Haute and Sassy; The phenomenal fashion coach behind your favorite celebrities

Published

on

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?
Mawra Hocane

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 trends are changing and we are moving back to our roots, that is, homemade desserts. There was a time when we would dine out to soothe our sweet tooth but now, we simply go to a food forum, type dessert and find the best in town. Although food is never associated with any gender who cooks the best, we found some incredible women bakers that have been in the dessert making for a while now and you have to agree with our choice while the bring something delicious every time they put their oven mitts on. 

Here are the 4 power-packed women that are bringing the best sweets to complement your sham ki chai and coffee.

You name it and she will make them for you. It was a treat to try her divine desserts just like the name of her bakery. Not only this, she will treat you with customized chocolates wrapped in your pictures printed on it.

Jaweria Usman

Jaweria Usman’s lotus cheesecakes are pure heaven. We don’t remember any restaurant in Lahore that served as good stuff as she makes. Even after being pogged, you will still not feel enough. Made with love and rich in cheese, she has a solution to your bad mood. Ranging from dipped in chocolate to covered with raspberry buttercream; she has got you covered.

The Meetha Cravings Co.

Bushra knows her way quite well. Her chocolate and the cream-filled jar is a great way to brighten your day. Book her for any event and she will not disappoint you. We ordered her chocolate jar which had a moist cake topped with melted caramel. The texture and taste were totally on point. Do not forget to try her yummy chocolate chip cookies whenever you order her chocolate jar.

People meet by fate, we met by Besan ka halwa. We saw this girl making Besan halwa dipped in desi ghee and garnished with cashew nuts and instantly ordered a box. To our surprise, it was the same as our Nanis used to make. It had the same taste and love spewing from each bite. This one is especially for the desi buds. If you are too occupied at your house and want to fulfill your tummy with the conventional meetha i.e kheer, halwa, etc. Henna Tassawur is your go-to person
