I recently modeled in a fashion show which took place on April 6, 2011 at the construction site of a new Sheraton being built in Islamabad, Pakistan. Sound’s weird but it was a nice change from the usual venues in Karachi.
Yes after eight months of living and working here, venues in Karachi are now becoming the “usual” for me. 😛
The location was beautiful because it was just about 20 minutes before Murree on the Margala Hills. To add to the charm of doing a Sobia Nazir show, J&S did a great job with the event management, decor and ambience. With the small exception of the 100ft runway being a bit lopsided (since we were on the hills). It made the models feel like they were rock climbing in 4 inch heels on the way back from head ramp.
It’s worth mentioning the choreographer of the event, Rezz Aly Shah. I’ve never seen a choreographer so concerned about the models and the show while remaining so calm and polite. Kudos to him!
Here are some photos of the scenery, backstage as well the show itself.
And here are some photos of me on the runway 😛
