The renowned Pakistani fashion house, NickieNina, is set to unveil a heartfelt collection and a cinematic tribute in memory of its late creative director, Nickie Nazir, who passed away earlier this year.
The brand, founded by the dynamic sister duo of Nickie Nazir and Nina Khan, has been a significant influence on Pakistani fashion since its inception in 1990.
In honor of Nickie Nazir’s legacy and her enduring impact on the fashion industry, NickieNina will launch a collection and a fashion film titled “Nickie” on September 22, 2023. This collection is particularly poignant as it represents the last collaborative work of Nickie and Nina before Nickie’s untimely passing.
Nickie Nazir’s influence on fashion is described as embodying “elegance and grace,” and it continues to resonate through the meticulous craftsmanship, unique color palettes, and distinctive silhouettes that define NickieNina creations.
Nina Khan, the creative director of NickieNina, expressed the emotional journey of creating this collection and film, emphasizing their humble tribute to her profound influence on the fashion community. Nina stated,
Nickie’s essence embodies both elegance and grace, a timeless presence that resonates through each carefully crafted stitch, every nuanced shade, and every distinctive silhouette that graces our creations. The journey of conceiving this collection and film has been profoundly emotional, and paying tribute to her enduring legacy is a humble acknowledgement when measured against the deep influence she wielded within our fashion community.
She further added, “Today, Nickie’s legacy of excellence, innovation, and beauty lives on in our team of talented designers, and together we will continue our long history of fine design.”
The “Nickie” fashion collection, showcased in the accompanying fashion film, draws inspiration from the historical eras of the Mughal Empire and the British Raj. The collection seamlessly blends classic opulence with timeless allure, featuring a rich palette ranging from deep reds to soft, subtle pinks and blues.
The fashion film, “Nickie,” is directed by Abdullah Harris and photographed by Khawar Riaz. It features an ensemble cast of individuals who played significant roles in Nickie Nazir’s life and work, including Mira Sethi, Hira Mani, Nadia Jamil, Nusrat Jamil, Vaneeza Ahmad, Mehreen Syed, Fouzia Aman, Fatima Hasan, Jaweria Ali, and Eesha Assad.
The film’s creative style direction is led by Tabesh Khoja of Nabila, with hair and makeup by the Nabila team, art direction by Yousaf Shahbaz, and jewelry by Neemar.
The legacy of Nickie Nazir continues to thrive through the brand’s dedication to excellence, innovation, and beauty. Nina Khan, instrumental in bringing this tribute collection to life, exemplifies her commitment to preserving and advancing the brand’s vision, values, and talent.
As “Nickie” is unveiled, it serves as a poignant reminder of the enduring impact of Nickie Nazir on Pakistani fashion and the brand’s commitment to carrying forward her legacy under the guidance of Nina Khan.
