“utho Jaago Pakistan” Shaista Wahidi greets the nation every morning so she becomes the perfect candidate for designer Shab Shiraz to dress in his predictable traditional work with gala upon worked, gala on end and ensembles glittering with Swarovskis, or the more trendy ghagra cholis being sported by the hot and happening, Shab Shiraz’s designs are for every women – the women Shaista Wahidi addresses every morning. Let’s face it, most Pakistani women wouldn’t be caught dead in a ghagra choli. They like pearl, rubies, some razzle dazzle, and a bit of flair. If you tell them “See throught is in”, they’ll say “Okay, just the sleeves please…” They also like volume, lots of it and they have risen to embracing fashion, but with their parameters intact. The Pakistani women is a tough nut to crack, Shab Shiraz’s bright, bold and unexpected formula may well find a place in her wardrobe.
