Interieur360 Official Launch by Faysal Qureshi


Talk about homes, think of fascinating interiors. Problem? Not even a single reliable place that offers what it claims. But things are not going to be the same anymore. With the recent addition of a newly launched interior brand, we are sure that Karachiites are set to bring home not just luxurious furniture but a style statement.

Was invited to the happening launch of Interieur360, a nice small place nestled sweetly in the newly developing Ittehad commercial, phase VI-DHA.

The limelight of the event? Great interiors and definitely Faysal Qureshi. Happened to reach the event a lot earlier, which is definitely a good thing since we got to experience the products at the display, take pictures and enjoy quality time with obviously elegant interiors. The owner and partner Mr. Tariq had been on his toes making sure the environment was prime. Mr. Junaid the CEO of Interieur360 was accompanying us throughout the event, introducing us to the concepts behind the designs and sharing the need and ideology behind launching an interiors brand.

With Faysal Qureshi reaching the venue, it had all become about the star that he is and definitely the super-aura. Being down-to-earth as he is, he kept great company for all of us. Announced as the 5-year Brand Ambassador for Interieur360, Faysal had personally endorsed interiors from the brand at his home and is looking forward to a stronger relationship in the future. Post the ribbon cutting ceremony, partners of Interieur360 and Faysal Qureshi gave the invitees some time to pose questions about the brand, the relationship, and the future plans. Mr. Tariq presented Faysal with a Momento and Mrs. Qureshi with a fabulous, vintage wall clock.

There was a lot to look forward to throughout the event and the limelight was the opportunity to have our picture taken with Faysal. Need I say more? Wishing the very best to Interieur360 and can’t wait for December for yet another massive launch by the brand.

Hakim Saeed Awards- Definitely a Night to Remember

Who hasn’t heard of the name ‘Hamdard Pakistan’. The legacy of Hamdard is now 110 years old and the length and breadth of all the milestones achieved so far by this one organization cannot be summed up in a single blog post. The event took place at the breathtaking location of the Mohatta Palace. My first ever visit and that too in a setup arranged at such a massive scale was definitely a worthwhile experience. Properly managed and organized red carpet with ushers that looked after everything and everyone. A custom green bushed wall with Love Pakistan-Build Pakistan written over and the Hakim Saeed Award nestled in between, instantly became my favorite. The route towards the menu venue for the event was also properly decorated with Digital TVs that displayed the upcoming future goals of Hamdard.

Starting off with the Holy Verses of Quran, Dr. Muzna, our lively host for the night walked us through the entire plan and the cheerful part was that everything went smoothly as per schedule. Starting with the enigmatic voice of Talat Hussain who soulfully walked us through the life and struggles of Late Hakim Mohammed Saeed and his tireless effort and lifelong achievements. With Governor Sindh as the Chief Guest and with company members MD and CEO Hamdard Pakistan Mr. Fahad Qureshi, Mrs. Saima Rashid, Chairperson Hamdard Pakistan, Mr. Zubair and Mr. Farukh Imam on stage revealed the official New Branding of Logo and Corporate Identity of Hamdard Pakistan

And the way the entire reveal took place was (in the words of Governor Sindh), nothing less than a Bollywood setup. See for yourself:

Alongisde Hamdard Pakistan launched its latest TVC that presented a visual depiction of Hakim Mohammad Saeed in the numeours heart warming ways he had served the nation with his generosity and wisdom.

With this new Corporate Rebranding, Hamdard Pakistan vows to bring explore new horizons and spring new beginnings. To introduce the award recipients Ishq Pakistan was produced as a devoted song sung by none other than legendary Fareed Ayaz and Abu Muhammed that concluded all the categories and winners for the night and first ever Hakim Saeed Awards.

It was an honor to watch some of the finest and I would undoubtedly say world’s finest talent to step up on the stage and receive the award for the enormous efforts made that definitely don’t need an award to be recognized.

Having gotten the chance to meet and speak up-close to Legends like Anwar Masood (all credit to this event) there’s not just one thing that I took back from this event but definitely a million other things that dropped inside the box. (cannot contain excitement)

The event was concluded with a soulful hour and more long Qawwali by unmatchable due Fareed Ayaz and Anu Muhammed, which had been my first ever experience of attending and hearing a live qawwali, ever. So, you can imagine the intensity of overwhelmed emotions I went through in a single night!

