Dappistan is the first instagram account from Pakistan focused on just mens fashion from across the globe, with a focus on desi menswear and Pakistani men’s street style.

I got a chance to talk to the guy behind Dappistan, Shayan, and he was an amazing person to talk about menswear and style. Here’s our conversation. Continue reading In Conversation With The Man Behind Dappistan

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.

And I had been planning to post about it since a really long time but never got around to it for one reason or another. And what better way to celebrate the Quaid’s birthday than post it on that day? And I am glad Jennine, the Editor in Chief at IFB liked it enough to include it on the list.

I am a sucker for local brands. Moreover, I’m a sucker for local brands that produce cool stuff that’s basically one of a kind and probably something not many people would opt for. I think it is one of the essentials of wanting to stand out; to wear things others would either not want, or would not dare to go for. But this time, I think i would say that the product in review is worth going for definitely.
