The 7th edition of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week took place from 14-16 October, 2017 in Lahore Pakistan. The event, which showcased the works of 21 designers, is a collaboration between The Pakistan Fashion Design Council (PFDC) and L’Oréal Paris #BeautyMeetsFashion. It presents both contemporary and traditional Pakistani bridal couture + hair & make-up trends. This year they teamed up with makeup expert Saima Bargfrede to create makeup looks for the upcoming bridal season.
The fashion designers drew inspiration from their rich heritage. Elements from the past go hand in hand with modern trends. Others took the stage to bring an ode to the beauty and strength of women. What better way to do it than with fashion, THE way for a woman to express herself, especially on her special day.
PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week is one of my favourite fashion events, one I look forward to every year. The bridal couture is to die for, the models are perfect and I must compliment photographer Faisal Farooqui and his team at DragonFly for capturing each and every design in the best way possible. Every year I am having a hard time selecting designs to share on the blog. This time I’ve chosen 20 of my top favourite looks. My top runway shows include those of Shamsha Hashwani, Nomi Ansari, MAHGUL and Sana Safinaz.
Model Mehreen Syed is also a favourite, not just of mine, as several designers dressed her as showstopper…can you blame them?! She looks mesmerizing in every shot!
