 Love this Tena Durrani suit, in one of my favourite colours, perfect for the upcoming wedding season. Click to purchase/browse more Tena Durrani pieces.
 Ayesha Yousaf is a relatively new designer on the block, but I really like her designs. She does both evening and casual really well. This colour/style is also very pretty for a night out. Click here to purchase this and/or view more Ayesha Yousaf pieces.
This Aarai cut work kameez is gorgeous. Lovely colour too. Click here to browse/purchase.
 Stunning coat by Shazia Faisal... absolutely exquisite.

Wanted to add a Western piece in the mix.. in one of my favourite colours!!! Adore this MIRI top. This is available in store.
 Such a different take to a jumpsuit, perfect for a mehndi. Trust Sanam to come up with something so innovative and fresh. Click here to browse/buy Sanam Chaudhri pieces.
 The detailing on these Farida Hasan kameezes is breath taking, so ethereal and feminine. Click here to view Farida Hasan's collection.
 This cream applique/cut work short kameez by Elan is fab. Click here to purchase.
 Wanted to end it on a fun note, love this money-haar silk screen printed kameez by Pashmina. So fun!! Love when designers push the boundaries like this. She even had a super Pakola kameez which is now sold out. Very pop-arty! Click here to browse her collection.

Event: Labels and Fashion ComPassion BagFest!

Tomorrow is the LABELS and Fashion ComPassion BagFest, 2013. Ayesha Mustafa returns to Karachi, after the successful launch of Fashion ComPassion's Palestyle collection. This year at the BagFest, there will be a brand new limited edition collection for Eid. This collection consists of wallets, bags and other accessories made from some of the best materials on earth with the signature arabic calligraphy!

What I like most about Fashion ComPassion is that they are a business with a conscience; Ayesha Mustafa has created a platform that supports brands with a social mission. These Palestyle bags are made in a small workshop that employs Palestinian refugees - a percentage of sales from each bag goes to support projects in the camps!

The exhibition tomorrow will be very exciting as after the immense success of the BlogFest, Zahir Rahimtoola has come up with the concept of the "BagFest" - focusing purely on accessories by Fashion ComPassion. There will be a lot of surprises, including a really fun photobooth where you can dress up with your friends and take pictures with the accessories and bags. See the preview below where Ayesha Mustafa and I are posing with some of the bags from the new limited edition collection!! So very exciting. I'm loving the collars we're wearing btw, they are a must have!!

Hope to see you ladies tomorrow? #LabelsFCBagFest

PS - Those of you who won't be able to make it can buy the bags online on the labelsestore:
