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

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.

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. Continue reading Turning Up The Summer Heat With Stoneage
Everyday of our lives, in Pakistan, we are wondering so many things and so much is happening at the same time that it is hard to let these things go unnoticed. So obviously, these things end up influencing the kind of art coming from this region. You can see it in the pieces our artists are churning out at art exhibits, and you can see it in the poems our writers are writing. Even our novels are not free of the influence.
So naturally, it comes out in Fashion too. Continue reading Emraan Rajput’s Vision of Military Fashion

As times change and trends come and go, we look back at the past and think of the things that inspire(d) us. While we look at style icons from Hollywood, Bollywood, Fashion, Music and so many other places, we forget that people out there in the real life are also style inspirations and we can look at them to reinvent our wardrobes.
One of those group of people is the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Ground and Cabin crew from the good old days. Their wardrobes were stylish, colorful and so contemporary. As PIA is set to introduce their new wardrobe today, lets look back at the time when flying in style started in Pakistan. Continue reading Style Icon: The PIA Ground and Cabin Crew
