Fashion surrenders to Sufism

The venue has played host to some of the greatest music projects in the history of Pakistani pop. Image-maker extraordinaire Nabila had hosted a show that was an eclectic mix of art, fashion, folk and rock ‘n’ roll and had the audience seated in a circular seating arrangement with the band right in the center of the performance area. Making a formidable team with Ather Hafeez designing the costumes, Zain Mustafa for art direction, some of the best musicians in the country contributing to the music – Emu (keyboards), Shallum (lead guitars), Khalid (bass guitar) and Gumby (drums) – along with vocal talent in the form of Positive (Nazar and Yousuf), Saieen Tufail and Shehryar Tariq, Nabila made sure that the event was an experience that appeased and excited both the visual and the sound sensibilities of those present.
