Sublime by Sara Shahid:
Sara Shahid made a return to runway after almost two years and what a return it was. To put it simply, her collection was every bit ‘sublime’ and ‘subtle’. With a lots of neons, stripes and florals; this collection embraced the Spring/Summer season and made scorching heat something to look forward to.
Akif Mehmood is a man of immense talent, there’s no doubt about that but his collection was dissapointing. Sams gharara and cholis that he has been doing for two years with little practicality and above all, prints and motifs were loud and har on eyes. After seeng minimalistic collections by Sublime and Misha Lakhani, Akif Mehmood was a quite a downer.
As a fan of his talent, one would like to see him step out of his comfort zone and experiment with colours and silhouettes, those appliques and patch works don’t have the same ‘wow’ factor which they had two years ago.
Sania staying true to her signature showed beautiful prints. I always maintain that mixing prints is risky business and nonone has perfected that art as well as Sania Maskatiya has, this collection was just a testimony to that.
I never expect much from Maria B having seen her work previously. Having said that, there were pieces in this collection that really worked like the colour blocked ones specially one with different shades of grey but overall collection lacked a statement.
