Pakistani Fashion Designer Misha Lakhani

Today, during my regular a.m. Facebook newsfeed review, I came across this sari that I instantly loved (and hence saved the photo of for future reference purposes!): It's designed by Misha Lakhani, a graduate of Columbia's Prestigious journalism graduate program, and, a former intern of Bunto Kazmi, renowned Pakistani bridal couturier.

Ok. Apologies for the post delay! I've been busy shopping up a storm in Lahore!On the first day, my sister and I went to Anarkali. Anarkali is a bazaar in old, inner city Lahore and the best way to do Anarkali is by rickshaw. The bazaar is where you find authentic Pakistani goods- everything from… Continue reading Pakistani shopping scene: Anarkali and Defence
