SIKANDAR NAWAZ
Runway Report
 

I was not too sure of what to expect as I was not familiar with the designer’s body of work but Zubeida by Sikandar Nawaz was threaded with haute grandeur. As the showing unfolded, zardozi, dabka and twinkling Swarovski crystals embellished intricately handmade nine-meter lehengas and trim sherwanis. The designer handed his audience an imperial Mughal romance with gota patchwork and semi-precious gem stones like emeralds creating the majestic aura.

Whatever had triggered this new lease of inspired design, it went further than the mere rendition of fanciful costume for the sake of telling a story. Meanwhile, for all the transporting spectacle and extravagance, the narrative never submerged the sense that, within this wonder, there's plenty to wear, too. It was a day when his brilliance had never shone more brightly.
