Outfit: Striped Kurta

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

On Compromising Creativity for Cash/Rewards

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

“Do not go commercial at this point in your life, you have too many other things to focus on”

and his advice has stuck to me like hot glue. Continue reading

STONEAGE A/W’14-15: A Cool Way to Handle the Chill

Fall is upon us and the air is beginning to get chilly. It’s about time we went out while a little bit of sun is shining and stock up on the winter wear that makes our wardrobe stand out. Of course, when walking downtown, one would wanna look absolutely fabulous, and would want to look good when going for a cup of coffee, but there is a certain feeling associated with the winter air that somehow, i feel, needs to be translated into what one is wearing. And good for us, that Stoneage offers us exactly that. Continue reading

NYFW S/S’15: When Consumers Direct Fashion

Fashion is one of those industries that is considered frivolous, self indulgent, and highly disconnected from the real world. People call it fake, superfluous, and something not for the masses. But what they forget to look at, is that fashion is so much more more than sparkly clothes and spotlighted threads. It’s about the much ignored part of everyone’s lives; growing up. And if time has shown us anything is that fashion has grown up to be something much much more than a grasp-able thing for a select few. Now it is for everyone. Now, everyone can contribute to it.

Chameleon by Deepak&Fahad – A Story in Review

There was a time when the sun ruled the world. The trees grew, the fruit was was fresh, and the grass was amazingly green. I used to get up in the morning and feel the love radiating from the earth. Everything was so bright, so beautiful, so love-filled. And in turn, i fell in love over and over, and with everything i saw; Love at every other sight. Love at first sight is overrated. You learn to fall in love with everything every time you look at it. It’s the harmony of the disoriented colors, they fit together like a puzzle meant to fall in love with. Continue reading
