Makeup artist Nighat Misbah of Depilex group recently teamed up with stylist Waqar J Khan and transgender activist Kami Sid for Pakistan’s first fashion campaign featuring a transgender.
Kami Sid, who is the most vocal transgender activist in Pakistan and has represented the trans community locally and internationally.
“With the recent inhumane acts towards the transgender community, Waqar J Khan came up with an idea to showcase how incredible the trans community is, via a fashion editorial piece and in the process he approached Depilex for creative support as he had already worked with us for our Smile Again Foundation in the past” Nighat Misbah explained.
“The entire Idea of taking a transgender as a fashion model was to acknowledge a transgender as ordinary individuals, to give them their rights and tell everybody transgender life matters. Furthermore, working in the fashion industry I feel it’s our social obligation to make the masses comprehend their acknowledgment”. highlighted Waqar J Khan.
The forward thinking and a campaign like this have certainly staked out further new territories for the transgender community.
