A recent collaboration of Pakistani artists and influencers with Abhinav Mishra, a legendary Indian designer, has invited the ire of Pakistanis.

Abhinav Mishra Comes to Pakistan

The Mishra label is just as famous and exclusive as the Manish Malhotra label or the Sabyasachi one. We’re guessing after this collaboration, the elites of Pakistan will finally shift from the Sabyasachi overdose and move to Mishra!

These A-list names in India including Jahnvi Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Aliya Bhatt have been seen in it. Make no mistake, this was a huge feat!

Hence, when it came to Pakistan for collaboration, many were extremely surprised and excited. The collaboration was led by Izzah Shaheen a photographer that can be found on @pictroizzah on Instagram. A breathtaking set was created by rounding all the top influencers/models of the moment,

Is All That Glitters Gold?

However, this collaboration did not charm everyone alike. Many are actually furious as to why this was done considering India consistently bans our artists. India hasn’t called for a collaboration with a Pakistani designer, is our talent any lesser?

Moreover, the Premier’s recent statements on why ties with India can never be diplomatic are important. Considering Kashmir is still under siege by India, us hosting an Indian designer can send a wrong message. This may be fashion but fashion is also politics as 2021 has taught us.

More From The Collaboration

The set was done by Ayra Events, the leading event manager in the country. Influencers like Zahra Malik, Sona Rafiq, Alishay Adnan, and Zainab Reza along others were present. Decked in makeup, Mishra’s enchanting clothes and jewellery to-die-for, they all looked like a sight for sore eyes.

The Other Side of The Coin

With Pakistani photographers, models, and makeup artists running the show, their name can also be advanced.

Moreover, let’s not undermine the impact that artists can make. This shoot could open the potential for many more collaborations which could begin to soften the ties between the two countries. Yet, the issue of Kashmir remains like a thorn in the side, we can not leave it behind.
