off the runway

November 29, 2011

last month while attending pfdc fashion week, catwalk queen frieha altaf was spotted in looks even before they were showcased on the runway. frieha has cemented her status as a fashion icon in the country, with good reason. she takes risks and is often very bold with her choices. i say, you go girl

freiha wears this black and white geometrically printed robe dress which is belted at the waist. the dress is from the 2012 khaadi khaas collection. i think frieha looks fabulous here. i love the sidebraid and the pop of orange with the bag. it is always a great idea to add  some fun to a black and white look with an interesting, contrasting accessory. i think the necklace could have been given a miss – it is not really required here.

the second off the runway look was no so fabulous. frieha wore a design by newbie irfan ali. the look is very bedouin – bohemian, but it ain’t workin. while the same dress looks chic on the statuesque iraj on the runway, it is drowning frieha. i’m pretty sure it’s the sleeves – she should have taken them in a bit. i always have the same issue, since i am a mere 5’3 whenever i want to wear something bohemian-y with supa-big sleeves i end up looking like a midget. o woe.  the hair should have been up, how cool would a topknot look? or she could have gone all out and thrown on a turban
