The concept of good versus evil has always intrigued me. This recent shoot of Fahad Hussayn’s bespoke menswear left me feeling like it spoke to me on so many levels.
With PFDC Sunsilk Fashion week, you know you can count on the council to give us a good dose of menswear that leaves us feeling better about the condition of mens fashion in this country. This year, the major change in the looks was a softer side to the menswear.
I would particularly like to talk about Republic here.
Here are my top picks from Fashion Pakistan Week Continue reading Top Menswear Looks from Fashion Pakistan Week
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.

I haven’t done an outfit post in a really long time. But I wanted to talk about my recent steal and how i’ve been obsessed with it. Continue reading Grey Denim Jacket – Worn Three Ways
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.

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
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.

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.
