Gul Ahmed’s autumn and winter 2014 collection consists of beautiful embroidered silk velvet coats.
Most of the collection featured velvet coats and jackets. I loved Gul Ahmed’s long-lined western style blazer in the green oversized velvet fabric complimented well by the matching dupatta.
The Pakistani designer’s collection combines plain salwaar kameez and churidar trouser suits with panelled velvet patterns.
One of my favourite Gul Ahmed pieces has to be the purple velvet silk jacket with a green cord. I love the fusion of colours, it similar to a beautiful peacock showing off its feathers.
The combination of Asian fashion with western elements inspired me.
My sister and me loved the idea of velvet coats so much we decided to visit our local fabric shops in our Asian area in Luton and create our own Gul Ahmed inspired velvet coat >
I hope you enjoy reading the magazine, as much as I loved sharing the hidden fashion gems and supporting women promoting their fashion business. I'm always on the lookout for inspirational women running or thinking of starting up a fashion business.
