Bisma Ahmed, the young Dubai based fashion designer, and recent winner of Dubai Fashion Week’s Emerging Talent title, showcased her latest collection “Chantilly Lace & a Pretty Face” in her home town Islamabad, during the first chapter of Islamabad Fashion Week. The talented young designer showcased her ethnic-meets-contemporary collection, based on an interesting fusion of the Elizabethan Era with the Mughal Era.
She kept the color palette of the collection to pastel shades, keeping the forecasted color trends by Pantone in mind. While fellow designers showcased heavy Western influenced collections, Bisma decided to enthrall the audiences, which included a high ratio of foreign buyers and media, with her own culture. Her collection showcased what Pakistani women have been wearing, or would wear easily, and provided a good insight to the overseas spectators of what’s en vogue for the average woman.
This collection saw her collaboration with a leading Tissue paper brand Rose Petal, and her finale piece was a skillfully crafted, hand embellished and stitched baby blue gown made entirely from tissue. This Swarovski crystal embedded can-can dress did not only attract the who ever witnessed it, but also made an important social comment on fashion going green.
