections at the show. Their collections consisted of jumpsuits, flowy dresses, Hats, headbands and silk scarves. The colors used were bright pinks, greens, tangerine orange and a trend of big colorful bags was spotted; which we believe could be a style statement in itself.

Monsoon and Accessorize

With such an inspiring, praiseworthy first half of the show, the expectations for the second half had quadrupled. The second half was marked by big names in the industry namely Maheen Khan, Rizwanullah, Nomi Ansari and the talented new comer Wardah Saleem.

Gulabo

The start to the second half by Maheen Khan’s Gulabo made the entire ambience ethnic with 70’s Lollywood music, bright truck art inspired dresses and crocs. The essence of the brand of love for everything Pakistani was evident. A collection that consisted of jackets with Rickshaws at the back, printed trousers with white shirts and safety helmets as accessories was fun, unique, funky and exactly how street fashion is supposed to be.

Everything Pakistani

 

Wardah Saleem

This splash of color was followed by the extremely talented Wardah Saleem’s collection. It was named the Sindh collection, coming from the legendary home of Marvi. It consisted of vibrant colored cottons prepared with hand block printed techniques. The collection was full of color, tradition in western wear and was accessorized with ghungroo shoes to complete the look. A definite winner for us!

Colour Magic

 

Rizwanullah

The daring and innovative Rizwanullah was next with his much awaited collection. His collection was everything he is known for; sexy, out of the box and daring. It began with exuding a grey and white mood with backless dresses and went on to colorful patchwork dresses that got your eyes glued. He ended it with the perfect jaw dropping long flowy black dress. Rizwanullah definitely brought sexy back with a collection that was worth the wait.

Daring and innovative

 

Nomi Ansari

The final act was done by the fashionably fierce and fun Nomi Ansari known for his vibrant, vivacious and monochromatic dresses. He paid homage to real life stars by making them walk the ramp for him which was supported by a live performance by Ahmed Butt.  A collection that predominantly consisted of block colored flowy shirts, got the energies roaring high and received the much deserved applause for being the perfect end to a perfect day.

Stars walk for Nomi Ansari
