Have you ever wondered how a random model or an actor instantly gets such a swanky fashion uplift? It is all because of their stylists who put their whole heart to make a look razzle-dazzle and exactly on point.
One such name that all of us are very well aware of is Ania Fawad. From her exquisite dress sense to fashion knowledge, everything keeps us in complete awe with each look she creates.
We got a chance to talk to this bundle of style and class, and that’s what we got to know.
How did it all start? How did a blogger become a well known celebrity stylist?
When I had first started blogging, there were only a handful of Pakistani bloggers on the scene. But a couple years into it, everyone had decided to become a blogger. I became bored of it and wanted to grow. That’s when I stepped into celebrity styling… since there were hardly any stylists in Pakistan at the time. I didn’t do it to become well known, I still don’t think I’m that well known to be honest, I just knew I wanted to do more with my talent and not be another sheep in the crowd.
Everybody has low points at the start of their career, tell us yours? How many years did it take you to reach to this level?
I’ve been styling for 3 years now. I can not really say I’ve struggled a lot because I was lucky enough to get project after project. But the way I see it, the lowest point in your career is when you’re at your highest… because where do you go from there? Right now, I feel like I’ve worked with everyone I wanted to work with. I’ve done all I wanted to do with styling. And it’s time to grow again.
Who motivated you to be a stylist?
I’m a huge Bollywood fan, and I would follow the stylists in their film industry and wish we had better ones in ours.
Who was your first client?
What was your biggest break in terms of styling a star celebrity?
Sadaf Kanwal for Hum Style Awards. That choker I created got a lot of attention. And Maya Ali for Teefa, that was a fantastic first project with her.
How is Ania in her real life?
Basic. Likes to stay home. Eats Taco Bell. Watches old Bollywood movies on Netflix.
Which one is your favorite celebrity to style?
I always enjoy styling all of them but right now it’s Maya Ali.
Your fashion inspiration?
I take a lot of my inspo from social media stars I follow. I also like the Hadid sisters and Camila Coelho’s style.
Which celebrity you think doesn’t need a stylist?
Everyone needs a little help from time to time.
How do you manage to do such an amazing job considering that such influential people come to you for styling? Does this intimidate you?
I was only intimidated while I was styling for the first time. But after that, not so much. I treat the stars like friends. It becomes easier.
What do you think is the most important trait needed to be a stylist?
Stay true to your vision, do your homework and have thick skin for criticism. The internet can be savage.
In your opinion, What do these new stylists lack?
Every other person thinks they are a stylist these days. I wish people understood there’s an art to this, you have to put in actual work and research.
We have seen you dressed up all the time, but what is your comfort dress?
I’m in tracks and tees when I’m not dressed up.
If you could choose one celebrity to style for the rest of your life, who would it be?
Maya. We work well together.
Tell us about your next big projects other than styling?
You know what they say… never share your love life, your income or your next move!
The Launch of Burger Lab’s latest invention – Burger Lab Innovation Kitchen
Every time we head out of the house for dinner – there is one dreaded question that we ask each other, where are we going to eat today? Well, living in Karachi, we are always overwhelmed by so many options that it is hard to choose where to dine out, so we’re here to give you some suggestions as to where your next dinner or lunch should be. It should definitely be at the new Burger Lab Innovation Kitchen!
All of us have been eating from Burger Lab’s scrumptious burgers for as long as we can remember – so what’s so different in this new innovation kitchen, you might ask? Well, as the name suggests, this new outlet by one of the most famous burger franchises in Pakistan is all about innovation! Located at Khayaban-e-Seher, with a chill, cozy, yet fancy vibe, Burger Lab has introduced an Innovative Menu, and it is oh so good. Believe us when we say, there hasn’t been any place in Pakistan that makes you want to keep going back for that Honey Glazed Burger (our favorite from the menu). The other items in the innovative menu also include Honey Glazed Chicken, The 3 Musketeers (sliders), and Bounty Shake.
As you can tell, the Burger Lab Innovation Kitchen will be our weekly meal stop for a while. The idea behind the new place by Burger Lab is so amazing, as they will only be offering the products in the innovative menu for a few weeks after which, they will introduce a new set of products – how tempting is that? And oh, don’t worry if you fall in love with an innovative menu item that might be leaving soon, they will be launching the innovative menu items that people love nationwide across 29 other outlets!
So, what are you waiting for? Head to the Burger Lab Innovation Kitchen and tell us what you think!
KASHMIR Are All Ready to Release a New Single ‘Ayi Bahaar’
One of the greatest discoveries of Pepsi Battle of the Bands has to be the 2017 Winners of the competition KASHMIR, an alternative rock band from Karachi that really came and conquered. The group which consists of 6 members has been making headlines with their music ever since. They finally satisfied their fans with their debut studio album ‘Khwaab’ last year. The album was critically acclaimed and reminded us of all of the reasons as to why we fell in love with this band in the first place.
Well, after much anticipation, it looks like KASHMIR is finally putting out new music once again and we are genuinely thrilled. The band teased the arrival of a new single ‘Ayi Bahaar’ on their Social Media, and fans have been patiently waiting for the single to drop on the first of October.
The name of the song is enough to tell us that the song might somehow be related to everyone’s favorite season (Spring aka Bahaar!) and so we have reason to believe this is going to be a fun and funky song. The cover art for the single looks amazing too and we can’t wait till we can listen to the song.
KASHMIR has managed to rise to fame in this very competitive music industry with their original sound and beautiful lyrics. Since Pakistan has started to see some growth in the music industry – it is extremely rewarding to see how this new band is taking center stage and bringing us some brilliant music while they do that!
