What is your vision for the future of pret in pakistan ?
Itâ€™s very promising at the moment-the concept of pret has taken the country by storm in the past few years and everybody has cosied upto the idea of picking up ready to wear rather than getting their own stuff stitched and with so much talent pouring in the industry itâ€™s seemingly a bright long trail for retail and pret wear in the country!

Those caramel bows on the sleeves are exquisite along with the delicate fringing along the hemline.
Loving the metallic shimmer on the eyes and the loose waves
Loving the Icy hues on Zainab here especially when coupled with those sparkling Loubs!
That carmine pout and Jimmy Choo Clutch finishes the look off perfectly
WeÂ love us some pearls so the cuffs on this shirt have us sold! A deeper lip and elegant pants round the whole look off to a tee!
Just the right amount of frill elevates this outfit without the fuss! A pale pink lip and Bottega clutch provides the right accents for an evening look
