Rembrandt Collection By Nilofer Shahid 2015

Pakistan’s pre-eminent couturier Nilofer Shahid will be presenting her “Rembrandt Collection” as the grand finale to Fashion Pakistan Week [FPW15], Winter / Festive 2015 on Monday, 30th November 2015.

Nilofer Shahid’s creative obsession with the great Dutch artist Rembrandt began six years ago during a visit to the Rijks Museum, Amsterdam, when she was spellbound by the sheer genius of Rembrandt. The Rembrandt Collection is the realization of that grand obsession into sartorial expression.

Rembrandt has captivated the imagination of millions over the centuries, but no one in the East has paid tribute to his work in the form of couture. Nilofer’s Rembrandt Collection is in many ways a conversation between the two artists and a powerful expression of her fascination with the Master.

The collection is based on the Life & Works of the Maestro. The Five Segments of the Collection depict unique stages of Rembrandt’s life and artistic career: Etching; Chiaroscuro (light and shadow); Baroque; Military; Melancholy. Garments in each category reflect some of Rembrandt’s most celebrated paintings. Every dress is a story, treated in layers, never drifting from its artistic dialogue; each dress is a tribute to the artist’s devotion and creativity. The showstopper is inspired by one of Rembrandt’s most famous romantic paintings, “The Jewish Bride,”- a work of awesome solemnity that represents a deep fusion of spiritual and physical love, unsurpassed in the history of painting.

The collection uses a variety of luxurious fabrics including Velvet, Cashmere, Kimkhwab (our local hand-woven brocade), Jamavar, Duchess Satin, Chantilly lace, Organza and various silks. Nilofer has employed a combination of modern and traditional techniques including digital-printing, laser-cutting, zardozi, resham and stonework in her Baroque embellishments. She has used semi-precious stones and pearls to accentuate 3-D embroidery and has developed a unique chainmail effect. Nilofer’s couture roots are reflected in the emphasis on structure and impeccable detailing.

All of the accessories for the collection have been created in-house, including shoes, bags, jewellery and headpieces. Watch for copper accents throughout, including copper heels, armbands and earcuffs, inspired by the copper plates Rembrandt’s used for etching. Baroque accents including plumes, pearls and genuine semi-precious stones evoke seventeenth century opulence.

“It is believed that no artist has researched and understood the human soul, so movingly and convincingly, as Rembrandt.”

“He touches the core of my soul, when he bares his.

He always abandoned convention, like I do.

I feel like I am a reflection of his soul”

“Reflecting the courage of a wandering free-spirit, the Zingara collection will delight the metropolitan sophisticate with a gypsy heart,” Sanam Chaudhri explains. Layered asymmetrical tunics and blouses with high necks pair themselves with both wide-leg and cigarette pants. Short scarves and stoles accentuate both form-fitting sheaths and billowy skirts. From jackets to cropped tops, from lavish to lace, each ensemble is a separate statement of dare and delight.
