With Celine’s new campaign featuring Joan Didion, it became evident that writers and authors will always be an influence on the masses, and they have the power to stir things up whenever they want. Buzz Bissinger once wrote a piece for GQ Magazine where he told the world about his addiction to designer leather, and how Gucci even invited him over to show him around, and it was only because he had spent so much money on them. Writers, one way or another, have a hand in the fashion world through their own influences. They’re also celebrities, and they’re also the ones with money, and with fashion, money matters.
As the new year begins, the fashion fraternity gathers in London to kick off the season full of excitement and, of course, fashion in style. With parties scheduled and the shows set, London Collection Men treats fashion lovers to what is to come in the fall of the year. Over time, LCM has developed it’s reputation as the hub of experimental menswear. Where the Brits were known for their dandy style in the past, LCM comes to shed off that image and show the crazy side to fashion through experimentation.

While all the eyes are usually on what the women wore and who wore what, men get sidelined usually when it’s an event as big as the Golden Globes. Yes, most men usually go for the tux, but some men take risks and wear ensembles that not only make them look great, but also make them worth standing out.
While a lot of Globes were given away, the winning trend off the red carpet sure seemed to be the Bow Tie. Almost every other actor was seen sporting the bow. Not that we’re complaining. It sure looked good.
Here are my top picks from the 2015 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet: Mens Edition Continue reading The Men at the 2015 Golden Globes Awards: The year of the Bow Tie

So the winter’s here and it’s a season to layer up fashionably. It’s only natural to go explore your options before going out to buy winter wardrobe items. Of course, one has to stay stylish throughout the year and winter is no exception. So when I saw the Splash winter collection from their fashion show, I knew it was a brand worth having an affair with. Here are the images off the runway.
So imagine my surprise when I was given an opportunity to style their winter “Style Struck” campaign here in Pakistan.
I was asked to create two looks of my own and two looks to style a fan picked out from the multitude of submissions received. And it was so much fun to have worked with my fan Hasan.
Here’s a behind the scenes look. Continue reading Winter Styling and Being Style Struck by Splash
Every book you read, leaves you feeling some kind of emotion. Sometimes, the emotions are so strong, you start crying. I started reading An Isolated Incident right after the Peshawar massacre, and when I had started the book, a few pages into it, I was crying; the picture Soniah Kamal creates is too real, too suffocating, and too hurting. And now, as I sit having finished the book, I am crying for all different reasons. It is rare that you come across a book that leaves you feeling so much, that you need to hug your family members and cry with them. An Isolated Incident touches the heart, my heart, and while I may not be in the same position as its vivid characters, I am able to empathize, and sympathize, and cry with them.
An Isolated Incident made me feel all kind of feelings I want to talk about. Continue reading An Isolated Incident, and the feels it made me feel
This is Pakistan. We are a developing nation and we will be transitioning a lot, and i think it is better to keep our feet on the ground while we aim for the stars. While blogging may seem like a glamorous job, with all the event invites and the red carpets and the freebies, know that it is a very very hard job. It needs your energy and time and your dedication. You just cannot give up on it. You can lose yourself in the fun of it all. Know that you have a life besides instagram, and that life should come first.
