Adnan Perdesy

Fashion designer Adnan Perdesy has enthralled fashionistas in a very short span of time with his creative imagination, and he surely knows how to transform that imagination into beautiful outfits.

After his graduation from Asian Institute of Fashion Design in 2002, Adnan joined his family business of textile and garments. 

According to Adnan Pardesy, he excels more for being a technically sound designer than a creative hand who is giving his audience a taste of true, experimental and edgy fashion. “I would rather be called an expert at my techniques that I have used in my collections, mainly to do with fabric and stitching like honeycombing, pleating, etc than to be termed a creative designer,”

Fashion designer, Adnan Pardesy took a solo flight as a fashion designer in 2006 when he parted ways with his father’s garment set up. He started with taking small orders. He produced for Maheen Khan’s street wear label ‘Gulabo’. He is also known to be close associate of Rizwan Beyg, whom he calls his mentor.

His designs revolve around his philosophy that is ‘simplicity’ but yet there is so much complication of design coming from the overlapping techniques that make him stand out in the crowd.

He also participated in Karachi Fashion Week and put the ramp on fire with his ultra feminine and classy collection.

Amina Yasmeen

I don’t call myself a full-fledged designer as yet. But what I do is appreciated by my clients.” Mansoor commented that designer shirts should have vivid embroidery, style, grace and a concept unique to that particular designer. Mansoor Khan works under the designer label "Amina Yasmeen". Only around for a couple of years, Mansoor already has a reputation for making clothes that are out of this world. Talking to him, one is encouraged that the upcoming talents are experts in their field. Many have raved about Mansoor’s designs, saying his work tends to break traditional designing values.

At Amina Yasmin, another difference is of jamawar cloth, used mainly for ghararas. “There is a jamawar cloth that costs Rs 70 per yard and then there is a jamawar cloth that costs Rs 700 per yard. So you see where designs and cuts matter, cloths also have a say on the pricing of an individual shirt.”

Mansoor is getting ready for more fashion courses. Apparently he has his sights fixed on a foreign university that will enhance his qualities in the fashion field.

Amir Adnan

Despite it being a textile hub, fashion, style and glamour are not labels commonly associated with the industrial Punjab city of Faisalabad. Amir Adnan took up the challenge to introduce all these aspects of modern high street style to the textile capital of Pakistan. In doing so, Amir Adnan along with his team of organizers took Faisalabad by storm. Advertising was prominent in all the major newspapers and there were hoardings all over the city. The fashion show was Aamir Adnan and Huma Aamir Adnan's first trip to the city where they presented their exquisite collection of casuals, semi-formals and formal wear for both men and women.

Aamir Adnan yet is looking beyond the usual horizons and planning to open an outlet in every possible prospective market of fashion. Aamir Adnan organised a fashion show in Pakistan with special help from old friends and colleagues like Khawar Riaz (KR CREW) and Ather Hafiz, the men's wear designer at Libas. Khawar Riaz provided the models and was in charge of their grooming and make-up.

The collection that was presented on the stage carried a wide range of designs and latest styles of formal shalwar kameez and semi-formal salwar kameez for both genders. The men's collection portrayed simple colours like black, blues, greens and browns with the elegance of embroidery on kurta and sherwanis that is associated with all Amir Adnan products. The eastern wedding wear was the most well received. The second segment of groomswear capsuled the glory and majesty of our traditions. The sherwanees were elegantly embroidered using semi-precious stones and delicate hand embroidery that made every model look like a member of the royal courtyard of the Maharajas and Emperors. Pure silk Jamewar turbans provided the picture perfect glory of the past represented as today's fashion statement.

Females were also dressed to create an awareness of fashion in Pakistan. Huma Adnan's beautiful collection was displayed on the ramp like a soft spring breeze blowing in the heat of the scorching summer sun. Huma Adnan's collection consisted of beautiful and detailed cuts that are the perfect amalgamation of western styles with an eastern touch for the modern woman of not just Pakistan but the world. The designer plans to launch this fusion line in the USA very soon. Huma Adnan stylized collection of bridals matched the sartorial image of their male counterparts. Presenting brides and grooms together allowed the designers to represent traditions with style.

Ammar Belal

ABCD by Ammar Belal Men's T-Shirts, Jeans, Casual Wear, Street Wear

From the kings and Queens of Pakistan’s fashion realm to yet another charming prince. At first, one might argue that there is only a slight design factor incorporated in each garment that Ammar Belal’s label ABCD produces. While most of the bigger and established brands are playing safe these days by catering to their specific target audience, ABCD has the advantage of experimenting on casual wear while being led by an equally innovative and classy designer. This is what gives ABCD a cutting edge. Also while every other designer is experimenting with one or more aspect of bridal wear, ABCD is strictly street wear couture and that’s that. Lately, his famous customized jeans by the brand name of AS JEANS have become a raging fad in the city.

