South Asian Fashion

I was very surprised when my dad told me that there were South Asian designers on the catwalks of Milan Fashion Week (yes, I know that was way back in September). I do like South Asian Fashion, so was very interested to see what they came out with.
I tend to only wear traditional clothes at weddings, and am always looking for ways to modernise them. I always find it really uncomfortable to wear them for more than a few hours at a time, so I happily welcome any modern and comfortable ideas for them.

They were being showcased in Milan on the 30th September 2009, as part ‘N-U-DE New Upcoming Designers Project’, launched by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana to enhance international designers
I'm looking at three designers that were there: Deepak Perwani, Maheen Khan and Rizwan Bey.
Hopefully I can look into each designer in depth some time in the future, but for now, here are the photos from the show:

These first pictures are from Deepak Perwani. The colours and styles of his clothes are magnificant. I googled him a while back and some of his collections are fantastic.

These next ones are from Maheen Khan:

And finally, these ones are from Rizwan Bey. They have to be my favourite from all of the collections.

Which ones are your favourites and are there any out of these 3 designers that you'd like me to research some more?

I love the colours so beautiful and vibrant :)

Sher said...

Oh, I like the first designer's creations, they're so lovely! The whites in the third designer's are very beautiful as well:)

Cafe Fashionista said...

Rizwan Bey is my absolute favorite. I love how pristine and sophisticated the all-white palette is! :)

Hey Sherin :)

LOVE the Rizwan Bey collection, it's so beautiful!

& I really like all the vibrant colours in the Deepak Perwani collection too.

Such an interesting post! Thanks for sharing! :)

I would love to seem more of that first Maheen Khan piece. Is it a dress or top? The print is stunning!

Kym said...

i love south asian fashion, the colors are always so VIBRANT and the styles so LOUD! ;P love it!

Elaine said...

I love ethnic pieces but never know how to wear them!

Tasha said...

Thanks for the comment on my hair! I got a lot of good advice and feedback, so it was very helpful!

I like Rizwan Bey's collection the best. Something about the white looks elegant and whimsical and makes me think of snow and Christmas! Which I am so ready for! Well, Christmas, actually not really the snow! I like the way snow looks but not having to drive in it!

The Haute-Shopper said...

Beautiful! I've always loved the embroidery and intricacy of Southeast Asian garments, but I can imagine it's not for everyday wear. All of these are so gorgeous and good modern takes on the look. I love the Rizwan Bey ones, just because I think they would match any wardrobe but are special enough to make a statement!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Simply stunning! I love the first collection because the colors are rich and beautiful. I love the last collection b/c of its edge and uniqueness. I would love to learn more about those two designers!

Cheryl said...

I love them all but my favorite judging from these photos is Deepak Perwani. Love the colors and the designs. So WOW to the max!

elledee said...

how beautiful! I love the Rizwan Bey stuff.

nookie said...

I love the Rizwan Bey items:)

Love the Rizwan picks, it has the influence of south asia but the colors are so light, its gorgeous

the oaks said...

Such details. Amazing.

Maria Confer said...

These are all stunning Sherin, but I think my favorite is the Deepak Perwani collection.

I love the bold colors.

I'd be interested to hear your investigation into any/all of these, particularly since they relate directly to your own interaction with parts of your heritage and what you file under 'tradition'; it's always interesting to hear people's opinions on design and aesthetics but discussion coming from the perspective of "this garment sort of belongs to me, how do I/can I make it work for me" really makes me sit up and go: Ooooh, fascinating.

It'd also particularly appeal because I'm far more used to seeing non-Eurocentric clothing being reinterpreted by British/American/French/Italian designers. Your mention that these are South Asian designers working with South Asian motifs sounds miles more interesting, frankly.

I can't pick a favourite from the three, though! They all appeal in different ways.. D:

The Man Who Knew Too Much said...

I really like the colours of the design, so cheerful. South Asian fashion is really something I have not seen before, thanks for s

OceanDreams said...

I like Deepak the best just because the color, but the last designer is also amazing. What a unique take on style, I like it!

bryna said...

i love that first designer. amazing colors.

Oh I just love South East Asia's gorgeous, vibrant, beautiful clothing! My only complaint is the lack of diversity on that runway! Tisk Tisk to the casting director! Hahaha After all, those raven-haired, absolutely and impeccably stunning Asian models would have made those clothes look ten times better... but that is just my opinion.

Taylor Sterling said...

I love all the details and the bold color!

♥ Marta from With Love... said...

I think that it is always fun getting to know more about international designers!

Nubiasnonsense said...

I would love to experiment with that third picture.. I wonder what I would wear it with hmmmm

Carrie said...

Wow, these runway pictures are beautiful.

Damsels said...

oh owow incredible .. the colors are sort of breathtaking ive never heard of Deepak Perwani but these few pics speak a thousand words to how awesome he is
