I have fallen in love with Shalwar Kamees again- 2010 brings with it long sleeves and über long, flowing kamees. Gone are the horrid capris and short shirts – Alhamdulillah. Can only pray that covering witha duppata/hijab becomes fashion one day.

I wanted to share some of my favorites- This is by Karma, black and chunri what more could I ask for except the sleeves-

I adore the length and shape is taking me back t0 the early 90’s. It’s so feminine and NOT raunchy.

Here is another one that made my heart sings- I am still FASHION FABULOUS under my abaya

Nayna's Rust Bling Thing

I had never heard of this designer before- here is a link to  an interview with Saman Arif- the designer behind Naynas. The asymmetry in the shirt is an update on an old classic Mughal Princess (Anarkali) kurta , the kaam (hand embroidery) looks exquisite.

This a traditional peshwaas worn by Mughal era women-

The royal lines ran through Elan’s collection- I was suitably impressed by the following outfits- mostly whites. I noticed as I was looking through my cousin’s wedding pictures and the PFDC fashion show- the colors are really muted beiges, nudes and whites – very few bright fuchsias and turquoises- which I adore.  But jewel tones like garnet, amethyst and sapphire were still worn enthusiastically.
