Karachi | Pakistan’s first-ever Men’s Fashion Week


In Pakistani society in their everyday life, most men wear shalwar kamiz - a combination of long shirts and loose trousers. For the first time, Pakistan has dedicated a parade to the men’s fashion. Karachi Fashion Week 2013 tried to buck that trend with two days of shows dedicated exclusively to men’s fashion through the couture of 10 emerging male designers.


The event was opened by Pakistani design talent Yahseer’s collection titled Celebration. Keeping the scorching summers in mind, the line’s multi-hued eastern cut ensembles featured printed double-breast jackets, long and tail coats as well as hats.


Fashion label Daniyal, by the Asian Institute of Fashion Design (AIFD) alumnus Waleed Bilwani, showcased a line made of thickly woven cotton at the event. Based on various shades of orange, the range included both eastern and western casual and formal wear.


Drawing inspiration from the design sensibilities of Persian western border and northern India, Shahnameh brand presented black and white angrakha-cut sherwanis and richly embroidered long shirts.


Faisal and Shaban Shab’s Couture featured more costume like pieces at the event. Infused with vertical beige panelling and metal studs, the dramatic collection included cape coats and stylish sheer black tops.


In the aisle of the Fashion Week Karachi shined the proposals of prominent designers that showed the gold and the black, in addition to colorful belts, collars, and transparencies.


The baroque and the traditional merged from the Karachi and Lahore Men’s couture collections. From sporty-looking formals and casuals in both eastern and western wear to chic denim jeans with various treatments, Pakistan celebrated Le Mâle
