KARACHI: The Pantene Bridal Couture Week kicked off a jovial start on Friday 20th April, 2013 at Karachi Expo centre oraganised by Syle360.

The show began with a thump of a Pantene hair mob choreographed by BodyBeat Productions along with the appearance of the Pantene brand Ambassador Nina Lotia on ramp for a mock hair-styling of models.

The first display of collections was by Zainab Chhotani, with a perfect blend of elegance and of heavily beaded bridal wear followed by Nadia Chottani with an elaborate collection of jewellery.

Subsequent to an exuberant performance by the charming couple, Aamina and Mohib, Saim Ali came on stage with an exceptional bling.

Mona Imran closed the first show with a collection of bravado aesthetic combinations including saris, lehngas and peshwas. Hina Dilpazeer opened her show next; Saud and Javeria appeared in her ensembles in the middle and Saira Khan in the end.

The second show opened with outstanding ensembles by Zaheer Abbas after which Amna Ajmal displayed her multihued line.

Vulgarity has to be avoided. Pakistan is a Muslim Asian country. Such type of semi nude dressing in the name of fashion show is un-acceptable. Shame & disgraceful act by Pakistani models. Let this post appear

The Pantene Bridal Couture Week kicked off a jovial start on Friday 20th April, 2013 at Karachi Expo centre organised by Syle 360, was a great success. The fashion industry in Pakistan is progressing well and we so proud of it. What the need of time is to bring them in a lower income range specially the trendy outfits , which ll make the living comfortable and stylish.
