Faiza Saqlain showcased her bridal collection HEER at the seventh edition of PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week in the early evening segment. Synonymous with beauty and elegance, the collection is an ode to the iconic Heer, who is present in a woman even today, but perhaps more courageous.
The collection draws its inspiration from the transitional tale of HEER – from the real one, who was forced into wedlock, to the modern-day one, who takes charge of her own life.
It incorporated a variety of techniques including the evergreen dabka, mukesh, tilla and contemporary 3D embellishments and cutworks, throughout the collection. The silhouettes were inspired by Heer’s traditional attire and are customized to cater to the women of all ages and tastes. The Punjabi culture was evident in bright hues such as mustard, shades of blue and red. The collection boasts luxe fabrics such as tissue, organza and raw silk to represent the theme and transition of the women and their style over a period of time.
