Deepak Perwani S/S 2010 Collection: Spotlight on Handbags

[Click images to enlarge]

Have you ever been to a desi (South Asian) wedding? If so, the first time around you might have been taken aback by the colourful wedding . If not, I'll have you know that rainbows ain't got nothing on the exhilarating colours you'll find there.
I thought I'd be used to seeing a mix of bold yet beautiful colours all combined in one beautiful outfit, but when I saw Deepak Perwani's Spring/Summer 2010 Collection, even I was taken aback! Just look at the few items from his collection below.
Even though I love some of the items from his collection, what caught my eye were the handbags! Colourful, fun, creative, mirror work, culture, style, & lots more.. what's not to love?
How lovely are the handbags? Seriously, I can't take my eyes off!The models had the right kinda attitude for wearing the collection down the runway. They're totally killing it & looks like they're enjoying every moment of it.
So who is Deepak Perwani? In all honesty, if you asked me this question yesterday I wouldn't know. Today, while browsing around for desi outfits, I came across some Pakistani fashion designers & he's one of them. Deepak Perwani was one of the top 3 Pakistani designers who presented his Spring/Summer 2010 Collection during Milan Fashion Week in September 2009.
He has shown his collection internationally & I think it's great that Pakistani designers are finally taking that step forward. It will show Pakistan in a different light - the creativity & talent hidden within the borders will shine. Pakistan has a rich culture & the world will finally see more of it now.
Back to the handbags... "desi spunk" is right. I am in awe & would absolutely love to own one of these handbags!!
Some of the pictures in this post are from Milan Fashion Week while others are from Pakistan Fashion Week & others are from here & there.Once you've worn the handbag, you don't have to store it away. Use it as a wall decor ;)
In the preview of his collection, this is how he showed his handbags.. truly letting the colours & work do all the "talking" while they're placed on a white wall.Look at how beautiful the whole ensemble looks. You can wear it with a simple white blouse & shorts & the bag would rock your whole look!
However you wear it, one thing's for sure.. you'll feel like you're on top of the world! Indeed, all eyes will be on you.These handbags are one accessory that will boost your confidence & make you feel pretty.

Hope you enjoyed looking at the collection (especially the gorgeous handbags) as much as I did.
