PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week 2013

Image

Reema wears HSY.

The Pakistan Fashion Design Council (PFDC) and L’Oréal Paris, one of the world’s leading beauty brand joined hands to present the PFDC L’Oréal Paris Bridal Week 2013  boasting bridal designs of renowned Pakistani designers such as Sana Safinaz, HSY, Nomi Ansari, Zara Shahjahan etc.

Naturally, I was interested and started to incessantly google the collections. No sooner had I seen all the collections, all I could say was ,”Meh”. No really! I simply cannot picture a Pakistani bride in any of these. Ok, ok, well, some could be worn but that is all I am willing to commit at this point.

Here are some of the designs I liked and some that I am indifferent to. :)