With hopes and prayers to look forward to much more in terms of innovation and introductions, and I hope we are going to find new beginnings in every other aspect of Hamdard Pakistan

Bagging the Award at IPPAWARDS 2017- Dr. Muhammad Nasir

Making celebrities look their best is something that doesn’t come easily to a lot of people in the typical South Asian society. The trend isn’t just true withing South Asia but is a world-over phenomenon. From cosmetic surgery to rhinoplasty, fillers to botox and even hair transplant. Aesthetic surgery is a fine form of art that brings out the individual’s best of features with the help of medically advanced technologies.

Quality art of aesthetic surgery isn’t readily available in Pakistan hence,  many individuals prefer moving to Dubai in order to achieve the desired results from aestheticians and surgeons, abroad. Dr. Muhammad Nasir, Principal Hair Transplant Surgeon M.B.B.S. (K.E), R.M.P., Member AIT (Singapore) Member ISHRS (USA),
Member ESHRS (France) and CEO Hair Club has recently been awarded the Best Aesthetic and Hair Transplant surgeon award at the most happening Awards of the town IPPAWARDS2017

Dr. Nasir had been successfully managing his ever difficult profession of beautifying celebrities who honor our screens for years and years. Many renowned actors, anchors, and even sportsmen have been the successful, living case studies of Dr. Nasir that serve as an inspiration for many.


The perfect surgery performed on these celebrities are enough of a testimonial for future patients to know and understand from. It was indeed a moment of pride for all of us to have a special award being rewarded to Dr. Nasir for his undoubted hard work and dedication towards his profession.

Komal Nasir has been showcasing her designs in three basic categories Shawls, Scarves and Capes. Her designs are covered with intricate, embroidered detailing. Embellished with the additional tasseled detailing and trendy cuts. Komal Nasir, a graduate in Home Economics believes that it is indeed unfortunate to not be able to find a matching dupatta that actually compliments the entire designer outfit. Mostly, the dupattas are kept of lighter materials and colors that keep the focus more inclined towards the basic part of the dress. After getting rave reviews about her personal creations, Nasir expanded her passion into her profession and is now successfully dealing with clients in the UK, USA, UAE and also Pakistan.

‘Her work shows her innate fondness for intricate embellished embroidery. Resham, Marrori, Sequins and Gota work that are unmistakably rich and bespoke’-

Given the opportunity, Komal is now part of the most anticipated Award Platform, IPPA2017 and she is looking forward to the votes of all the women she had truly inspired throughout the way through her personal efforts and the others through her masterpieces.

Experiencing Azaadi Like Never Before

Having spent the majority of my life abroad, including the golden years of childhood and teenage, there weren’t a lot of opportunities to experience the spirit of Independence in the true Pakistani flavour. Though, how it was being celebrated back in the embassy and at the school included much more patriotism than what we usually witness here right at the clock striking 00:00.

This year, independence was more than just independence. Pakistan celebrated the fresh air of freedom for 70th consecutive year and we are no less thankful to Allah for having given us a land of our own to cherish and protect! Dolmen Mall Tariq Road, part of the Dolmen Group, the leaders who brought some of the amazing malls to Karachi organized 70th Independence Celebration on the eve of 13th August that took the celebrations past midnight and the public just went crazy with indoor fireworks, confetti and a special concert by the famous ‘Tu Phir Aoo’ fame,  Mustafa Zahid.

The shared montage pretty much sums up the entire experience with Dolmen Mall Tariq Road hosting a cheerful crowd that flooded the floors and cheered at the top of their lungs, till the last minute. It was a pleasure to have been invited by DMTR to cover the event and to get a chance to meet the wonderful soul that he is, Mustafa. Got a cute RT from him over our short fan moment!

With a team of bloggers working along with me, it was a treat to cover such a thrilling match with the sweetest cherries on top Shahid Afridi and Wasim Akram attending the event and Afridi to especially play alongside. The bloggers enjoyed a great space meeting and speaking with the celebrities of how they think JazzT20Cup is bringing pure entertainment to Karachi during Ramadan.
