Which year was your favourite Lux Style Awards and why?
Which designer lawn would you like to see win and why?
What is the first word that comes to your mind when you think of the Lux Style Awards?
Definitely the year we finally won
The 2003 Lux Style Awards were my favourite, it was my first ever LSA where we – the band – got an opportunity to perform and we also won quite a few awards
I have no clue about the designer lawns but I hope Deepak Perwani wins as I like his work
The event in 2006 when we performed a Nazia Hassan medley. It was so much fun!
Sana Safinaz definitely
Frieha Altaf, as she is credited with bringing the red carpet to Pakistan
The first LSA show which was held in 2002. It was a breath of fresh air. All stars under one roof – it was very glamorous and chic
Sana Safinaz, as they deserve the award for raising the bar
Malaysia. It was nice to leave the country
Sana Safinaz all the way!
Glitz and glamour
The LSA in 2007 in Malaysia. It was a great opportunity to showcase Pakistani culture and arts in another country
The Oscars of Pakistan
The 2007 awards in Malaysia were the most different and fun. However, last year’s event, was also exciting because I won an award for best women’s wear
Although I would like to see my own lawn win, but realistically speaking, we only started this year, so I guess,
Sana Safinaz will take it
Glamour and style
The LSA event in Malaysia was my favourite because it was a great show and I won an award. All my friends were there and we were all staying together in this gigantic resort in Genting Highlands
Sana Safinaz, because they come out with the best product and they are leaders in this particular field
