Arsalan Iqbal returned to the catwalk after a long time in FPW.

Arsalan Iqbal

Arsalan Iqbal returned to the catwalk after a long time and managed to push the sartorial envelope very well.

Drifting between military inspirations and Baroque elements, the womenswear included long flowing gowns, structured shirts and elegant minimalistic saris. The men came walking in jackets, sherwanis and collared shirts. One wishes, though, that the bling could have been toned down, particularly in the case of the shiny silks used in the menswear.

The embroidery was given a three-dimensional effect with gold wire and the range of custom-made fabrics included wintry velvets, silk and a Merina wool-silk blend. Easy on the eyes, easy to wear; there were spurts of creativity even while Arsalan was very obviously thinking retail. Men with a penchant for embroideries are likely to enjoy this collection.

The icing on the cake: a broad-shouldered, tall, very good-looking Mohib Mirza as celebrity showstopper.
