Maheen Khan to showcase "To Karachi With Love" at the Fashion Pakistan Week (FPW) 2014, Grand Finale.
The Grand Finale of Fashion Pakistan Week – Autumn Winter 2014 to be held in Karachi, Pakistan on November 27th, will be presented by Pakistan’s Coco Chanel, Maheen Khan, with her new collection titled “To Karachi with Love”.
Speaking about her collection for the Fashion Pakistan Week, Maheen Khan said,
“To Karachi With Love is a celebration of everything we love about the city of lights. The sixties and seventies with the trendy cafes, shops, cinemas to the nightclubs and discotheques, where the sophisticated set arrived like beautiful swans out for an evening swim and onwards to today.”
The collection is inspired by the uber-sophisticated women of Karachi, Pakistan from the sixties and seventies, who were rooted in the east but modern in their interpretation of the eastern styles. Coats, capes, capelets were borrowed from the west to complete the sari, the gharara, or the shalwarkameez. Embroidery was minimal but the ensembles oozed glamour.
“The woman I’m dressing is very much centered in the 21st century …” says Maheen Khan.
