Maheen Karim’s genius lies in her clever layering of sculpted silhouette and rich gem colors which is why her label is synonymous with utmost elegance and glamour. Presenting her latest Eid and evening wear collection at Labels on the 19th of July; this fashion veteran is all set to display an antidote to tasteful tailoring and master craftsmanship.
A graduate from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, Maheen has a long history of working with major fashion houses in the West before returning to Pakistan in 2006. Her designing aesthetics remain deeply rooted in a beautiful mesh of eastern and western wear. And this time around, Maheen plays along the sartorial lines and yet attempts to introduce a tab bit of experimentation into her collection which is sure to win the hearts of the crowds.
This Eid, Maheen Karim brings forth a new foray of grunge glamour and mood-altering color palette. She has used sheer body skimming layers of textured silks for formal wear, paired with oversized embellished jackets and capes. Maheen’s finesse is evident in her statement making jackets, smothered in beads and threads work along with intricate zardozi hand-work on jumpsuits and quirky take on laced capes. Not only this, but her collection also includes semi-formal prêt wear and cotton tunics which grawls with sensuality yet retains an aura of mystique which will look graceful on women of all ages.
More so, it’s not just the flimsy tops in poppy accents that will be on the crowds’ lust-list. Maheen has also paid an equal amount of attention to her billowy wide-legged trousers in electric hues and intricately embroidered pencil pants decorated as prettily as an iced cake which is sure to woo the crowds.
Maheen Karim’s Eid and Evening wear exhibition at Labels is ready to welcome the crowds with open arms and an open mind. In all, it’ll be a collection that will perfectly encapsulate the celebratory aura of Eid with flair of high end fashion.
