Everyone knows that me knows about my slight obsession with Mohsin Ali and his designs. Ever since his first show straight out of fashion school, I have been intrigued by Mohsin’s talent and avant garde offerings. When I learnt that Mohsin was leaving his Lahore-base to head over to Karachi and join the Creative team for Sana Safinaz, I almost had an aneurysm.
The move came as a surprise, but I was excited to see what Mohsin’s aesthetic would do for Sana Safinaz’ well-known uber-glamorous clothes. And I was not disappointed by the first collection designed by Mohsin showcased at the recent Fashion Pakistan Week in Karachi.

Masterful drapes and layering add a modern, almost dark, edge to luxurious jewel tones and jungle prints. I am dying to see these pieces up close; the pictures are amazing and I can just imagine how stunning they must be in person. Outhouse jewellery, now available in Pakistan, perfectly accentuated the clothes.
