Umaima Mustafa recently held a trunk show at The Nishat in Lahore. By the time we got there around 4pm the show was already practically sold out (the timings were till 7pm) needless to say we were severely curious about this design phenomenon from Karachi and here is what you need to know.

A lawyer by education, Umaima Mustafa chose to follow her mother, Faranaz Mustafa’s footsteps into the world of fashion design. While initially Umaima designed as a hobby only her big break came when she showcased her first collection at TDAP in 2013. Since then, there has been no looking back. Two years and a flagship store in Karachi later, Umaima Mustafa is a go to for Western Wear, Pret a Porter and Evening Wear.

Umaima Mustafa’s design philosophy? Beautifully tailored and impeccable quality, which shall be appropriate for any age group, and last but not the least something that should be flattering to the female silhouette. If you want to invest in beautiful and elegant timeless pieces that don’t necessary go out of style ever, Umaima Mustafa is the designer to watch out for.
