Sleeve less shirts, deep necks, slit shalwars is that the idea of our fashion?? Well that’s what we see on the covers but how many of us wear it??? But that are all the ideas glossies or non-glossies have there to give it to us. Whether you are viewing a high class magazine or just a magazine printed on a recycled paper... that is all there is to see. Get real how many of us wear this stuff...okay sleeveless fine people do wear but who wears a short top showing the belly and slit pants and well not usual slits but slits that go up to your knee? Just today I opened up this glossy which showed the photo shoot of gals wearing jeans and pathetic shirts...I am not saying that we can’t wear it but these are not what I would wear to look classy.
Today we cant say that we are illiterate about fashion come on we have fashion schools sprouting up like mushrooms all over the country but I don’t see any.. I mean any change in that idea that fashion is not for the masses. The sort of fashion we see in the media is not what the masses wear. We also want to have some style okay some small scale designers do provide us with that but if we are talking about promoting our culture through fashion we are so far behind...what I see is promoting the big mighty west in the fashion industry. We try to copy their cuts their ideas and just adulterate out own sense of fashion.
We have big names in this industry but it seems that the clothes are becoming smaller by the day. Yeah they do give the glamour I mean who doesn’t like good looking gals wearing skimpy clothes, but is fashion all about showing your body? Figure? Or is it more about looking good? Feeling comfortable? Yeah guys might like looking at gals in these fashion shoots but trust me gals just get more frustrated. I mean design something that echoes our feelings our culture.
Now this fashion scene is not exactly limited to photo shoots in the papers. Switch to any Pakistani T.V. Channel...