Bunto Kazmi

Bunto Kazmi - Pakistani Designer

There is a quiet dignity in the Kazmi household. On entering the residence/showroom, one feels transported to a modern Mughal atmosphere with the family members floating from one room to another with some higher purpose and the attendants going about official and personal work at the same time. Today everyone refers to Oriental Fashions as Mrs. Kazmi\'s bridal wear without their trying – it is rare to see the design house in shoots or advertised in any form. It is to their credit that one of the oldest fashion houses has achieved its fame by word of mouth and reputation rather than being backed by fashion degrees and marketing strategies.

One can’t help but feel as if Bunto has stepped out of the sets of Devdas into the real life hustle and bustle of modern day professions - but she is not sandwiched here. If anything she is the fantasy part of the creations, which bridge the practical with the ideal. This has resulted in a design house that boasts creations at international levels and has been exhibited in museums globally. More importantly, it defines our cultural identity and puts Pakistani couture on the map because of the commitment of the Kazmi institution. Day professions - but she is not sandwiched here.

Élan is a French word and is synonymous with style, confidence and elegance. The label Élan has come a long way since it started and is now considered one of the most sought after brands in Pakistan. By making it’s collections available in all major cities at exclusive boutiques, such as Rehanna Saigol’s ‘The Shop’ in Karachi, Mélange in Islamabad and The PFDC boulevard 10-Q in Lahore, Élan has become a force to reckon with in the fashion Industry. Furthermore, Élan’s is opening its flagship store at the Mall of Lahore and also launching its prêt wear at Labels, one of the most popular multi- brand clothing stores on Zamzama Boulevard Karachi. 

Élan design philosophy stands for exactly what the word means. Clothes are supremely elegant and though there is versatility in each collection the underlying aesthetic of restrained glamour and pizzazz is never compromised. Élan’s outfits can be traditional or modern, heavily worked or lightly embellished but they are always easy on the eye, an attribute lacking in the work of most local designers.

Élan’s client base has rapidly expanded in the last two years; it has clients not only within Pakistan but also abroad especially in the US and the UK. The reason for the brands success, “On time deliveries, quality control and most importantly I will never design anything I will not wear myself” says Khadijah Shah.

Faiza Sami

Faiza Sami Pakistani Designer

Faiza Sami believes Pakistani embroidery has interesting influences that range from the Chinese to the Turkish Enlarge. From designing jodas for former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s wedding; to being commissioned by the esteemed Victoria Albert Museum, UK; to reviving the heritage of the stitches of Sindh; Pakistani designer Faiza Samee has clearly been there and certainly done it all. Born with an artistic bent of mind, Faiza Sami was one of the frontrunners of the fashion industry in Karachi at a time when there was no fashion school 25 years back. “I got into designing by accident. Having lost my mother at an early age, I had to shop for the trousseau at my brother’s marriage. To my dismay, I discovered that ancient embroidery techniques were languishing due to lack of patronage. My journey into the fashion world began by sourcing these vintage fabrics and trying to keep our heritage alive,” recalls Faiza Sami.

Showing at Bridal Asia 2003 for the second time, where she stole the limelight from designer Ritu Kumar on Thursday at Uppal’s Orchid, Samee believes Pakistani embroidery has several influences that range from Chinese to Turkish. “Karachi is more like Delhi. It is a bit conservative unlike what I saw in Mumbai. But my forte is formal and trousseau wear that focuses on making bridal wear really, really interesting,” Faiza Samee elaborates. Navratan, her collection, is inspired by jewelled hues such as emerald, garnet, ruby, jade and coral. “We never had the kurti revolution that was seen here, probably because most girls still prefer the fitted silhouette. This is the back to the ’70s look that had body-hugging kurtas teamed up with churidars, now that straight pants are out of fashion,” says Faiza Samee. Being one of the pillars of the fashion industry back home in Pakistan, she wants a fashion week there on the lines of India.

However, Faiza Sami does admit that unlike India, Pakistani designers are quite laid-back and very disorganised. “Someone has to take the lead somewhere and make an effort to put it all together. I guess it will take time but we need to get it right in the first place,” says Faiza Sami.

