Six Summer Trends to be Continued in Winter

Published

on

When we say “history repeats itself”, we count fashion as well. We choose the styles we wish to wear and the trends we want to follow. 

What was in, what was out, what caught attention, what did not, what was favourite, what was not? We all need to catch up on the answers. Some styles are seasonal and some are not. Most of the fashion trends stay for a little while and then change but there is plethora of summer fashion trends that made their way to the winter season this year. Here are our top picks.

Muddled Prints

No matter how much of sequenced fabricwe stocked in our closet, muddled-abstract patterns came in and changed the print game instantly. Muddled prints are non-representational art style of 20th century. You can be as creative as you want with any geometric, stripped or checked print paired with plain fabrics. From floral artwork to abstract lines, from shirts to shawls, they have definitely made their way into winter fashion as well. 

Side buttons

Side buttons have always been trending onmini tops, long kurtis or trousers. Since each fashion designer is looking out for creative and fancy designs, this particular trend has brought all the eastern brands together. We have witnessed some really funky side button angrakha frocks at East Breakout which nobody would want to miss even in winter collection. Side buttons can also be adorned with beads, dori, thread embroidery or stones.

Mono-chrome prints

Monochromes are never season based. You can go mono tone or two-tone anytime with any clothe and with any trend. One colour or two shades when amalgamated get all the elegance and class rolled out of them for any kind of an event, be it formal or casual. A series of identical patterns on the fabric in black and white is relished both in eastern as well as western attire.

Bell sleeves

Bell sleeves are the easiest way to add a little drama to your outfit making it easy and super-wearable. This trend was not just a summer thing; you are going to see a lot more versions of these sleeves in winter too. This does not end here. As, you all know, how swiftly, boot cuts and bell bottoms have conquered the pants’ world. Bell sleeves add movement, femininity and whimsy to our clothes. These trends are not leaving us here but will emerge out in a variety of other shapes such as cuff and trumpets and petal sleeves.

Cognate Embroidery

One shade embroidery on another is so not groovy anymore. The real sass with a unique idea is brought by Breakout in their new eastern collection with an identical thread work giving a very warm, composed and a trendy look. If you appreciate the minimal embroidery and like to dress up subtle, this trend is definitely going to be your top choice in the coming winter. These are the very few of so many fashion statements that we don’t want to leave even in the fall\winter. We hope to see all these trends in a more voguish and attractive way.

On our radar: Everthine by Samar Abid

Published

on

Samar Abid has reached strides in just a few months of establishing her couture house – Everthine. Her vision extends beyond just being a fashion designer, she foresees herself as an entrepreneur aiming to reach a global market with quality work. She has showcased her collection at the Bridal Couture Week 2018 and also is the receipt of the Pantene Rising Star Award. Check out our conversation with her:

What inspired you to enter the fashion world and run a couture brand?

Well, I come from a very academic background. My brother is the youngest PhD in Computer Sciences in the world and I went to visit him. There is did a few courses from the London School of Fashion and that is when things really began to turn, I realized this was a very creative field! My main focus was on entrepreneurship, basically i’d call myself and entrepreneur and Fashion is the field I chose for myself. It is all about establishing the brand and you bring it to the masses, you bring it to the jury and get the technical people to evaluate how capable you are. Khadija Shah is definitely somebody who has inspired i’d say. She is a very head over heels workaholic type of person and she is low key at the very same time. She isn’t decked up in Elan all the time and that is what I admire. I believe your work should reflect through the masses.

Tell me a little about your creative process? The inspiration behind individual pieces?

To start with the design philosophy, when we started Everthine, you see it’s a conference of culture nowadays globally. East and West is coming together so we are trying to bring you the best of both worlds together. We are sticking to the essence of the sub-continent artisans in our embellishments and we incorporate that into our modern techniques. We definitely take inspiration from international silhouettes and create heirloom pieces with a lot of detail and imagery. Using metallic threads and intricate embroidery on these cuts, we are creating elegant and breathable pieces.

Where do you see this brand in the next few years?

We are trying to touch each and every base without restricting ourselves. We did Bridal Couture Week and now we are rigorously moving forward towards our Spring/Summer collections. Then we plan to exhibit in Lahore, Faisalabad and Multan. We find that there is a lot of potential within the country as well as abroad after going to Dubai with Boulevard One. People come to use from all over for elegant pieces and meticulous detail and we take a lot of pride in that, so within a year InshAllah we will be going International.

What is the most raw and honest piece of advice would you give to the youngsters trying to make it in the Fashion field right now?

Be professional! Be honest to your work, not just clients, but we creative and genuine with your work without copying and replicating off others. Originality is key!

What do you think needs to change in the Pakistani Fashion Industry?

The rat race maybe. If somebody introduces a trend then all the thousands of “so called” design house will come up with a hundred copies. Instead of madly following it and releasing how ethically wrong it is they should have some humility. The more you cater to humility, the more you are professional.
