Bridal Couture Week 2013Karachi, April 20, 2013: Pantene Bridal Couture Week 2013 organized by Style360 kicked off to a rollicking start yesterday. The beautifully decorated lounge and red carpet area, complete with fresh flower arrangements set the tone for the evening. The ramp created on straight, modern lines gave a beautifully contemporary look in marked contrast to the more classic sets normally used at PBCW.  Playing with layers and lights and images of nature the set was stark white so as not to detract attention from the clothes and gave a surreal look to the venue.
