When I met Hira Shah back in 2008, I instantly knew she had it in her: the height, the attitude, the beautiful golden skin and the ambition were all perfect for a modeling career. But then, she vanished.
A couple of years later, she reconnected with me on Facebook and I was impressed to see the body of work she had been doing all over Europe. Her go-getter attitude has taken her places and she now not only wears a model cap but has gotten herself a degree in fashion design and also freelances as a stylist. And now that she wants to come and get a taste of the Pakistani fashion industry, who better to introduce her as a cover girl than us! Read everything about this stunner on page 40.
With all these fashion weeks, our fashion industry might be booming and at every one of these events, a brigade of new designers and models are introduced; but then, there are those who have been around for years and never fail to impress. Three of my favorite such fashion geniuses are featured in this edition. Sonya Battla's beautiful lazy silhouettes and minimalistic capsule that comprises of lehnga skirts, Kaftan dresses and tie-n-dye tunics is featured on page 30.
