- Fashion designer Fahad Hussayn’s new collection ‘FACTION’ is facing backlash due to its bold colours and designs, which some believe are reminiscent of the LGBTQ movement.
- The collection features colourful and extravagant outfits, including digitally printed items with various patterns, from peacocks to crawling babies.
- The photoshoot for the collection, which includes makeup on men and unconventional outfit choices, has been criticised by netizens who found it bizarre.
Fashion designer Fahad Hussayn is known for his bespoke fashion pieces that are known to stand out and cause quite the stir. However, this time around the ace fashion designer has caught quite the negative attention for his new ‘street wear’ inspired fashion line ‘FACTION’.
The hip, colourful, festive and peppy designs are raising eyebrows for the bold colours and choice of depiction which others are calling out to be inspired by the LGBTQ movement. Not only the designs but the photoshoot has also caused quite an uproar with the public.
Let’s Take a Look at the New FACTION Collection:
From bejewelled helmets in black and gold to the uber-colourful outfits, everything seems to be quite over the top! From colourful peacocks, multi-colored animals to crawling babies, the outfits are digitally printed with everything under the sun! The ladies have accessorised with the most ‘in’ fashion chunky gold bangles which we must admit we absolutely love. But the entire look – not so much.
While some outfits were comprehensible, others such as this mesh bottom with a striking red bejewelled underwear was something we didn’t quite understand as such. Is this a new style statement for men?
The shoot definitely had some fashion forward shots such as makeup on the men and a male model in a one-piece swimsuit meant for women. Netizens found the entire photoshoot bizarre and questioned the designer for what he was trying to showcase with this collection.
The comments from netizens ranged from ‘this is not street smart’ to commenting curse words. Others continued with ‘what average Pakistani man is going to wear such outfits?’.
The designer may have brought his own perception to life. However, it seems like the public did not quite resonate with his thoughts. Netizens have heavily criticized the collection, claiming that it draws strong inspiration from the LGBTQ movement.
