The Lahore based designer duo’s collection was divided into two parts; one that showed self assurance and the other that showed a pleasant surprise with a decorative element.

This collection for women was a blend of chiffon and silks with Swarovskies, Zardozi and Beads. Talking about their participation in the second PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week the duo said “We are very glad to be a part of the Sunsilk fashion week being held in Karachi .The chair person Sehyr Saigol has put in all her energy to make it an event to be remembered.  PFDC has incorporated many big players who will support and facilitate the process, and big business is exactly what fashion is supposed to be.”
