What lawn trends should we expect to see in 2021?
What is the fashion color for 2021?
What was your inspiration behind Maahru’s unstitched collection?
"I drew my inspiration for the first volume of lawn from Sulfi embroidery, owing to its intricate design patterns. I then had those further infused with geometric patterns. Our culture reflects a great deal of beauty and colors, and luckily, women's clothing is one such space we get to experiment with these colors and designs."
What colors would you mix and match short red tops with?
"Every design should be unique but it has to sit well with your eyes too. For example, I wouldn't use silver on red. It's just a bit much for me and I don't entirely feel comfortable with it. Every color should be paired with another color that compliments it, rather than fights it for equal attention."
What clothes look best on plus size?
"Horizontal stripes are a no-no for plus sizes. Visually, it will enhance the horizontal field. Stripes in general are a little tricky because there is a color break. So the idea is to use darker shades to contour the figure. It's best to use dark colors wherever you want to camouflage your conscious points."
What accessory should people use more often?
"I think anklets are highly underrated! Using anklets with culottes or any pants for that matter gives a unique and chic touch to your overall look!"
What do you think about hoops?
"Hoop earrings are an evergreen accessory. I'm yet to meet someone who can't pull off hoops!"
What does one have to study to become a fashion designer?
"There are many fashion designing courses that you can do for this. I have a BFD - Bachelors in Fashion Designing. There was a time when we didn't have enough avenues for aspiring fashion designers, but today there are several institutes that offer it - PIFD in Lahore, AIFD, and Indus University in Karachi to name a few. I encourage aspiring fashion designers to take Arts as a subject in their O-levels and A-levels. Not having studied Arts will probably not hold you back, but it'll help you if you do take Arts. It will help put you in that artistic mindset required for becoming a fashion designer."
