BEHIND THE [SCENES]

My life is a work of art because I surround myself with people who inspire me to create. Check out my first D[I] concept video with the help of the insanely talented filmmaker Bisma Khan, photographer Shamain Khan, and makeup artist Christina Williams.

Eid & Things

Muslims across the globe gathered last week in celebration of Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of Sacrifice, the second of two major religious holidays for people of the faith. Eid al-Adha commemorates Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son for God and marks the end of the pilgrimage to Mecca. On this day, Muslims attend morning prayer […]

FASHION X DALLAS

In the spirit of #NYFW, Dallas experienced its own bit of fashion wonder. FASHION X DALLAS showcased some phenomenal local designers. The 3-night event was full of industry personalities, stylists, bloggers, designers, and anyone who is anyone. In essence, it was the shit. So naturally, I was a bit complacent about what to wear to […]

70s & the Fringe of Fashion

  The 70s have been making a steady comeback in fashion over the course of spring and summer, showing no signs of dissipating into the fall and winter seasons. Cropped knits, bell bottoms, suede, fringe, big western buckles, button-front skirts, lace-up bodysuits, and positive vibes are having a fashion moment again right now–and we think […]

Transcend

   When it comes to style, I do not see where the lines are drawn. You can and should wear anything you please. There are no rules, no limits, nor parameters. Because style does not tell you who to be, style is who you are. As sentient beings, we compartmentalize constantly–organizing everything we do into […]

Pastel Pop

    While black reigns supreme in my world, occasionally I opt for an unpredictable color pop. During a color urge, I always try to get creative with the styling and wear combinations that challenge my ideas of what work. For this particular look, I wore a GoJane plunge bodysuit, a midi skirt from Boohoo, funky shoes from […]

All Black

    After my brief visit to New York City, my love affair with black-on-black-on-black has only grown. Monochrome is a safe bet, and thanks to Kimmy and her following, we see a lot of neutral palette coordinates and single-tone stylings. While the plain crop top and plain, matched bottoms are a solid ode to minimale, […]

The Dallas Desi Bride Guide

If there’s anything about our culture we love & hate (but secretly love the most still), it’s a big fat Desi wedding. Our weddings are over-the-top, crazy, fun, dramatic, colorful, beautiful, and exhausting. Especially exhausting. While western weddings last maybe a day, our Desi weddings last a weekend, well, technically a month. Yes. It’s true. Our weddings […]

Heritage

    Heritage is that which is given to you by birth; a possession, an identity. It is the struggle of the past, a promise of the future, and the potential of now. I carry these pieces of my culture, my religion, my family, my home everywhere I go. It is embedded in who I am. […]

Hyphenated

  If there is anything to know about me, it is that I love my weird mix of cultures. I unapologetically embrace it, the good and bad, and love to explore my heritage through fashion. It makes me who I am. This outfit in particular felt appropriate for the discussion because it captured how I […]
