Nautanki Rani was a short play to pay homage to the performing arts. Traditional revivalist Fahad Hussayn Couture in association with Mehreen Jillani and Learning Alliance School system showcased his collection in a never-seen-before runway presentation.
Nautanki Rani has been written and conceived by Mehreen Jillani, the music is an original composition by Hassan Mohiuddin and is narrated by the legendary Naheed Siddiqui.
The story is a fairytale derived from folklore set in pre-dated Multan and Derawar Fort. The key elements of the collection include influences from Multani architecture, local craft techniques and colonial influences.
The collection comprised a wide array of handcrafted embroideries including vintage tilla, thread work, sucha gota and other local hand-embroidery details, and features signature Fahad Hussayn PRINT MUSEUM couture prints in a vibrant blend with couture embroideries and embellishments that were hand-stitched to perfection.
The collection carried a wide range of delicately crafted couture wedding wear for both men and women.
