If you go back and look at the history of menswear, you will be seeing Deepak Perwani’s name a lot and look at the brand now and you’ll see it has established itself as a prominent womenswear brand now. But what came as a shocker was the announcement that Deepak Perwani will now be showcasing an only menswear collection at the A/W Fashion Pakistan Week. Continue reading DEEPAK PERWANI – Everything But the Girl
When it’s music’s biggest night, one would expect a lot of good choices for the women out there. Pop stars and fashion always go hand in hand, and when it’s the Grammy’s, then the competition gets even tougher. Male musicians also are the kind who know what their signature style is and over time have developed a look that’s definite to them.
Here’s my top picks from the Grammy’s red carpet Continue reading Best Dressed Men at the 2015 Grammy Awards
As the Mens Collections come to an end, I was left wondering about a lot of things. If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time, you would probably know that I am in favor of innovation and creativity and tend to think of fashion in terms of personal expression and an embodiment of personal ideologies. With womenswear, it is easier to do that but when it’s menswear, it seems one cannot get out of the preformed ideas one has about menswear. But thanks to rebels, it’s changing. Yes, well, not exactly rebel off the charts kind, but slow evolution is what matters.
I think that this coat is really the kind where one can be formal with it and informal as well. Like it works with anything. You can wear it with a suit, or like me, without a suit jacket but get a more formal look to an otherwise casual outfit.
I kind of feel older wearing it, is this weird? I don’t know. I think it sort of makes me feel like this is it, that this is the kind of attire I’m transitioning on to. From very individualistic hipster to something so formal. Continue reading Outfit: The Long Coat
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.
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?

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
