It’s a great week for exhibitions in Karachi with two exhibitions by ‘high fashion’ designers and well as several by smaller designers working from home. Lahori designer Mahgul brings her latest collection to Ensemble while designer Layla Chatoor is exhibiting her gorgeous new pret collection at her walk-in studio. On a smaller scale, Rida & Sidra, Colours of Life and Lucknow Sey are all exhibiting semi-formals and formals this week. There’s also a home decor exhibition by Zummirah featuring furniture and accent pieces.
