Why do you love Khaadi?

Khaadi plays a special part of all the festive and everyday moments of our lives! We love Khaadi because it has maintained its design philosophy and it’s mission to cater to the wider market by consistently providing top quality products which are a reflection of our cultural heritage.

How do you feel lawn should be worn this year?

This year we suggest you go with extremely clean cuts and a focus on detail for example a simple, bows and cuffed or knotted pants etc. For lengths both extremes are in – short and long. Choose form flattering silhouettes and let the beautiful design pattern and color compositions do the rest.

What made you start blogging?

In my spare time I would religiously browse through international websites and read articles on latest styles. However, I would never be able to find well curated content about our local fashion industry. I discussed the idea with my husband and his partner who own a web technology firm and that’s when SecretCloset.pk was born. We launched officially in June 2012.

You got the exclusive preview of the Khaadi two piece lawn collection what are your thoughts about it?

It was exciting to exclusively preview the much awaited lawn! The range was an eclectic mix of prints, colours and embroideries- a little something for everyone and I was super excited about the potentially vast number of trendy ways to style these fun pieces!

How important is lawn for a Pakistani women in your opinion?

Well it’s the fabric that works most of the year owing to the weather. It breathes well and good quality lawn lasts many washes, it is also quite a statement to wear certain brands. Even though the borderline madness is a bit much but there is no denying that lawn is perhaps the most relevant fabric for majority of Pakistan.

How do you feel lawn should be worn this year?

We always feel less is more. One shouldn’t pile on everything on a jora. The prints are already busy so it’s best to balance that off with smart stitching. And keeping in mind one’s body type is very very important.

How important is lawn for a Pakistani women in your opinion?

Lawn is a summer favourite and has been for a while. It should retain its functional and accessible feel.

What made you start writing online?

I love how current the internet is and how people can get so creative. I followed the boom of the blogosphere and was hooked – it was so much more than what magazines were offering. It didn’t restrict itself to ideas and trends that publications dictated but here bloggers would explore their own unique passions and tastes and that was brilliant. I attempted to start a blog many times but somehow could never be consistent. It was when I quit my agency job a year ago is when I decided I finally need to do this right. That’s when I asked my dad if I could relaunch his magazine’s website and now we have this amazing space where we create new content everyday for the modern Pakistani woman

How long have you been writing online for?

I have been writing about culture and lifestyle for over ten years now.

Why do you love Khaadi?

It’s accessible and trendy.

Womensown.pk is for every Pakistani woman. Those who like to follow trends and those who are completely comfortable not following them. There’s a little bit of everything in there. We really try to go out of our way to disrupt the clutter

What trends will you be seen wearing in 2017?

Everything I consider ultra-stylish is somehow on trend this spring! Wide legged pants, big boho blouses, crisp short kurtas and the ever so comfortable – sportswear. What I do want to incorporate more – since I’m enjoying following it in magazines and online so much are experimental sleeves.

How do you feel lawn should be worn this year?

Simply but stylishly.