Hassan Shehryar Yasin

Hassan Shehryar Yasin, HSY - Pakistani Designer

While Hassan Shehryar Yasin's (HSY) choreography always has an upbeat pace, not for him leisurely sashaying on the catwalk by the models. Never has this been more evident than at his recent showing of the DuPont Lycra 'Has It' collection designed by Hasan Shehryar Yaseen. And little wonder, with over 70 outfits shown by 30 models, fast and snappy remained the mood for the show - apt, for a western wear collection featuring togs for both the male and female wardrobe. No gender discrimination here, equal numbers of outfits for both were shown.

Hasan Shehriar Yaseen promoting fabrics with Lycra blend, the 'Has It' campaign's theme being, 'You either have it or you don't' brings the product to a more personal level, while differentiating Lycra blend garments from the rest. Projecting the designer chosen for designing a spring/summer 2004 collection for the multinational by saying "Hassan Shehryar Yasin has it" in the introduction as a pun might be taking the branding element too far, since not only was branding very much in evidence at the venue, but giveaways included lots of literature on the same. Along with a multimedia presentation and a couple of speeches thrown in, a word has to be put in for subtlety here.

Effectively bridging the gap between raw material - fabric, and the finished product - a prét line, DuPont has shown the way for the textiles industry to gear up for more value-added products. In the competitive global market for apparel, fashion and textiles, with our basic textile sector infrastructure in place, there remains the need to boost exports. While the Lycra-incorporated apparel line is aimed at both the local as well as foreign market, an interesting fact, as pointed out by DuPont was that "all fabrics used" were locally produced by different mills, primarily Nishat mills, Liberty mills, Master Naqshbandi Industries, Artistic Denim and Siddiqsons Denim.

Kamiar Roknis and Maheen Ali


Karma is one of those lucky few who always knew what it is they wanted to do with their lives. "I knew I wanted to be a designer much before the Pakistan School of Fashion Design (PSFD) had even been established. I don't think I would have ever been happy doing a nine to five job even if it is a lot less exhausting and less time consuming than this one. Anything concerned with aesthetics is my cup of tea whether it is doing home interiors or landscaping or home accessories etc.".

Kami is an interesting mix of contrasts and contradictions. Bred and born in Pakistan, he feels more at ease designing a pair of trousers and a tank top than a shalwar kameez. "Probably because I've always been wearing westerns and I've been reading Vogue since I was six. Also due to the nature of the training provided by PSFD you will find that most of the graduates will be more proficient in designing Westerns than Easterns since our entire syllabus is designed and executed according to the guidelines sent by the mother school in Paris and the emphasis thus is on the designing of jackets and skirts rather than on the making of ghararas and lahngas."

Karma is about clothes that demand attention without eclipsing the person wearing them. Karma's label is about innovative fashion; modern, fresh, glamorous, yet timelessly elegant. Fashion is more than the clothes you wear. It is the way you live your life. Karma's clothes reflect that individuality. They are about style, a sense of aesthetic beauty that is relevant anywhere and everywhere in the world.

Karma

Karma is a label synonymous with success, brilliance and creative excellence. After eight years of staying at the top and catering to elites and ordinary clients alike, karma has built for itself an exalted niche which unarguable belongs to them. Today, Karma is known to deliver style, taste and elegance and in doing so, it is revamping the image of an eastern girl.

Karma was never a flexing-muscles project for its founding designers; who always nurtured it for a blast off into space. Though it was started in a drawing room, the professionalism and dedication that it was dealt with never really made into anything but a budding business. From the drawing room to, two couture studios, eight outlets locally and one in the Middle East and the newly renovated upscale corporate headquarters, karma surely has come a long way, not to mention again in eight short years.

Like many other design houses around the country, Karma too had the flare and the enthusiasm to make it big. But for them, `big` had an entire new meaning. After being acclaimed internationally and locally, opening outlets and having fashion shows around the globe and a massive clientele which feels privileged to be a part of the Karma family; it seems Karma is just doing what it does best; i.e. being the best.

Today the Design director, together with her creativity and acute work ethics makes an outstanding combination to head the fashion house. Strictly professional and exceptionally she is taking Karma to places Pakistani designers have seldom seen. Her vision for Karma exceeds territorial boundaries and goes beyond simply dressing up women.

This is where, Newport West steps into the scene. Collaborating with this American based company is perhaps the best thing that could have happened to Karma. When Newport West first came to Pakistan, they were willing to invest in a reputed design house but one that they could trust with complete ease. They were willing to completely take over the financial and corporate side of the business and let the designers do what they originally meant to do. It believed that a design house running purely on talent needed a direction and a structure that they could fall back on and for them Karma seemed to fill out the requisite form to precision. And so Newport West made Karma into the only corporation of its kind in the country.

