Day 4 marked the Closing Day of  PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week, November 2010, in Karachi. Day 4 was buzzing with fashion, music and high drama! The evening’s opening show was staged by Maria B., whose Fashion Week womenswear Prêt a Porter collection, “Tribal Militants” featured a diversity of fabrics such as pure cottons, khaddars, chiffons, denim, jute and silk along with knits. With an emphasis on prints, hints of culture, tribal bohemia and the sombre goth of military precision, a western silhouette was showcased. The collection drew inspiration from two of the constant forces at play in Pakistan, thus the tongue-in-cheek title of the collection, and hence was especially inspired by the Pakistani Army as they saved millions of their countrymen in the rural areas during the floods. Talking about her label the designer said “Internationally relevant and affordable fashion for the modern Pakistani woman" she display her collection in charity show called “Fashion Gives Back” in which the Fashion Week and other designers participated featuring live music from the famous band “Fuzon”. The charity show was produced by HSY and styled by Asmaa Mumtaz .
