Saiqa Raheem – Bank Alfalah Rising Talent Show at PSFW16
Bank Alfalah further enhanced their association with the PFDC through the Bank Alfalah Rising Talent showcase comprising of 4 emerging designers. Indeed, Bank Alfalah’s patronage of the PFDC has grown from being a permanent banking partner to now working with the PFDC to nurture an entire generation of Pakistan’s emerging design talent, through this showcase.
Saiqa Raheem showcased its ‘Yurt’s Manifestation’ collection at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week’s Bank Alfalah Rising Talent segment. The collection takes its inspiration from Yurts picked out from Kara-Kalpak’s way of life. The collection highlights the transition and stark contrast between the two ways a yurt is viewed as external side of the yurt is extremely plain whereas the interior is exceptionally conventional due to the usage of robs and the interweave method. The base idea was to portray the ability of the yurts to manipulate their viewer. The exaggeration of silhouettes and textures from the traditional influence with overlapping, turning and interlocking are the main elements which have been made to form texture on the surface. These surfaces were used in the garments with the long belts. The color palette revolved around grey, maroon and royal blue as surface colors while green was used as an accent color.
