Act one of Day 3 started with a bang with an eye-catching and funky collection by Tapulicious featuring Kamiar Rokni, HSY and Mohsin Ali. The ensembles were inspired by colourful and repetitive patterns of traditional ‘shamiana’ tents.
The prints and bags were based on silk paintings and artistry of a famous Japanese artist, and Tapu’s aunt, Mariam Syedullah. Each print contained hundreds of miniscule photographs of Karachi that were put into artistic stitch by House of Kamiar Rokni. The second collection of Tapu featured Mondrian-style colour blocking that was crafted into garments by the very talented Mohsin Ali. The third and final selection was inspired by current trends with a monochromatic look at the animal world. Tapu used zebra and leopard prints layered alongside chevron stripes and kaleidoscopic colour creating a fresh look at an old classic.
