Nomi Ansari Lawn 2012

Nomi Ansari has released his lawn for 2012! It's awesome, the colours and bold mix of patterns scream Nomi. Nomi Ansari's lawn ad campaign has been the most refreshing and definitely gets me in the mode for spring! Tooba Siddiqui looks ravishing, she's definitely glowing after her wedding. I love the enchanted garden feel. So who'll be braving it out at exhibitions to get their hands on some of these prints?

And the great video ad!

Umar Sayeed Lawn Spring/Summer 2012

The time for waiting is over Umar Sayeed has released his Lawn for this year yet again adding to the lawn tsunami in Pakistan. For me, this was the most awaited Lawn collection of the season. And boy oh boy has the waiting payed off! The collection is everything you would expect after their great Lawn last year! The colours, prints and silhouettes are amazing. This collection by far is one of my favourites this season! Umar Sayeed always wows with his amazing design, and even more with his prices (that I guess are justifiable given his quality of work). Oh how I wish I was in Pakistan fighting it out at a lawn exhibition for these prints. Since I am not all I can do is lust for these prints, enjoy!

Style Obsession: H&M Lawn Like Looks

Living in the west it's difficult to wear lawn, because it is so cold, although I love the bold patterns and bright colours. Though some H&M pieces for Spring/Summer 2012 have these qualities. The above dress and shirt are absolutely gorgeous and they are in a satin, much better than a lawn in spring/summer in the west. The pieces also have nearly duppatta sized silk like scarves that match the dress and shirt! I cannot wait to get to the closest H&M and find these pieces. The pieces have sleeves as well which just adds to my love of these two pieces. I can see myself pairing them with white skinnies and stilettos. I am so excited for summer!!!

Trendsetters: Humaima Malik and Saba Hamid

Humaima Malik looks ravishing in this Sana Maskatiya Tangerine coloured jumper, representing the film BOL at the London Asian Film Festival. It seems like Sana Maskatiya is becoming a top choice for foreign award shows (after Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy's choice to wear the designer to the Oscar Nomination dinner). The jumper is absolutely beautiful with gold button detailing on the shoulder and a gold pattern near the bottom. I commend her on her choice to pair it with a beautiful black shawl, gold clutch, and minimal accessories. She looks elegant and refined. Another leading lady making headlines is Saba Hameed who recieved the Pride of Pakistan award or the Husn-e-Kaarkardigi. Saba Hamid looks gorgeous in that white number(below) excepting her award. I have always loved this silhouette, the long Maxi type shirt with wide legged trousers, as I am tall this look flatters me immensely while being modest. Saba Hamid deserved the award immensely having been in the Pakistani drama and film industry for decades now and for being a wonderful actress all those years. I hope these ladies keep making Pakistan proud.

Karma Lawn 2012

Adding to the lawn madness this year is Karma. I have always loved Karma, the Lahore based company, because their looks are constantly different and unique. The colours and patterns in this collection are a breeze of fresh air. They are extremely bright and playful, and I love it! I adore that so many different fashion styles are in this summer. From short shirts to long, churidaars to Wide-legged trousers to patiala salwars, and from frocks/maxis to the traditional kameez. Tons of attention to detail is in the collection chiffon duppatas and hand-embroidered suits. Check out the collection!
