Why should grooms be left behind?
There are a world of options for women, from lehengas to anarkalis, gowns, fusion wear etc…but when it comes to groomswear fashion, the head really goes bonkers. At least for me, when I think about what a groom should wear, I draw a blank. Yes, I do have sherwani, suits at the tip of my tongue, but nothing about silhouette, fabric, detailing etc. Like no clue whatsoever.
So if you’re someone struggling with the same issue, then use this post to bookmark some of your favorite looks. I have always been an avid follower of Pakistan bridal/groom fashion, and this time around as well…it didn’t disappoint. What I love about the neighboring country’s fashion sense is that its so different than ours. Even though the basics are the same, its such a refreshing change to see the same outfits styles in so many different ways.
The Fashion Pakistan Week Winter/Festive 2016 just got done last week while I was vacationing in Singapore, and this is probably one of the first things I sat down to look at after returning. The PFDC fashion weeks in the past have been so so good, that my expectation levels were going quite high on this one as well.
GROOMSWEAR FOR THE WEDDING CEREMONY
Whether it is simple elegant you wish to wear, or go all out opulent, the FPW showcased multiple styles and silhouettes to choose from. Personally I think subtle pastel shades look great for the wedding ceremony, and to keep the bling and rich look for the evening party.
GROOMSWEAR FOR RECEPTION NIGHT FUNCTION
Lots of new designer names for me. Are you aware of these designers? I think I am going to bookmark some of them as there bridal/groom collection for this winter season has definitely grabbed my attention. I especially love the dramatic look of the dark black velvet sherwani with the multi-colored printed beige dupatta. I think its brilliant to add that pop of pink on the inside.
Nida Azwer’s latest collection took its inspiration from geometric shapes and textured surfaces interspersed with detailed floral patterns and the ateliers signature bird and nature inspired motifs, incorporating detailed compositions worked in zardozi and resham.
His collection ‘Alankara’ introduced modern textures mixed with classic traditional zardozi work across experimental pieces such as intricately worked trench coats, shorter structured jackets and tops and high waited gharara’s. The collection also revealed intricately hand crafted shawls or chaddars.
GROOMSWEAR FOR PREWEDDING FUNCTIONS
Prewedding functions is the time when you can experiment, wear out of the box outfit styles and pretty much get away with anything. Depending on the number of events, you can choose from comfortable chic look to something dark, regal and blingy.
Which of these outfits was your favorite?
