PFDC L'oreal Paris Bridal Couture Week 2012

Here are pictures of some of our favorites from this year’s PFDC L’oreal Paris Bridal Couture Week.

HSY: ‘City of Gardens’ collection was inspired from the beauty of the city of Lahore. A city that is rich in culture everywhere. HSY’s collection ranged of fabrics like chiffons, pure raw silks, and organzas. Bold colors have become a staple to HSY’s collections.

Layla Chatoor: Her debut collection called ‘The Queens of Jewels’ inspired by a bride on her wedding day. Chatoor’s collection was very feminine and royal.

Nida Azwer: ‘The Chibhali Collection’ was inspired by the unique Kashmiri heritage and culture. Azwer used traditional Kashmiri styles such as angrakhas paired with long jackets, dazzled with kamdani embroidery.

Nickie Nina: ‘Baroque’ collection was inspired by the 17th century European vintage style. Nickie Nina used a mix of chiffon, jamawar, and velvet to create a luxurious look.

Misha Lakhani: ‘A colonial transgression’ was inspired by the Taj Mahal’s inlay work and the 17th century embroidery styles. Lakhani used a rich color pallette which includes ivory, olive, blush tones, and red.

Asifa & Nabeel: ‘Tribute to Jahan Ara Begum’ was inspired by the eldest daughter of Shah Jehan and Empress Mumtaz Mehal. She was a well-known painter, writer, engineer, and artist who always wore rubies, diamonds, and sapphires. Asifa & Nabeel also showcased their men’s collection which was inspired by the Mughal Royalty.
