I'm not THAT into the international fashion scene, but I do enjoy looking at designers collections every season and checking out the general esthetics that are being show cased. Vivienne Westwood is a name I associate with 'edgy' designers, especially given how Westwood was responsible for bringing back punk into modern fashion. Over the weekend, I had the opportunity of meeting with one of Westwood's interns who is now a successful fashion designer in Pakistan, bringing forth the same punk-rock and edgy esthetics that are synonymous with the designer. With a fashion degree from Florence, it's no wonder that Roma Azmat, the one-woman force behind Arora, is changing up the game in Pakistani high street ready to wear apparel scene. Before I head into the high tea with Roma, just marvel over this spectacular knuckle clutch! It is perfection - literally. From the rose gold studded detailing to those sugar-skull-knuckle-holders, I'm in love. This is a creation of Roma for Arora, which she was kind enough to gift me! I can foresee me being obsessed with this and whipping it out every chance I get haha
So the evening started with a couple of beauty and fashion bloggers getting together at Roma's residence, which she has decorated all by herself, and chatting away about fashion, the lawn frenzy and of course some fashion tips from the designer herself. It was there that were were treated to an Italian themed high high-tea (courtesy of Frankenstien's chef's) starting with a super colorful Italian soda drink followed by bruschetta, pizza cone's, pasta Alfredo, steaks with white sauce and club sandwiches. Let's just say by the time the delectable Tiramisu and tea came, we were utterly stuffed! Haha :)
Since the evening was all about the designer and her latest creations, we all decided to head over to her outlet at the super-snazzy Centaurus Mall where all of us had a look around, drooled over the amazing jackets and blouses and got to see more of the designers esthetics. Excuse the huge jacket that I decided to put on since it started raining like cats and dogs mid way lol. The evening wrapped up with all of us getting an amazing goody bag courtesy of Arora, which included the clutch I've pictured above and a few other goodies - but I'll be posting about those separately!
In case you want to check out Arora, now it a great time since they are having a 50% off sale! The outlet is located on the third floor of Centaurus Mall, trust me you wouldn't be able to miss it with it's super chic silver and black theme!
