There’s a bunch of exhibitions on this weekend so if you’re looking for pret for winter, head out early this weekend. (With so many pret exhibitions, the rest of this week’s What’s On in Karachi is in a separate post ) Top billing has to go to Nida Azwer whose Winter Pret and Formals exhibition this weekend includes some special one-off pieces. Sanam Chaudri and Maheen Taseer are both at Ensemble this week and worth checking out as always. Another must this weekend is the Grand Serai Bazaar at the Alliance Francaise, which features fashion, home accessories and more, while one of my faves Momina Teli is also exhibiting this Saturday. Lulusar is also showing their latest collection of western wear and Mubashira Usman is showing her Basics collection. There’s also newer designers such as Mahjabeen and Sumera and Maria Lakhany, so there’s plenty of opportunities to update your wardrobe.
