Our Favorite Pieces from Each Designer’s Wedding Collection at PLBW’19

Published

on

Yes, we all know that PFDC Loreal Paris Bridal Week was definitely a grand affair of splendor and undying charm on the ramp but we chose our best pieces from each designer’s collection. No, they are not the show stoppers but these are the dresses that would definitely trend this wedding season; be it a classic pastel hue, dainty embroidery with lustrous details or some gracefully exquisite cuts. We are not at all biased so we have picked up our favorite pieces from each collection showcased by all of our dearest designers who were present this season at PLBW’19.

We all know the hard work put together to make this all happen; but unfortunately, only a few could make it to the list of best pieces from each collection.

Zubia Zainab

 

This cloud grey and Maya Blue attire with floating silhouettes, scintillating crop-top, and puffed sleeves has to be the best of all.

Hussain Rehar

With all the very similar designs, identical patterns and traditional embroidery; this pearl-grey gown heavily embellished with sequenced floral patterns paired along with T-pink and Tawny brown pants has to be our favorite pick from the whole collection.

 

Saira * Shakira

Having very little or no innovation this time; Saira * Shakira duo failed to deliver the best as always. The only attire that instantly grabbed our attention is this long Sea-green fish-tail maxi garnished with vivaciously vibrant floral patterns. To add the celestial charm; the beauty of the dress is enhanced by this chocolate brown long coat embellished with gossamery embroidery.

Nida Azwar

These royal blue sharara pants paired along with this silver choli and intricately embroidered mid-length jacket; Now this is what we call innovation and creativity.

Saira Rizwan

This Silver gown with satiny dainty details, ravishing patterns, and an aura hard to be ignored; Saira Rizwan has definitely spilled some magic on this celestial silver canvas.

Ahmad Sultan

We love this off-shoulder teal green long dress with a slit at the middle paired along with these glinting pants.

Asma Aslam

We love this peach pink choli fully embellished with intricate details cladded in most sophisticated thread-work and adornment of tilla and zardozi. The plain dupatta prettified with a stylistic lace lifts the whole look.

 

Kamiar Rokni

Playing with diversity and a slight touch of feminity, this white two-piece attire is a true bliss by Kamiar Rokni. We love the floral details, ravishing cuts and eccentric patterns making this an absolutely gorgeous piece.

Misha Lakhani

We are totally in awe to see this black saree paired along with a plain black shawl lightly embelished and a printed pallu of the saree. Isn’t this a perfect piece for winter weddings as we can see some specks of velvet in the whole semblance.

 

Sania Maskatiya 

Did you notice this spectacular combination of teal green, peanut brown, and maroon; we love how Sania has made this masterpiece with sheer class while keeping the real grace and sophistication intact. 

Sonia Azhar

We loved this fancy creation on a light grey flowy outfit adorend with vibrantly vivacious floral patterns, quirky layers, and modern silhouettes while keeping the old school fairytale charm; this has to be the best craftsmanship by Sonia Azhar.

Mahgul

An amalgam of Parakeet and Sea Green with a fully embellished undershirt and wide pants along with a sass of plain Parkareet green long jacket tied with a gold belt; that is how creative minds create the best at the ramp. 

Mohsin Naveed Ranjha

We loved his concept and his playlist too. But, was his collection spectacular enough to grab our attention? Well, it surely was but these two outfits that managed to steal our attention were the velvet ones having minimal embroidery and the charm of simplicity and sophistication was very well engraved in these two outfits. The minimal embroidery and fully garnished dupatta bring out the real delight. 

FAS Studio 

One word for this Saree; A total bliss. Smitten in iridescent delicacy along with a beautiful illustration of tradition; FAS Studio has definitely marked the milestone in the fashion realm.  

 

Noreen Neelam 

We love this mystic combination of black and gold. Floral patches at the hem paired along with this bright and gleaming gold inner edge of the saree- Noreen Neelam knows how to play with the colors in the most exotic way. 

NICKIE n NINA 

Now that Shalwar and Gharara’s are in trend; We love this vibrant combination of pink, turquoise, and creamy tissue dupatta. The embroidered short shirts paired along these Shararas and Shalwar are definitely a big trend in the future. 

Fahad Hussayn

Fahad Hussayn’s new collection was all about playful colors, a little bit of drama and a quirky flamboyance but Hareem Farooq’s heavily embroidered lehenga and choli with such a frisky and lively color selection took us all by storm.  

HSY

We love this combination of the beige gown with a digital printed silk Saree. Silk is the new trend so wear it with a long dress having a slit in the middle or pair it with a cropped jacket; the only key to look good is to carry it well.

Speaking at the sumptuous launch, master franchisee and Spa Ceylon Pakistan’s CEO Saeeda Mandviwalla, said, It gives me great pleasure to be able to bring Spa Ceylon to Pakistan because for me it is more than just a brand; it is a brand affiliated with my heritage & identity. Being from Sri Lanka originally, it is with pride that I bring a piece from my birthplace to my current home; and the benefits of this brand will be felt by all age groups of the population.”
