Among Pakistan’s most eminent bridal couturiers, the Nida Azwer Atelier is set to showcase their bridal collection titled “Alankara” at Fashion Pakistan Week 2016.
The collection takes its inspiration from geometric shapes and textured surfaces interspersed with detailed floral patterns and the ateliers signature bird and nature inspired motifs, incorporating detailed compositions worked in zardozi and resham. True to the ateliers revivalist ethos of using traditional craft in a contemporary narrative, Alankara introduces modern textures mixed with classic traditional zardozi work across experimental pieces such as intricately worked trench coats, shorter structured jackets and tops and high waited gharara’s.
The collection will also reveal intricately hand crafted shawls or chaddars. Expect a diversity of new elements within the atelier’s zardozi work such as metal flowers and geometric shaped leather and organza laser cuts across net, velvet and organza in rich jeweled tones.
“With Alankara, we endeavor to give audiences a feel for the old world and its vintage charm, where almost every piece has been crafted to work separately as a statement piece or that which can be paired with multiple different pieces.” said Nida Azwer.
