Fahad Hussayn collection for PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2013
“PFDC’s efforts to industrialize fashion are commendable. PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week allows the entire Fashion fraternity to come together and showcase their work.”
At the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week, Fahad Hussayn showcases his Spring/Summer Collection titled ‘Praxus’. Fahad Hussayn’s inspiration behind the collection comes from his love and appreciation of the people of Pakistan who have faced every adversity with bravery and courage during the last few years. The collection’s name ‘Praxus’ means a mythical inspired imaginary world of warriors, warriors who fight for love. In order to further covey his inspiration the designer has used colors like ivory and shades of metallic gold coupled with limited edition silk prints, custom designed fabrics and flock prints on net. The collection pieces will also feature metallic embroideries along with silhouettes and patchwork used to create desired optical illusions in crystal facets.
