Jeremy Scott and Katy Perry are best friends. So are him and Miley Cyrus. Which is why when they come out to his shows, people pay attention. Fashionistas and music lovers alike. It is when every pop star wears the colorful creations by the designer that the sales take height. And who doesn’t wanna dress up like their idols, or at least have what they have. It’s the emotional branding that goes along with the choices Moschino makes for its brand, and it’s the perfect combo for everyone. All are happy.
Jen Law for Dior, Cara and Eddie for Burberry, And a plethora of celebrities and bloggers for Calvin Klein’s #MyCalvins campaign make the common man notice the fashion. Such is the power of the film stars and pop stars that fill up our social media feeds.
While Pakistanis might not have the star power to battle for the spotlight and take over the fashion industry, what we do have are budding superstars who are making their name across the border, in south Asia, and hopefully in the south Asian community globally. We have them to turn to, to get the fashion collabs going.
One of those superstars is Fawad Khan. Yes, the Humsafar guy who won over the hearts of millions of girls all over the world. He is the perfect person to take a brand name forward with his good looks, boyish figure and a fan following that speaks volumes of our obsession with Humsafar. Oh, and don’t forget he co-starred with Sonam Kapoor. That makes the perfect sartorial couple, no?
HERE ARE MY 5 REASONS WHY FAWAD KHAN IS THE PERFECT AMBASSADOR FOR REPUBLIC Continue reading 5 Reasons Fawad Khan for REPUBLIC by Omar Farooq is the Perfect Choice

I designed this kurta myself. It’s really hard to find a tailor who understands the need of a client. And i was lucky to have stumbled upon a tailor who understood what I wanted. The fit is great and the design he got almost right. Almost right is good in Pakistan, where tailors have the tendency to ruin outfits. Lucky me! Continue reading Outfit: Striped Kurta
I finally got a chance to visit the Farmer’s Market at Kuch Khaas. For those of you who don’t know; Kuch Khaas is a center of Art, Culture and Dialogue and one of the most happening places to be if you’re into creative expression.

When my blog started to gain attention among the masses, I had no idea there’d come a time when I’d be writing for various brands when they would ask me to write for them. I wrote about them earlier on because I tend to write about the things I like, and when I came to the point of being approached by brands to write for them, I was excited because now it was not just me reaching out, but i was being given consideration as my words having value. But a really good advice a friends of mine gave me back then was

and his advice has stuck to me like hot glue. Continue reading On Compromising Creativity for Cash/Rewards
