Models: Off Duty Style at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2014


We see a lot of red carpet and on-the-runway photos floating around after major fashion or media events however we rarely get to see what models dress like in between the shows, when they are on the go!

It’s obvious the socialites will dress extremely well on the red carpet or at any event for that matter. But it’s so much more fun to see how models, who have seen a LOT OF BEAUTIFUL CLOTHES in their careers, get creative with their own wardrobe when they are in a rush!

I tend to think that personal style is what gives each model that certain edge or personality over the others. And I can go on and on about how I prefer the relaxed & natural state of fashion as opposed to the layers of make-up and overly expensive & made up looks.

Here’s a look at some personal style choices that a few models made at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week in Lahore.

Here we see Fauzia wearing a black & white screen print dress, black leggings, some glitter ballet shoes and a pop of color on the lip to go with the super bright carry on. Her tied up hair and reflective ray bans really complete this ‘futuristic & monochromatic’ look.

Areeba has a great sense of off duty style, that being said this is one of her weaker looks as compared to the other days I saw her. I love the military jacket the most. Wish she somehow added some color to the whole outfit instead of so much black. Perhaps a loose grey t-shirt and blue jeans with military boots would’ve completed the look to make it more casual and timeless.

Recently I have been obsessed with POLKA DOTS, so it was love at first sight when I saw this dress at Zara in Bali. Now that I look at the photo, I wish I had sported a delicate vintage looking watch or something with this dress. But I usually stay away from accessories anyways.

Gauri was one of the three models who came from India to participate at this fashion week. She wears a sheer salmon color high neck with cap sleeves, black pants along with my favorite part of this whole outfit…. the tan sneaker heels. She does a good job of carrying the casual chic look as she prefers to carry a backpack rather than a traditional girly handbag.

Himangini also dropped in from India for this show. Again I love the sneaker heels! They look great paired with loose 80’s wash boyfriend jeans along with a sports jersey and round shades.

DIY Styling: Shiny Disco Shades


diypage

On Page 26 of the Kayseria Pret ‘Pretalogue’ you will learn how to make your own Disco Shades inspired by Jewelled Sunglasses like the one below.

490x368

All you need is a pair of well shaped sunglasses with enough room around the frames, a glue gun, small jewel rhinestones, and some square cut out mirrors (that I purchased from Paaras Art Store in Khadda Market, Karachi.)

The rest of the instructions are above (in the first image) and pretty self explanatory.  If you want to improvise you can even use other things like chains, studs, etc.  I used mirrors because it gives more of an ethnic touch and it went well with the styling of the entire Virsa line of Kayseria Pret.

This is a simple and fun way to glam up a pair of old boring shades that you don’t wear anymore. Here are some more images for inspiration. Happy Monday!

Live to Dye


My hair had been black/dark brown for years and I wanted to change my look for 2013 without having to compromise on my hair length. So I thought who better than Nabila to consult with.

I decided that I wanted this ‘dip dye’ thing. Not only because it’s hot right now but also because it can just grow out and I can easily chop the tips if it’s a disaster 😛

Here are a few pics of the process and then the final look.

My original hair color that I had for years.

My original hair color that I had for years. Bye bye black!

This is where my hair was stripped because I had dark hair dye in it previously.

Dip Dyed

Here is the final look with a brown on the overall head and the color “milkshake” at the tips (about 4 to 5 inches)

A Tribute to the Iconic Style of the King of Pop: Michael Jackson


Not only did he produce hits that were larger than life, but also influenced millions of young children and adults with his unique sense of style that truly made him an icon.

He in fact was the “Man in the Mirror”, because every child, woman and man saw or wanted to see Michael in them, when they looked in the mirror.

For me his style choices always communicated a sense of child-like courage, regalness, rebeliousness, responsibility and in some ways almost a bitter sense of being a show man to the world and suppressing his own desires.

Everything he did became a movement in itself. Below are some of his iconic looks that really made Michael Jackson a style icon and drove the masses crazy.
