Pakistan’s leading fashion design house Sania Maskatiya returned to the prestigious New York Fashion Week (NYFW) platform with its Fall/Winter 2019. The collection was part of the Council of Aspiring American Fashion Designers’ (CAAFD) long running tradition of introducing emerging designer showcases.
Maskatiya is the first Pakistani designer and design house to showcase officially at the NYFW platform, having debuted last year at NYFW S/S19 with its dedicated western wear line – Sania Studio.
Maskatiya showcased her F/W 2019 luxe evening wear collection on Tuesday. The collection was received with raving audience reviews. The energy and elegance of this landmark collection is encompassed through luxe fabrics in metallic shades and chic silhouettes.
Embodying elements both heritage and nouveau, this collection evokes a sublime subtlety featuring the signature Maskatiya intricate embellishments and fusion silhouettes.
In attendance at the show was Pakistan’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations in NYC Maleeha Lodhi among other New York based socialites and personalities.
