Multi-brand stores remain my favourite places to shop in Pakistan. I mean – it’s a winning formula. Who doesn’t want endless options under one roof? Monobrand boutiques have their own charm, but with time constraints, traffic and weather all bearing down on you it is just easier to hit up a one-stop shop. And that is exactly what L’Atelier is.
Located on MM Alam Road in Lahore, L’Atelier offers everything from cotton pret suits, semi-formals and heavy-hitting formals from some of the country’s best.
Sania Maskatiya has long been one of my favourite designers out of Pakistan. Her aesthetic is interesting and fresh and fashion forward. This ensemble is a little unexpected and simpler than what we are used to seeing from the brand and that’s what caught my eye. I love the fresh sherbet colours, intricate lace and gold block-print. This is the perfect outfit for a formal summer soiree.
9Lines is all about fun and quirkiness. Known for its accessories, the brand recently ventured into apparel and this lip print kurta is a great take on a huge international trend. And the best thing? It’s super affordable.
3. Pershe by Kauser Humayun
A white kurta with bright ethnic embroidery has to be my favourite thing in the world, so when I saw this Pershe kurta I could hardly contain my excitement. It is a piece everyone needs in their summer wardrobe.
4. Tena Durrani
Tena Durrani has steadily made a name for herself in bridals over the last 2 years. This mint green and bronze gown with velvet details can be paired with a lehnga for a bridal look or trousers for a more formal take.
5. Mohsin Naveed Ranjha
I must say I am a bit embarrassed to admit that I actually hadn’t heard of Mohsin Naveed Ranjha until my most recent trip to Lahore. And can I just say, his stuff is AH-mazing. The colour combination is nothing new, neither is the technique. But it all just looks so beautiful. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, amirite?
