We recently witnessed a private solo show by fashion designer Shamaeel Ansari that marked the opening of Fashion Pakistan Week, allowing for a unique experience. It is a format that is followed at major fashion weeks around the world.
While this presentation is being followed up by three days of fashion week that will feature a combination of designers, there is another solo fashion show that has been announced.
HSY, one of the most prominent fashion designers in Pakistan, recently made an announcement regarding a private show that he plans to put up in Karachi later this year. The award-winning designer, who made his solo debut in 2001, aims to showcase his Fall/Winter Couture 2017 collection in December in the city by the sea.
“I am delighted to announce our 2017 couture solo show in the warm and wonderful city of Karachi; the city which stands as a major fashion force for the House of HSY,” he shared in a press statement. “With our brands’ natural evolution and in line with the international fashion movement too, we believe in the strength and power of having our own shows in order to fully share the entire HSY experience; empowering our brand and giving its innate aesthetic more liberty to express its spirit. While this does mean we have therefore decided not to participate at any fashion weeks this year, we are delighted to come back full circle to the luxury and vision of a solo show and look forward to presenting our work on our own platform at the end of this year.”
HSY’s upcoming collection will feature his signature handwork and its evolution over the past two decades.
