Exhibitions in Karachi

With Muharram approaching fast, there is once again a lull in exhibitions in Karachi. There is only one exhibition being held this week, at Ensemble. The exhibition will showcase Lahore-based brand Mahgul’s bridal and luxury pret collections.
Soma Intl. will be co-exhibiting their Sangeeta Boochra jewellery, which has been inspired by classical Indian design. The exhibition is a trunk show so be sure to stop by as early as possible so you can get your hands on the best pieces before they run out!

Sania Maskatiya Bridal Collection 2015


Sania Maskatiya PLBW 2015
Sania Maskatiya PLBW 2015
Sania Maskatiya  is one of the coolest young fashion designers in Pakistan and her latest bridal collection has that fresh, young yet luxe vibe that we’ve come to expect from Sania. Like the best bridal wear, Sania’s collection is beautifully intricate and my backstage spies tell me the craftsmanship is impeccable. Focusing on wedding wear as opposed to actual bridal joras, the subtle beauty of Sania’s pieces didn’t have the ramp impact of more opulent collections but this is a collection that’s meant to be seen at close quarters. In terms of trends, watch out for lots of velvet this season – Sania’s trendy twist on velvet had frowers marking their wishlists.

THE SUNDAY BAZAAR KARACHI


Today, I am taking you on a virtual trip to the Sunday Bazaar located in Karachi city, Pakistan. If you're new here, I suggest you check this place out.


The Sunday Bazaar
Because it's open every Sunday, that's why we call it the Sunday Bazaar or "Itwaar" Bazaar ("Itwaar" means Sunday). Unlike any mall with concrete roof and air conditioned shop in Karachi, this one is a bit of a stand out.

Ever wondered shopping under the sun with sand under your feet? This place is UNFORGETTABLE if you ask me. It has a lot of cool stuff from household items to clothes, bags, shoes, books and groceries.

All that you find here is not all "brand new"- some of it is second hand. You have to be very careful shopping for things here. The best part about this place is that everything is dead cheap here + you can spot some branded items too. You can purchase items starting from PKR 50 (that's almost half a dollar).

This place is a huge tourist attraction. I see a lot of foreigners (usually Asian and Europeans) visiting it every time I go there. For those who are new, I would suggest bargaining with the sellers, don't just pay whatever they ask for.

BARGAINING TIP: If a seller asks for a price of PKR 500, make a deal at PKR 200-300 (depending on the item). NEVER show excitement when you find something you like, pretend as if it's nothing good, lol. This way you can get the item for a lot cheaper.

I went there yesterday when it was 34°C outside - yes, it's very hot these days. Here are some photos that I took while shopping. You'll know what to expect there.

You'll come across a lot poor kids roaming around, chasing you and asking to carry your items while you shop in return for some money. This little fellow asked me to take his photo. All the sellers and these kids were so enthusiastic about being snapped, how cute?

A book stall. You can get new and second hand books for cheap.

I could have covered a lot of other stalls but then this post would've become way too long and pic heavy. I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did taking snaps for you all.
