Fahad Hussayn’s PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week 2014 collection is titled “Putlighar”.A visual comment on socio-political anthropology, hierarchies and the rise and fall of love lost to war, Fahad Hussayn’s bridal collection features a wide spectrum of print museum couture editions hand embroidered with 3D cutouts, vintage tones and amalgamation of traditional craft with new age techniques and cuts to make beautiful, timeless and elegant pieces. Traditional zari work, 3D embellishment, threadwork and vintage tone of tilla on printed bases have been used. With a colour palette inspired by Cholistan and Thatta dolls, it depicts the royalty ruins and leftovers throughout the region. This collection also portrays a bit of Cholistan, offers some glimpses into colonialism and the Ranjit Singh era which comes with the signature Fahad Hussayn trousseau and bridal looks for both men and women with a perfect blend of aristocratic grandeur and avant-garde glamour.
