The fashionable managing director at Farida Hasan, talks about the evolution of her wardrobe, which has resulted from the changes in her physique over the years
Understanding your body is the key to looking good and a trait found amongst all impeccably dressed fashionistas. While people shy away from talking about their bodies, these brave souls explain how they work their anatomies to their advantage
How would you describe your body type?
I would say I’m skinny-fat.
Has your body type changed over the last five years?
I used to be really fit. Even after I had my son, I was still really fit. Then I hit my 30s and every year since then I’m irreversibly gaining weight. The fact that I am unable to diet doesn’t help either.
How has your style changed over the years?
In college I was mostly a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl, and I never wore heels. Now I feel I’m more confident and more experimental in the way that I dress.
In your opinion what is your most troublesome area?
How do you dress your body according to your body type?
Loose tops are all I need to appear slimmer than I am. Luckily I have a deceptively thin face, so even when I’ve gained weight, people can’t tell.
In your opinion what is the biggest mistake a person can make while dressing here?
I find dressing over-the-top for lunches and teas, especially at restaurants in Lahore, really inappropriate.
Which silhouettes suit your body the most?
I think all silhouettes suit me just fine, as long as they are not too body hugging.
What is the one piece of clothing that you shy away from wearing?
