Our Favorite Looks from Atelier AZZA at PFDC
Since launching at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week last fall, East-meets-West couture line Atelier AZZA has rocketed to the top of many a fashionista’s must-have list. Though fans have grown accustomed to seeing Creative Director Azeeza Desai Khan as the face of her own line, it was the freshest faces in Pakistan who showcased her Pre-S/S13 luxury pret line at PFDC in Lahore last week.
Khan recently joined the faculty of International Academy of Fashion Pakistan, a training institution run by supermodel Mehreen Syed. The supermodel also walked in AZZA’s show, which was produced by Pakistan’s self-proclaimed “Couture King” Hassan Sheheryar Yasin. For Khan, showing in Pakistan fits perfectly with the values she seeks to espouse in her own work.
“I want to be a part of a new wave of freshness in a conflicted country that is slowly entering the global fashion scene despite its social and political issues,” Khan says.
