Pakistan had very few opportunities in clothing design and fashion tastes are culturally limited so for a while, I was stuck with an unrequited passion for fashion innovation, eagerly browsing old issues of western fashion magazines sold cheaply by weight. Knowing my ambition but with opportunities in Pakistan too limited, I saved my pay and made a big decision to leave my country and move alone to the UK to further my textile studies and seek opportunities here. I worked again in fabric design and completed technical courses in sewing, drapery and pattern cutting.
I visualize designs that marry cultures East and West and I hope my portfolio illustrates this. Hardly any Pakistani designer has a globally known name and I want to prove that I am capable of blending traditions to produce pioneering designs.
