Famous indian fashion designer Rimple and Harpreet Narula showcased their latest collection at Shaan-e-Pakistan in Karachi, Pakistan
Rimple and Harpreet Narula’s collection finds inspiration in the designers’ love for old textiles and their sublime leitmotifs.
A riot of motifs- the French Paisley, Baroque chandeliers and curios, Arabesque cartouches, flowering blooms and trellises from Pichwai paintings, hunting scenes from Afghan carpets and Samarkand rugs, Byzantine mosaics, the Palampore “Tree of Life”, Mughal miniatures, and fantastical Birds and Beasts are used by the designers in a painterly fashion and rendered onto the ensembles using traditional kasab, resham and kachi-patti embroideries.
Saba Qamar, the well known Pakistani actress who made her foray into Bollywood last year with the critically acclaimed movie Hindi Medium will walk the ramp as the designers’ show stopper.
Speaking on the same Rimple and Harpreet mentioned, “Saba is the quintessential thinking man’s actor and an inspiration to women across borders in both our nations. She has a sublime earthiness to her persona and makes for the perfect muse for our collection”.
