Saba look 1

This was my favorite outfit! It was a modern take on the traditional shalwar kameez, with the tulip shalwar and peep shoulders making it very contemporary. The colour was the perfect shade of powder pink and the fabric was light and breezy, which was apt for the Summer and upcoming Eid season! I paired my look with pink strappy high-heeled sandals to dress up my look a little!

This pink aghrakha with capri pants is the quintessential mehndi jora, with just the right amount of embellishment. I loved the intricate thread embroidery accentuated with gota work. I paired it with gold high heels and accessorized with a chunky necklace to give the look an extra oomph!

Saba look 3

This was a kaamdani dress done right; Perfectly juxtaposing a modern and traditional look. I loved the long flowy shirt, which was generously filled with kaamdani, and paired with flared pants. The way the Swarovski belt was used to incorporate the duppata made it look very chic – taking the style quotient a notch higher! I wore it with silver glittery heels and got a voluminous blow dry to compliment the glamorous ensemble!

I was in love with the traditional heavy embellished gota work on the dress the second I saw it. The color palettes used were very enriching and fitting for the Summer season.

This entire look was graceful and feminine, with the right touch of modernity. The contemporary cut in contrasts to the customary eastern jewelry I was carrying along made it look so chic, and I could see myself wearing this to any upcoming wedding.

This dainty and feminine outfit is perfect for a day wedding. The multi-hued embroidery sets a beautiful contrast on this classic gold dress. I chose to pair this with statement oversized polki and pearl earrings, and my go to Christian Louboutin Rosette Gold peep toes.

Trust Sabbiha Mansoor’s breathtaking collection to have the most beautiful shades of gold, and this particular look was one is my favourites. Deep shades of maroon and teal set against intricate brocade created a royal old world charm. To add western fusion in the look, I wore it with diamond earrings, an emerald cocktail ring and classic Manolo Blahnik pumps.

This timeless regal number reminds me of the Mughal era. The highlight of the dress is the beautifully embellished statement collar. To let the outfit do the talking, I wore this with an heirloom polki choker, sleek straight hair and bronze Gina Swarovski heels.

Aleen look 1

As soon as I saw this outfit I thought that it would be perfect to wear for Eid! I loved the traditional look of this coral kurta, which is my absolute favourite colour for Summer. The gota work makes the dress a perfect wear for any formal occasion and the dupatta with all its intricate embroideries and embellishments, adds just the right spark. I paired the look with the dhoti pants, which are really in fashion this season and that gave the perfect fusion to the outfit!

Aleen look 2

This green outfit is a beautiful traditional piece, great for a wedding occasion. I felt that the gold gota work really complimented the base shade of olive green, as it brought a vibrant feel to the overall look. The dupatta was a bright pink and green combination, which added fun to the overall look of the outfit. I wore some classic bling and my staple Jimmy Choo heels to complete the look.

Aleen look 3

This one was my personal favourite look! I loved how Sabbiha combined multiple vibrant colours all in one outfit, so aesthetically fitting. The velvet patchwork and beautiful handwork really make the outfit come alive. I think this look would make such a perfect mehndi outfit, since it is such a colourful and traditional piece!
