Later, it caught attention again with its ‘Nai Rang’, a marketing movement that exhibited models with different skin tones.

It is apparent that the fashion brand is stressing tremendously on women empowerment, body love, and breaking stereotypes for the good of the industry and society at large.

However, its latest campaign touting its ‘Sohni Dharti’ collection has confused marketing critics and fans alike.

In one of its advert, Generation has showcased models wearing retro 3D Glasses. 

The caption explained “May we see you flourish as long as this world is in existence” and highlighted that how plastic waste is destroying our homeland.

Even more peculiar were the images featuring models with printed facemasks to veil their facial features.

Seemingly, the face cover highlighted how air pollution is killing by taking over Pakistan.

Despite the deep message, the images quickly became a laughing stock amongst its followers who were left totally puzzled.
