Huma Adnan had hitherto primarily showcased collections for her high-street label FnkAsia. With ‘Midnight Garden’, she stepped into wedding-wear and delivered some hits, some misses.
What stood out were some pretty thread embroideries, wide-necked off-shoulder shirts, exaggerated kaftan-like sleeves and chata-pati culottes and pants.
What didn’t work were a range of dupattas that seemed mismatched and a range of glaring jewelry accessorizing the clothes. Also, wedding-wear ideally should be constructed from more luxurious fabrics. Huma Adnan needs to develop more finesse in her work in order to make a mark in the crowded market for wedding wear.
