The summer is almost upon us and it’s time to go for some new wardrobe shopping. I was discussing a couple of days ago with a celebrity journalist the condition of high street fashion brands in Pakistan and one name that kept coming under “consistently good over the years” was Stoneage. I love the fact about them that they have churned out quality denim over the years and have been “consistent” with the quality of the clothes they are making.

Last week we had the Pukhtun Festival in Islamabad. When talking to the woman behind it all, Shandana, she told me that this event was not just about the celebration of a culture, it was about the connection the geographical borders cannot end, it was about brotherhood, it was about being there for each other, and it was about unity.
Here are some of the pics from the event. Continue reading Photo Diary: Pukhtun Festival 2015

So obviously, these things end up influencing the kind of art coming from this region.

Art plays a huge role in our lives and it is always fun to go around looking for things that inspire, and art is one of them. But for me, the city has always been a great place to find inspiration from. Since I’ve been a kid, I have loved the urban feel of the cities. It’s always held a very magical and a mesmerizing hand on my thoughts.
Over the years, our lives have evolved. Our cities have evolved and it has had a huge impact on our art. To show the urban effect on our art, and our lives, My Art World, the gallery in Islamabad, is displaying a two person show by Mina Arham & Amal Uppal from today to next week, 20th March. It’s gonna be awesome and a fun event.
