Welcoming Spring/ Summer in with style, Stitch Three presents Fashion Day Out – a UK exclusive, South Asian fashion exhibition and trunk show taking place on Saturday 14 March, 12 – 6pm, Athenaeum Hotel, 116 Piccadilly, London W1J 7BJ.
Stitch Three (formerly Faisana), a unique, high fashion retail and studio concept, will be presenting the Spring/ Summer collections of three hot fashion properties from India and Pakistan: Malini Ramani (India); Maheen Karim and Misha Lakhani (Pakistan). Additionally, diamond and polki jewellery will be showcased by Inaaya and costume jewellery by Sonali Creations. Visitors will have the opportunity of purchasing exquisite, high fashion pieces at domestic, India and Pakistan retail prices.
For the past 12 years, Malini Ramani has designed women’s wear that has revolutionised the way modern, urban Indian women dress. Her original, ‘rock star meets Indian princess’ look has built a following of loyal fans from around the world, including Bollywood ladies such as Shilpa Shetty, Esha Gupta, Tabu and Ekta Kapoor among others. Her most popular styles range from jumpsuits, kaftans and wrap dresses to easy to wear travel and resort pieces that include Indian craftsmanship such as bandini, block prints, mirror work, embroidery and tie-dye. Her famous age-defying one shoulder dress has been a standout bestseller for the last five years across continents, graced by starlets, artists, socialites and businesswomen alike.
Maheen Karim is a graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design. After working with globally acclaimed fashion houses in the West, Maheen returned to Pakistan to start her own label in spring 2006. MAHEEN KARIM is a ready to wear label that is Pakistan’s first to specialise in women’s western evening wear. It focuses on the creation of eclectic, luxury garments with the aide of novel cuts and a silhouette with universal charm.
Misha Lakhani is a prêt-à-porter and bespoke label born out of Karachi in 2012. Fundamentally driven by a celebration of heritage, the brand brings tradition into a contemporary context. Expect an eclectic mix of old crafts and modern ideas. Using luxurious fabrics that champion the cause of Pakistani handlooms and weavers, each season is both an evolution and exploration.

About Stitch Three
The Stitch Three brand name and fashion studio concept was established in 2014, the result of a seamless integration and merger of two dynamic, retail and distribution brands, Radhika Hasan Limited and Aamna and Aisha, spearheaded by three individuals with a shared vision to bring luxe, South Asian fashion to the UK mainstream. Their expertise is derived from an understanding of the ever evolving needs of the South Asian audience in the UK, as well an appreciation of the burgeoning interest that South Asian designs, fabric and embroidery generate in the wider western market.
Stitch Three curates in the UK a discerning edit of the leading design talents from India and Pakistan’s fashion scenes for a UK audience – household names such as Umar Sayeed, Maheen Karim, Sania Maskatiya and Nida Azwer (Pakistan); and Tarun Tahiliani, Satya Paul, Malini Ramani, Rina Dhaka and Anita Dongre (India); most of whom are represented exclusively in the UK by Stitch Three. Powered by a multi-channel platform that comprises retail distribution, exclusive fashion events and studio, Stitch Three connects consumers with leading and top tier South Asian fashion brands.
Stitch Three also operates a studio year round, where they feature a selection of handpicked, designer collections, mostly as UK exclusives. They also offer bespoke, bridal and styling services.
