Lahore: Kashmir’s traditional ‘phiran’, an oversized gown, got a makeover at the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2016 here.
Zara Shahjahan’s luxury collection titled ‘Sartorialist’ was a modern take on the ‘phiran’ (worn by Kashmiri people to guard against cold) and was coupled with a minimalistic and organic look.
The designs looked royal and light by selection of earthy shades and soft pastels.
“From the elegant pink of Kashmiri chai to the intricate Shikargah tapestries and the oversized Kashmiri phiran, we have infused all to make a modern and minimalist collection,” she added.
The designs showcased at her show on Saturday night were not limited to the ‘phiran’. Kaftans, coats and kurtas were also seen.
The linen designs were finished off with statement bags.
