This Week in Pictures: Karachi 12th – 19th March 2016

Designer Lawn was huge this week with two major launches as the weather hots up. We’re also still processing fashion week, plus we were style spotting as usual – check out some of the best of this week’s pictures from our popular Instagram account @karachista1

  1. Team Karachista spotted actress Sanam Saeed at the Karachi Farmer’s Market at the Haque Academy. The still developing market isn;t every week just yet but it’s a great place to pick up organic milk, fruits, veggies and a host of artisanal food and beauty goods.

3. All things fashion week led to some controversy as one of our followers pointed out quite a bit of similarity between a Feeha Jamshed Bob Squad print and the Staceface print by American designer Alice & Olivia. Cue a vehement denial by Feeha and an article in the Express Tribune. We stayed quiet and let our followers make up their own minds.
