Mahoor is just awesome. If you don’t know her already, you should. She did the FPW illustrations for me too. You can check em out here.
So Basically she’s a med student from Peshawar, who left a career in medicine to pursue her passion; art. And I think it is very important to support talented people following their dreams. So you can see here right now how talented she is. Here she illustrates PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2015.
I love going through instagram photographers and I believe our country has a lot of talent. So in order to find myself the kind aesthetic i like, I looked on instagram for a photographer to collaborate with for the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2015, and I stumbled upon @LahoreWala‘s profile after hours of research. You have seen my previous collaboration with Fahhad Rajper here, but this time around, Shahroze, the guy behind @LahoreWala had something new to offer to me since I was tagging along with him on the red carpet just shooting instructions at him. He was so patient to have listened to me all along.
So Muhammad Shahroze is actually an Architectural Engineer from UET Lahore and works as an engineer. He pursues photography as a passion and his instagram is amazing. It’s kind of fun to work with him as well as he’s a great listener and gave me the kind of work i wanted. He also dresses very well too, like, he knows what accessories are and he dressed so cool on days 2, 3 and 4. Casual, but edgy.
So Omer Farooq was kind enough to let me cover the Republic S/S’15 collection from backstage. He also let me style it up a bit which is very generous of him since I think I changed a lot of looks. And it was an amazing experience to be backstage. Here are a few shots of the clothes up close in the edits that i like. Continue reading Photo Diary: Backstage With Republic S/S’15→
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.

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.
The summer is almost upon us and it’s time to go for some new wardrobe shopping. I was discussing a couple of days ago with a celebrity journalist the condition of high street fashion brands in Pakistan and one name that kept coming under “consistently good over the years” was Stoneage. 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.

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.
