The cliche of the Pakistani Terrorist - Karachista for the Express Tribune

Published in The Express Tribune on 28th April 2013, pictures as per The Express Tribune online

It may have been the Saudis who were responsible for 9/11 but Al-Qaeda had undoubted links in Pakistan
KARACHI:  I bet you never knew there was a Beatles song that goes, Don’t dig no Pakistanis taking all the people’s jobs. Actually I would be surprised if you had ever heard it. The peace-loving band that produced hits such as Let it Be, had satirically aimed the song at racist politicians such as Enoch Powell who, back in the ‘60s, campaigned vigorously against immigration.

PSFW - PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week Starts Today - What to expect and who to watch out for

Soooo excited about PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week that starts TODAY. Stellar line up with some of my fave designers – couldn’t make it to Lahore this time so will be following virtually on live streaming and twitter (#PSFW). Also have plenty of spies who’ve promised me all the gossip and comments which are too spicy or catty for twitter. Not the same as actually being there, but the next best thing.

Sana Safinaz Store opens at Dolmen Mall Karachi

Welcome to SanaSafinaz-land - SanaSafinaz give a preview of their new chic store at Dolmen Mall, Karachi

This article was first published on 25th April 2013 in The Express Tribune
You could have been on Bond Street. Sana Safinaz held a media preview at their new Dolmen Mall store that enthralled even the most jaded media types and socialites. Pitched as Pakistan’s answer to Topshop and Zara, the store offers an exciting mix of pret wear and accessories.
 The store concept and pricing policy may be high street but the feel of the Dolmen Mall store is pure high-end luxury boutique. With its chic black and white theme, blue and white urns and clean lines the boutique is an oasis of contemporary luxury. The racks are gloriously uncluttered unlike the “crammed to bursting point” racks in many local stores. With its stylish glass display cases and spacious seating, the ambience of the boutique is more Gucci than Topshop.

Sweet Sensations


I’m writing this on a massive sugar high after the delicious SWOT dessert-off which was held at The Lantern Chinese restaurant today. All my dietary good intentions evaporated in the face of the likes of Ferrero-Rocher Brownies and Mini Sticky Toffee puddings. Admittedly this was pretty much what I expected when I decided to attend SWOT’s third such event.
