Showing at Bridal Asia 2003 for the second time, where she stole the limelight from designer Ritu Kumar on Thursday at Uppal’s Orchid, Samee believes Pakistani embroidery has several influences that range from Chinese to Turkish. “Karachi is more like Delhi. It is a bit conservative unlike what I saw in Mumbai. But my forte is formal and trousseau wear that focuses on making bridal wear really, really interesting,” Faiza Samee elaborates. Navratan, her collection, is inspired by jewelled hues such as emerald, garnet, ruby, jade and coral. “We never had the kurti revolution that was seen here, probably because most girls still prefer the fitted silhouette. This is the back to the ’70s look that had body-hugging kurtas teamed up with churidars, now that straight pants are out of fashion,” says Faiza Samee. Being one of the pillars of the fashion industry back home in Pakistan, she wants a fashion week there on the lines of India.
However, Faiza Sami does admit that unlike India, Pakistani designers are quite laid-back and very disorganised. “Someone has to take the lead somewhere and make an effort to put it all together. I guess it will take time but we need to get it right in the first place,” says Faiza Sami.
