Parishae showcased her debut Fall/Winter 2022 collection this weekend. Parishae Adnan’s collection is a take on femininity, women’s empowerment and fashion, which has evolved over the years and continues to do so with the changing times. The collection consisted of a total of 25 beautiful looks.

The collection is titled “Un-Gaze,” a double-edged play on the encapsulation of the female form. It aims to vanquish the male gaze and puts the power and control back in women’s hands.

The collection emphasizes the need for sustainability and green living at the forefront. Adnan worked with an environmentally-friendly approach while designing the capsule couture collection.

Talking about the collection, Parishae says, “This collection is about coming into power and realizing that it exists. The game changes when one becomes aware of it. To be honest, I’m a little tired of men depicting what femininity should be defined as. I reject society’s version of femininity in favour of the modern aesthetic.
