What are the five key things you need to look for in a dress?

The five things to look for are a great silhouette, an edge in the pattern/cut, a feminine chic elegance as dresses are worn to enhance femininity, the perfect fit and a complimentary colour or print.

What are the basic colours you should own dresses in?

Black and white are absolutely essential solids to own dresses in. Other than that, it’s about seasons and weather conditions, prints make for good dresses too.

What’s the worst fashion mistake you can make with a dress?

Never wear an oversized dress, baggy and ill-fitting dresses don’t work, they look drab and are far from elegant.

Should your shoes match with the dress or contrast?

Not at all, be a trendsetter and wear what looks fabulous, not what matches.

What are the best stores in Karachi to buy dresses from?

MAHEENKARIM at Labels, Ensemble or by private order!
