I know it is fascinating imagining the models catwalk in clothes you’ve probably never seen off screen, but trust me even that can get monotonous after four shows in a row, especially for a newbie like me. It was time to spice the evening with some desi flavours and that is exactly what the next show by Farheen Bushra Rahman provided.
A London College of Fashion product, she launched her label NISA Apparels in the UK, with a store at Kensington retailing dresses, jackets, cocktail dresses and gowns. In 2010, Farheen returned to Kolkata and started ‘Kyra’. Her most recent venture Fbr.Inc presented her line of collection at FWK. Fbr. Inc has two segments which include pret-western wear and bridal trousseau. It is available in different multi-designer stores throughout the country. There are also plans for a pan India launch of their own brand by the end of this year.
Excellent outfits no doubt, but what made it more entertaining was the unique way of presenting the entire collection by Farheen. We had models smiling their way up to the front, swaying to the beats and greeting their co-models with hugs, smile and arm graze as they crossed ways. It seemed to create an ambiance celebrating the free spirit of a woman. A woman who isn’t afraid to raise ordinary to extraordinary with her charm and grace. The inclusion of unusual cuts and embroidery to the basic forms of outfits is what created her unique line of collection.
