Review of designer, Sara Shahid of Sublime, as she shows her stylish and fun collection at Pakistan Fashion Week

Romanticism coupled with practicality is an irresistible combination. Effortless, and classic is what Sara’s label, Sublime, exudes. The word alone explains what she wants the world to know about her designs. She herself epitomizes her own brand as her elegant and clean designs are worn so well by her. Quite possibly one of the nicest designers in the fashion fraternity, Sara Shahid is never short of a bright smile which is probably why her collection was so fun and fantastic at Pakistan Fashion Week.

Colour Me Sublime was most certainly unexpected and some surprises are worth the wait. The whole collection was sprightly and yet elegant and grown up. The mixture of vibrant colour palettes mixed with flowing chiffons and flattering cuts made this collection oh so buyable because a Sublime outfit is the perfect addition to your spring summer wardrobes for 2010. That’s something I adore about this brand and at Sublime’s Pakistan Fashion Week collection; the designs were very wearable and not just for ramp related drama. Some may say it’s playing safe at Pakistan Fashion Week but those who know what Sublime stands for and portrays, will know that the designer used an array of colours which was unlike her usual colour palette of nudes, neutrals and pastels. Keeping this new element in mind, the designer didn’t fail to bring it to Pakistan Fashion Week. Continue reading…
