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.
MAKNATEES or M A K N A T E E S – Made in Pakistan, is the brand in focus right now. Continue reading
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
I finally got a chance to visit the Farmer’s Market at Kuch Khaas. For those of you who don’t know; Kuch Khaas is a center of Art, Culture and Dialogue and one of the most happening places to be if you’re into creative expression. Also, I had interned there, so the place holds a special space in my heart. It felt great to be back.
So the Farmer’s Market is a weekly affair where local produce is sold. And the food, the food just makes it so much more worth the visit. It’s like an explosion of flavor. You just have to go there once. I think I’m gonna be going back a lot. Continue reading
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
PFDC L’Oreal Bridal Week concluded recently. Here I pick my favorite looks from the whole affair and interpret the little of the menswear trends we can adopt to from PLBW 2014 Continue reading
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
Always Be Prepared
“You can never be over dressed, or under educated.” says Oscar Wilde. And he is right. The thing about style, is that it always depends on the occasion. Being appropriately dressed (even if it’s overdressed) is something a style seeker must always be ready for. Also, what good is style if you’re not up on substance? This week’s link roundup gets you ready for all of that so you’ll never be caught off guard. This season anyway. Continue reading
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. Continue reading
I think 9lines is one of those brands that you just gotta have because it’s so unique and speaks volumes about one’s taste (read more here). It’s like, if I’ll have 9lines, i’ll be able to stand out from the crowd, and feel like I’m wearing something made just for me.
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
