Our fashion industry is known for its exquisite designs, vibrant colors and a style like no other. Of course, people all over go gaga over them. Orders are placed overseas and mass textile is exported to customers. And just like that, they caught the attention of some of our favorite stars and made it to international red carpet events too. Here are 6 designers who made it international:
1. Kumail Nanjiani In Umar Sayeed
Kumail Nanjiani, who stars as Kingo in Marvel’s ‘The Eternals’, picked out a one of a kind Umar Sayeed sherwani for the film’s world premiere. He wished to pay homage to his ancestral/Pakistani roots, how utterly awesome right? Also the purple was an attempt to pay tribute and represent his character Kingo, in the newly released film! How cool is that?
2. Hasan Minhaj In Nomi Ansari
Hasan Minhaj, one of our favorites, picked out this exclusive sherwani from ace Pakistani designer, Nomi Ansari, for his sister’s wedding. And of course, netizens, especially from Pakistan lost their cool and just couldn’t get enough of this fresh look!
3. Mahirah Khan In Elan
The gorgeous diva, Mahira Khan, the current star of Hum Kahan Ke Sachay Thay and Aik Hai Nigar, wore this stunning Elan outfit on the first day at the Cannes Film Festival in 2019. The white paired with the floral printed dupatta took the look to a whole new level! Those stunning earrings you see are from Pakistani jewelry designer, Zohrah Rahman, and perfectly pulled the whole look in place!
Mahira surely served looks at Cannes that year!
4. Riz Ahmed In RASTAH
Riz Ahmed, the star of Sound of Metal and the Oscar nominee, opted for a handwoven, seemingly cool and breezy shirt, for Esquire Magazine. And in an interview, he wore a printed jacket from Rastah too! Going with the drip!
5. Ranveer Singh In Mohsin Naveed Ranjha
Mohsin Naveed Ranjha, known for his exquisite designs, luxury and bridal looks, got a chance to style the Bollywood star, the talented and full of life, Ranveer Singh, that too in London! These looks were exclusively for the Filmfare Magazine cover. Hard work pays off, and the designs are truly to die for too! We mean just look at the details!
6. Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy In Sana Safinaz
Winner for ‘Saving Face’ in 2012, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy wore this blingy Sana Safinaz gown at the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party. During the main event she opted for local designers too! Representing Pakistani talent and fashion. How amazing!
