We are talking about Murtaza Hussain who held a bloggers meet and greet in Ramadan at Tehzeeb on MM Alam Road, Lahore. The event organized by Transmedia Digital.
Before we get to the collection, a little detail about Murtaza himself. A PIFD (Pakistan Institute of Fashion and Design) graduate, Murtaza started working for Faraz Manan. After working for 4 years with him, Murtaza has now started his own label and you'll find his studio located in Gulberg, Lahore.

Now about the collection. Bushra and I fell in love with the designs! Not one but majority of the clothes at display were beautiful. Collection titled *SATRANGI* was all about delicate embellishments such as Swarovski Crystals, Cut Dana, Sequins work and pearls on the fabric in trend these days i.e embroidered Organza. Pastel colors such as fawn, gold, pink was the theme of Murtaza's collection. Cuts in focus were peplum and boot-cut pants, flared gowns and traditional Lehnga.

We asked him about his inspiration for the collection and his reply was that multi colors and traditional designs from the 70's and 80's era was incorporated with his own unique sense and we totally agree. We could see a re-vamped twist on the clothing. The embellishments and pearl tassels resonated with us and took us back to those times we saw our mother and elders wear such designs on their special occasions.
