Today’s post is super special! The wait is finally over – At last bringing the best of both worlds to the blog. I am a Canadian born with a Pakistani background and I feel like my fashion sense is as fusion as it could be.
Here it is – My first western yet an eastern fused outfit for you.
The vintage inspired, printed skirt is by a Pakistani designer, Tabassum Mughal who does a great deal of pret line and bridal wear in Pakistan. Not too long ago, she came out with this fusion piece in her set of formal wear and undoubtedly I fell in love with the uber feel to the skirt. Birds and floral prints can be my weakness. The muted color of the skirt with just the right amount of vibrancy in the roses makes the piece a lot more wearable.
I paired the skirt with a plain, white, cotton top; the loosely fit sleeves with a messy tied bow and boat neck line gives a romantic feel and an effortless drama to the outlook. The top definitely created a Spanish mood. My favourite accessory to the dress is this Indian necklace with floral earrings which I purchased from Studio 8 in Dubai. They have a beautiful collection of accessories and eastern wear from many high-end designers from India. I couldn’t finish the look without adding a frilly, organza hat to my first fusion outfit on the blog!
This outfit is created using a Pakistani, Indian and a European brand. It’s all about finding the key pieces to pair together and making a statement. Fusion looks can be tricky, yet the best way to bring out your creativity.
These photos are taken by my favourite photographer who happens to be a very close friend of my husband and I – Zorawar Walia. My husband and I now have a ritual with him to have a memorable photoshoot each year for our anniversary. We team up with The Wedding Chronicle and come up with a different concept each year to execute an exclusive photoshoot. He is extraordinary in his talent – bringing out the best in each portrait. I couldn’t thank him enough for such an exuberant shoot!
Thank-you Colette for being so accommodating during the shoot; great service and a beautiful location!
