Trying on Capes by Maheen Karim at the Stitch Three Trunk Show

Stitch Three, formerly known as Faisana (and the team behind the Faisana Fashion Weekend catwalk shows from 2014), hosted a trunk show at The Athenaeum Hotel in London earlier this month. I happened to be spending that weekend in London and stopped by to visit the exhibition and browse the collections by the three headline designers - Malini Ramani, Misha Lakhani and Maheen Kareem.


Visitors to the show were treated to a welcome including champagne, teas, coffees, cupcakes, chocolates and macaroons...as tasty at the treats looked, I was more excited to browse the clothing and jewellery collections!

I had a good browse through all the clothes and went round the room twice before stopping at a rail of outfits by Pakistani designer Maheen Karim. Two outfits in particular caught my eye - both capes! The first was in midnight blue with orange trousers and an undershirt and the other was in a very vibrant hot pink with lime green undershirt.


I couldn't resist trying one on, and decided to give the hot pink cape a try...


I tried it on with my jeans so you don't quite get the feel of how the full outfit should look, but overall I really liked the look and I'm really glad I tried this on!

Here's a close up of the trousers and of the detail on the cape itself:

Here's a close up of the trousers and the price of this outfits...I think that's a "4" and not a "9"!

Here are some of Maheen Karim's other collections on the day:

My visit to the show was quite a short one - I was visiting with my 6-year-old niece and she hasn't quite develeoped her passion for fashion just yet! But one of my other favourite bloggers Safeera from Habibi Lifestyle got the chance to interview the Stitch Three Team and take some more pictures at the event, read her interview and check out her photos here: Success for Stitch Three's Fashion Day Out.
