4 Western Clothing Brands You Probably did not Know about!

Published

on

The hardest thing in Pakistan is to find a good western outfit that too in a reasonable price. We looked around and found some amazing brands that deliver your favorite outfit at your doorstep and have got a variety to perk up your fashion game with a sheer pizzazz.

Here is the list of 4 brands that will not only provide you with the best of colors but along with that, they have diversified range of dresses that very well adjust to your cultural barriers as well. From off-shoulders to crop tops to full length dresses, these shops have got you covered.

Vanya

As stylistic as the name is, Vanya has got a variety of shirts and dresses. Not only in Pakistan, this clothing brand ships around the globe. The vivacious color combinations and variant designs make it a perfect choice to shop for any formal to casual event.

“Vanya ensures its unique existence by featuring latest cuts & tailoring off the ramp to make global fashion statements more accessible. Our every Collection has the perfect blend of subtle & vivid hues, perfect for a modern women to stand out at every casual to formal gathering. We enjoy crafting the perfection for women!!”- Founder

Sowears

Floral prints in long dresses to plain vivid and contemporary hues in jumpsuits; Sowears has got stuff that matches your personality as well as any event that is probably just around the corner. It is more of a one stop shop.

“I created Sowears to bring in some cool western wear with a moderate traditional touch. You usually cannot find nice western wear with sleeves or full length and i had this vision to create something for everyone who likes to wear western but also wants it to be moderately decent. It’s rare to find your favorite piece of western clothing in stores. There are only few brands where you can get them in reasonable prices. There are only listed and selected brands that you will find in a shopping mall and even if they are good, they aren’t affordable for daily wear use.”- Soha Yasin

Zoya Hussain

You will find a very few women actually thinking about making a change or building other women up. Zoya Hussain has a similar vision probably for the reasons that she understands the struggle of finding good western wear that perfectly align with our culture as well. Frilled or floral, stripes or ruffles, Zoya stitches dreams into reality. We love how her each piece shows style, sophistication and a perfect tinge of grace.

“Well, my brand’s tag line is “For women from women” so, I am a big supporter of women all around working hard and making a change in the industry. And my idea is pretty much to bring about more of the western cuts and silhouettes to our country as people are starting to understand this genre of clothing.”

Manam Saqib

Dipped in novelty and glamour; Manam Saqib is all about intricate details, dainty fabrics and attractive cuts. The brand has a diverse range of tops; embroidered and plain having a contemporary aura with a tad bit of old school touch. If you want to move with the trend, Manam Saqib is the clothing line that you would like to visit right away.

“I have been into fashion for as long as I could remember. Since a very young age I used to spend all of my savings on clothes, each and every penny. It was always sad to see that there were not any good western wear in Pakistan. I always had to ask someone to get me clothes from abroad. And from here I got the idea to start my own business. For now, I’m just focusing on western wear as I want to make these classy tops available to the women of Pakistan.”

Ramsha Khan Brilliantly Tackles Hamna’s Situation as ‘Ishqiya’ Comes to a Standtill

Published

on

Ishqiya has finally come to a standstill after a long silence on the part of the main lead Hamna, played by Ramsha Khan. Let’s take a quick look back on the story so far.

Hamna’s (Ramsha Khan) marriage to Azeem (Gohar Rasheed) was her father’s choice, but she accepted this new relationship with all her heart. She had left her past behind and moved forward with Azeem, which provoked Hamza (Feroze Khan) to think that Hamna has betrayed him, so to take revenge for this betrayal, he got married to Hamna’s sister, Roomi (Hania Amir). Hamza had been taking advantage of his relationship with Roomi to emotionally blackmail Hamna into meeting him at hotels and calling her at random hours at night, making sure to disrupt her peace at all costs.

Hamna’s has not been an easy character to deal with, though Ramsha Khan’s powerful dialogue delivery and the way she uses her facial expressions to convey her state of mind clearly showed her powerful acting skills. As Hamna finally broke her silence and confessed to her husband Azeem regarding her relationship with Hamza, everyone is on their toes to see what will happen next.

Ramsha’s facial expressions are simply spot on. Whether it’s the scene when she is confessing the truth in front of her husband regarding her past or hears about her father’s death, we can clearly feel the pain she is going through.

She has been the center of everyone’s comments lately and is receiving a lot of appreciation for her role as Hamna. There is a fan base that loves Ramsha Khan’s chemistry with Feroze Khan, and then there is another fan base that is shipping the romantic scenes between Ramsha Khan and Gohar Rasheed. To have such an impact with one single character is not easy, but Ramsha Khan is winning here with her splendid performance.

The drama shows Hamna with a different vibe when she is with Hamza and a different vibe when she is with Azeem. Hamna’s relationship with Feroze khan was fun and innocent while her relationship with Azeem is more serious, trustworthy, and mature. Ramsha Khan deserves a huge appreciation for producing such a remarkable difference in a character through her performance caliber.

In the last few episodes, Hamna has emerged as a very strong person who knows what she wants from life and how she plans to attain it. This comeback in her character was long due and was executed with perfection. Ishqiya fans have since then gone crazy for Hamna as her character has become more influential now.

The emotional mix up between Hamza, Hamna, Roomi, and Azeem is on an explosive stage. One mistake can destroy four lives, and Hamna is trying her best to save them all. Let’s see what will happen next.

“Beyond Wonder Women”- A Facebook Initiative to Promote Body Positivity

Published

on

Beyond Wonder Women is the brainchild of Minahil Kashif, a Law graduate from the University of London. She struggled with all the things that a normal Pakistani girl has to go through when it comes to the concept of a “perfect body”. Minahil used body-shaming as fuel and a reason to start Pakistan’s first fitness and motivational group that promotes the idea of women of all ages, race and ethnicity to come together and live a positive and healthy life.
The initiative “Beyond Wonder Women” aims to help our nation unlearn the concept of “perfect body” by promoting self-love, along with encouraging to be healthy and discouraging them to come down to society’s unnecessary expectations.
Beyond Wonder Women strives to provide women a safe space. Their Instagram promotes fitness and health while they work on the community’s mental health and well-being through their Facebook group in order to maintain privacy.
Amongst other wonder women is  Maryam Feroz (@25vectors) who has produced content that has helped them achieve many milestones in a short span of time which include crossing 1000+ members on their Facebook group and getting shoutouts from international trainers such as @chontelduncan and @stephaniesanzo.
