Asifa & Nabeel collection for PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2013
“This is our fifth participation in PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week and we are proud to be a part of this as we get the chance to present our thoughts through our clothes on this platform. PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week gives a great opportunity to all the designers from all over Pakistan to show their credibility in fashion industry.”
Asifa & Nabeel’s PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2013 collection is titled ‘Par to Noor’, which translates to ray of light. The collection is entirely inspired by Omar and his work – an artist who with life altering disabilities who has met everyday challenges through his art.
The motifs and colours used in the collection have been developed alongside the artist inspired from his paintings. Fabrics used for this collection include chiffon, cotton, raw silk and organza and includes both womenswear and menswear. Cuts expected are short shirts with bloomers, shalwars and pantaloons as lowers and silhouettes which are straight and tapered using a colour palette based in beige, dark spring green, coffee gold, black, white and pale vanilla/off-white.
The label Asifa & Nabeel has been established for the past 13 years and is well renowned and respected for its Bridal, Prêt-à-porter and Haute Couture lines. In 1998, their innate creative talent and keen sense of design resulted in an exhibition that completely sold out during the set up for display. This proved to be a compelling source of encouragement for the duo and since then, their efforts are manifest in ensembles that spell ethereal elegance and panache. Indeed, their signature style is found in their flamboyant use of diverse fabrics and unique interplay of colours and cuts. The brand currently retails in three of Pakistan’s major cities as well as to an international clientele.
