Sania Maskatiya: Runway Review


A critics dilemma is always to balance a review with the effort put in by the designer and what the collection offers in reality. A nicely embellished dress will no doubt attract you and look pretty but I have huge respect for designers who invest their time and efforts in technique. Technique such as prints developed in-house makie it to the top of my list. 
Sania Maskatiya is one such designer who has developed a niche when it comes to prints. A perfect cohesion is evident from inspiration to execution. Her latest collection called 'Uraan' is about birds, nature and flight as the name suggests. The garments majorly made up of shamoz silks, crepes and chiffon were treated to screen printing, digital printing and computerized embroidery. Silhouette wise the collection had much to offer, ranging from wide pant to cigarette, cape to wrap and jackets. The collection stroke a perfect balance between commercial and editorial. Loved it thoroughly.
