Their take on design and the process of design is intuitive while their approach to color and use of fabric is spontaneous yet exceptional.Their collection is a tale of travel and transcendence…a yearning of the soul for a long lost home to which one cannot return.The spirit of the collection is of longing and desire, to hope and to rediscover, to lose one’s “own” to regain the “self” in the process.The collection finds inspiration in the designers’ love for old textiles and their sublime leitmotifs. A riot of motifs- the French Paisley, Baroque chandeliers and curios, Arabesque cartouches, flowering blooms and trellises from Pichwaipaintings, hunting scenes from Afghan carpets and Samarkand rugs, Byzantine mosaics, the Palampore “Tree of Life”, Mughal miniatures, and fantastical Birds and Beasts are used by the designers in a painterly fashion and rendered onto the ensembles using traditional kasab,resham and kachi-patti embroideries.Bringing Padmaavat to live in Karachi, Saba Qamar was the showstopper forRimple and Harpreet Narula.
