Pakistani designers such as, Ali Xeeshan didn’t let us down with his flamboyant head gear which complimented the Couture looks beautifully. He used a variety of traditional colours including a mix of reds, yellow and orange but sticking to red as his primary platte. The intricacy in his designs amazed us once again, Ali Xeeshan really knows how to cast us under his spell. If your getting married Ali Xeeshan recommends classic wedding designs.

Faraz Mannan’s showcases brides and grooms can wear black and gold and look stunning on your wedding day. Themain feature was Faraz Mannan’s crop blouse with exquisite Pakistani detailing and a shimmery golden and hints of black lengha. The detailing on the dupatta adds a touch of elegance and grace - a perfect bridal gown for your special day.

And it’s not only the ladies who need to look good but the grooms. The couture runway says heavy detailing, netted maybe even sharwanis now even the grooms can look fashionable.
