The Disappointing Menswear at Fashion Pakistan Week

When it was Fashion Pakistan Week A/W 2014-15, I was excited for the fact that menswear was coming back and a lot of designers showed menswear. But I don’t know why and where things went wrong that the menswear shown at this year’s Fashion Pakistan Week seemed to come across anything but tasteful.

Illustrating FPW- by Mahoor Jamal

I have always been a big fan of art, and Mahoor is one of those talented artists out there whose work speaks volumes of the talent she has. She’s an art student from Peshawar, thankfully, after quitting her medical career after her Pre-Medicine classes and took to following her heart. And this path has lead her to many open doors. One of the things I like about her is that she listens, and takes advice seriously, and considers it. Because of her talent, and her perseverance, she is steadily getting a name among the younger generation, through instagram, tumblr, and her blog. She has even had big celebrity names reach out to her and commissioned her for the work. They reached out to her. yeah.

Check out her work on instagram here, and her facebook here.

So she did these amazing illustrations for my blog from the recent Telenor Fashion Pakistan Week. Check em out below.

Fashion Pakistan Week – by Fahhad Rajper

So Fahhad Rajper is an amazing photographer i found on instagram and since I couldn’t go to Telenor Fashion Pakistan Week 2015, he was kind enough to cover it for me. You can check out his work on facebook here, and instagram (my personal favorite) here.

His work is really beautiful and it really resonated with the kind of work I like. So he went and got m  exactly what I wanted, which was his forte anyway.

Show him some love and make sure you let me know what you think, in the comments section below

Innovation and Desirability, Distressed

As a fashion blogger, and that too menswear, I am always looking for things that are exciting and new. I emphasize on the word “innovation” a lot and while I do believe designers in Pakistan have their concerns when it comes to experimentation because the ones on the receiving end are not always responsive, sometimes a designer needs to focus on innovation just for the sake of it. And if a designer keeps in mind the wear-ability of the collection along with experimentation, this makes the collection more fun. Because sometimes the people need to be told and showed what they want, or like.

The house of Arsalan Iqbal showcased the unisex, androgynous collection “Cargwar” at PSFW last year and with their new collection “Desirability Distressed” , Arsalan Iqbal hopes to bring out the creative side of denim in Pakistan Continue reading Innovation and Desirability, Distressed
