Have you ever wondered about being utterly surrounded by almost everything made up of your favorite chocolate? Well yeah it sounds like a fantasy to most of us like me. Since Magnum Pakistan had first presented the idea of a chocolate party back in 2015, it became an annual thing in no time. Magnum Pakistan hosted its 3rd annual chocolate party recently and it definitely caught the eyes of almost everyone in town. The party took place in Lahore at the Avari Hotel and from the attire to the sculptures of the eagles, everything was all chocolate. The man of the hour was Paul Joachim, who had something aesthetic to showcase with the sculptures to the royal crowns, he very much convinced the participants that he has formed himself in the king of the Magnum party, earning the title of the chocolate genius as like he was some character from the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The real jewel was the incredible creation of our own chocolaty boy Ali Xeeshan who had ventured with Joachim. The dress the duo presented was wondrous, with the original seal of Magnum, the brown and gold palette with the chocolate carved in a way to compliment the long loose fabric, and if you’re wondering that was it all chocolate then YES it solely was.
The customized bars complimenting individuals were worth watching, they had one for our beloved singer Jimmy Khan too. Singer, Meesha Shafi stole the lights with her adequate dress. The star had worn House of Kamiar Rokn, presenting an amazing performance on Nina Simone’s ‘Feeling Good’ but it wasn’t just her voice which astonished us. Meesha’s performance consisted of her wearing the luminous skirt that seemed like it was powered by some LED.
We also had a brief fashion presentation with Munib Nawaz, Hussain Rehar, Elan and House of Kamiar Rokni exhibited collections that were meant to elicit the luxury. Munib’s balanced collection had a wide range of adequate menswear and on the contrary Elan had ball gowns to offer. Hussain Rehar, was quite verbatim with his presentations related to the chocolate theme and based the his capsules on the whirl.
Magnum always leaves us for something to talk about out of their yearly house party, and the participants try their best to present themselves in a bizarrely unique way. This year wasn’t any different but there’s always a chance to get yourself in a better pace. Hopefully, next year they would consider out of the box creations and make it a lot worth watching.
