Winter in Karachi is way to short for trips to the tailor. By the time my tailor gives me my clothes, our two week tropical winter is over. Which is why I rely on pret for my winter wardrobe. Afsheen Numair of Blocked Textiles is always one of my go-tos. She only sells via her periodic exhibitions which means that her outfits don’t become distressingly common and she’s very good at putting together contemporary silhouettes. Add her quirky blocks, featuring everything from elephants to teacups, and you have a winning combo.
Her winter exhibition is this Saturday 5th December from 10 am – 6 pm. Watch out for scarves, hand-blocked tukri pants, capes, kurtas, lenghas and more.She tends to be swamped as soon as the doors open but don’t worry if you can’t make it early, they’ll be restocking at noon.
Where: House 184, 20th Street, Kh e Roomi, Phase 8, DHA, Karachi
When: Saturday 5th December
