What’s On in Karachi 1st February to 7th February 2019

We’re in the second month of 2019 ALREADY! Can you believe it…we can’t either… Kicking off the month (quite literally), Pink Riders is offering exclusively female bike driving classes – hopefully, we’ll see more female bike riders in Karachi. Shamaeel Ansari is exhibiting her latest RTW collection while the Alliance Francaise is hosting the global Night of Ideas for the first time in Karachi. Tag.S by Saman Naveed is exhibiting their new collection so make sure you check them out for casual and semi-formals under one roof. Targeting Western and hybrid wear, JACK by Meher Jaffri is having a pop-up at Neco’s, showcasing casuals, formals and graphic tees (you can never have too many graphic tees). Eatistan will also be a fun festival with food and all the works, including music; what’s more is that the proceeds collected will go towards funding Diamer Bhasha Dam – eating food has never been so important! If Nutella doesn’t tickle your fancy (are you even human???) then the Nutella Hi-Tea at Marco Polo will be sure to change your opinion. Welcome to the dark side. We have Nutella. And as always, to digest the food and overcome the guilt of buying too many clothes, Karachi is offering two comedy shows: The Ghanta Show and The Bachelor Party.