Karma holds a strong market positions in its three existing business segments; Karma Wedding which deals with only bridals. Karma Couture that deals with formal wear and Karma Pink which is the prêt brand. In October 2008 Karma launches Karma Fabric which will be unstitched seasonal fabrics keeping Karma’s signature design philosophy and color in mind. Karma Nation will be introduced by December 2008 which will be a trade label for the brand geared towards volume and the masses.
In 2009, karma plans to launch Karma Bling, which will be high-end costume jewelry and next summer, Karma Sole that will consist of trademark jewelry chappals and mules. Karma today symbolizes a brand rather than a name. Judging by their past record of effortlessly succeeding in any endeavor that they put on their schema, it will be no surprise to see Karma pulling it off yet again.

With a thoroughly organized business, complete with a corporate setup, Karma who have already taken over the local market, plan on joining the big guns in the international arena. And why not; when the professional and smooth running of the corporation is at par with any international design house around the world!

A country that timidly backs off when it comes to setting trends and making statements, Karma has decided to take it upon itself to change it all. By doing so, they are not only giving themselves the satisfaction of making it big but also giving a country something to be proud of.

Reet

The word Reet means tradition. Although tradition may not seem to be a priority for the boutique that gave us denim shalwars and a line of day wear in very modern jersey-knit, it is actually a driving force behind the international Reet boutiques.

Reet staged the first street fashion show in Pakistan outside their boutique and uses ancient fabrics such as screen-printed georgette in modern outfits including bikini tops and culottes. All these ground-breaking moves do not mean that his boutique is inappropriately named. To the contrary, Reet believes that the only way to keep tradition alive is for each new generation to use it.

Rizwan Baeyg

Rizwan Baeyg has been described in many flattering (and sometimes not so) terms. Rizwan Beyg is mindful of all influences in his life and fairly sensitive about these. It can truly be said he's been there and done that.

Rizwan Baig describes the fashion scene in Pakistan in 1986 as being on the 'brink of revolution' and 'brimming with radical ideas'. Rizwan Baig was one of those fashion radicals who broke all the rules. Rizwan Bayg explains his almost accidental venture in to the world of fashion. Attending a wedding in Karachi with some friends, Rizwan Bayg casually commented on how beautiful Pakistani women were but how poorly dressed. These friends challenged him as a basic designer (albeit of buildings and interiors), to introduce some designs for women. He took up this dare out of sheer 'gumption and a stubbornness' to prove his point. Rizwan has never quite looked back. He was invited to put together a fashion show for charity and overnight Rizwan became the talk of the town. However, this does not mean he has not developed or evolved. He explains the concept of fashion as he sees it.

Rizwan Beyg is sometimes irked at the international fashion culture which tends to clump together Pakistani fashion with Indian. "It's not the same thing at all. We have different identities and are coming from different places and going different places,.In that sense, we designers become ambassadors for Pakistan every time there is an international fashion show".

At the Asian Bridal Show in Delhi, Rizwan displayed his work. He explains, "I did not wish to shock. Nudity is not the culture I've inherited. I believe in tradition". But Rizwan Beyg does not let his work get lost in the sea of zardozi work and other traditional embellishements used in bridal dresses.

He explains he likes to retain the essence of local bridal wear but likes to "play around with the concept". So he raises shalwar lengths, crops shirt lengths, fuses western sarongs with skirts and with everyone going crazy with colour, Rizwan Baig sticks to pastels. "I'm not a fashion victim and I like to keep my clothes whimsical".

This led to the introduction of Rizwan's diffusion line. He was the first in Pakistan to introduce printed and designer voille and cotton fabric that targeted the masses. This was accessible and affordable wear and in his view, real fashion.

Salman Malik

Conceived the idea for Aangan after seeing the derelict state of the traditional weaving industry in Punjab.

Aangan's 'eco-friendly' cotton and khaddar outfits bear the loving stamp of the weavers' toil, for each fabric is hand-made over a considerable time. The spiritual theme behind every pattern has travelled through time from generation to generation. It is for this reason that Salman Malik's weavers refuse to commercialise their craft; they reject higher profits and do not amend any patterns or colours.

Salman's exquisitely patterned fabrics are sculpted to modern silhouettes in slinky, flattering cuts. Lungi's are remodelled into layered pants and shawls are cut down to sleek blouse tops. The casual look is supported by the comfort of wide jeans and loose shirts and jackets foro both men and women. Formal moods prevail in more structured lines, with vivid colours spilling into textured layers. As tradition meets the modern vision of Aangan, fashion surges forward with brave new ideas to adorn the body.
