I was very surprised when my dad told me that there were South Asian designers on the catwalks of Milan Fashion Week (yes, I know that was way back in September). I do like South Asian Fashion, so was very interested to see what they came out with.
I tend to only wear traditional clothes at weddings, and am always looking for ways to modernise them. I always find it really uncomfortable to wear them for more than a few hours at a time, so I happily welcome any modern and comfortable ideas for them.
They were being showcased in Milan on the 30th September 2009, as part ‘N-U-DE New Upcoming Designers Project’, launched by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana to enhance international designers.
I’m looking at three designers that were there: Deepak Perwani, Maheen Khan and Rizwan Bey.
Hopefully I can look into each designer in depth some time in the future, but for now, here are the photos from the show:
These first pictures are from Deepak Perwani. The colours and styles of his clothes are magnificent. I googled him a while back and some of his collections are fantastic.
These next ones are from Maheen Khan:
And finally, these ones are from Rizwan Bey. They have to be my favourite from all of the collections.
All pictures from Dawn Newspaper. Which ones are your favourites and are there any out of these 3 designers that you’d like me to research some more?
