Fashion designers Maheen Karim and Safinaz Munir were spotted at the opening of Nida Azwer Atelier in Karachi, looking fresh and relaxed. Here is a breakdown of what they were wearing:

Maheen Karim

Hair & Make-up

Simplicity dominates Maheen’s look, as she complements a light lip colour and subtly done blush-on.

The wavy hair with back combing is a thumbs-up. Such a relief to see a fresh face instead of one layered with make-up. 


Loyal to her brand, Maheen wore a colour blocked cotton kurta with a pretty floral design — the perfect thing to have in this deadly heat.

The tapered camel pants and emerald green buttons are perfect touches. 

Accessories and Shoes

We are in love with this chunky gold bangle with colour stone pieces. The emerald green studs are also a win and totally in keeping with her casual, understated look.

Her nude Bottega clutch and Swarovski encrusted flats are the perfect pieces to make a statement.

Safinaz Muneer

Hair & Make-up

Safinaz also seems to be a fan of simplicity, as explained by subtle make-up, and open hair. We love that she has avoided straightening her hair and has opted for natural curls at the ends. 


Lime is surely the colour of the season! And who knows it better than this design queen? Her silk shirt with broad panels is stitched smartly and ends right above the knee — the hemline of the season. 

Accessories and Shoes

Pearls are an all-time winner, earning her a big round of applause from us for wearing beautiful pearl earrings and a long dangly pearl necklace. The snake-skin heels, camel clutch and gold watch are all the elements of classic and chic.
