Hussain Rehar’s New Collection: An Amalgamation of Tradition and the Contemporary
Dipped in sophistication and grandeur, Hussain Rehar has tried to recapture the essence of Eighteenth-century with his new clothing line; “Nizam Begum” showcasing the out-of-the-world aesthetics and design philosophy, that takes you on a ride back in time to that same era; with royalty oozing out of each ensemble. The whole collection is a testament to the finest craftsmanship, careful designing and hard work that’s reflected in the exceptional attention to the details. Apart from the astounding intricacy, Hussain Rehar has used the finest fabric available, to provide an amalgamation of both royalty and comfort in his outfits.
History: The Nizam Begums were the wives of the Nizams; rulers of the princely Hyderabad state. Nizam begums; queens of the Nizam dynasty, led extraordinarily lavish, posh and royal lifestyle, which was reflected in their unique, timeless attires, adorned with intricate embellishments and designs, openly expressing their royal stature, style and taste in dressing.
The ‘Nizam wives’ can be seen here, photographed in Hussain Rehar’s new Eid collection, reminiscent of that same glorious era, where he has tried to recreate the same great style and timeless fashion, by introducing and infusing a contemporary touch and creating a masterpiece that’s both sophisticated and outstanding; a stellar addition to one’s wardrobe, a piece of clothing that’s a must-have, timeless and making the one wearing it stand out as if draped in finesse.
What’s more interesting, is the fact that this intriguing piece of clothing, although affordable, is a limited edition range. Hussain Rehar has attained his inspiration from the Nizam Begum, so the collection is named after them, as a tribute to their timeless, sophisticated style and breathtaking dressing sense. The elegant pieces create a balance between the traditional and contemporary, and the final result is an outfit that is too tempting to resist.
Catwalk Cares Season 2 Recorded Amid Strict SOPS
Catwalk Cares Virtual Fashion Show Season 2 was recorded amid the setting, perfectly similar to any other fashion week outside of the Covid-19 pandemic except there was no engaging audience present and instead the side rows were eerily filled with empty wooden benches.

The show that was successfully recorded in the first week of August, for later virtual transmission, will be aired on ARY Zindagi TV worldwide into three-day format and on ARY Digital for its YouTube transmission under the aegis of ARY as the Official Media Partner on this Independence Day.
Frieha Altaf, CEO of Catwalk Event Management & Productions on the occasion thanked and gave credit to his friend Asad-ul-Haq (ace advertising filmmaker) for suggesting to present Catwalk Cares Season 2 on a ramp.
“Those who were in attendance though were a selected number of Media, came to the recordings at different time slots in order to follow the strict SOPs. Likewise, designers and brands along with their models were also assigned separate intervals so as to avoid crowding,” explained Frieha.
She added that participants were instructed to wear masks, keep a social distance and using hand sanitizers when off camera and continuously urged to remain safe.
At the show, singer Ali Tariq of ‘Bekha Na’ from ‘Parey Hut Love’ did the world premiere of new song “Chaho Na” while popular Folk- Rock singer Natasha Baig performed the song ‘Kaseria’ for one of the participating brands Kayseria.
