Since the party/ wedding season is in full swing, let’s first talk fashion. On the desi front, many of the 80s and 90s stalwarts, like the peshwas, tasseled dupatta, longer kameeze and shalwars, from the wide pancha (cuff) ones to cowl and full on dhoti, have been brought back by designers after the recent successful revival of ghararas, angarkhas and tulip style shalwars, albeit in a more tailored form. On the western front, corduroy is also back from the 70s and 80s, though its wales are more plush and luminous and the fabric is softer. Cleverly, fashion designers reimagine and change up the style enough so you can’t really pull out your old clothes from their mothballs, but have to go out and buy the new version. With the glut on the high street of fast fashion and over-priced bespoke wedding outfits, designers are scrambling for fresh ideas and one easy way is looking to the past for inspiration, change it up a bit and serve.

In this our last issue of the year, we catch up with Farhan Saeed and Urwa Hocane as they celebrate their second wedding anniversary. Ramsha Khan tells us how she managed to turn around her acting career after her debut movie didn’t even make it to the big screen. Peppy Anmol Baloch and Sonya Hussain share how they traverse the tumultuous path of social media as celebs. And lastly, but certainly not least, artist Sana Kazi teaches us about Islamic art.

On a personal note, this is my last issue as the editor of Good Times. I had a great experience keeping in touch with all the GT readers. The New Year will start with a new editor working to bring you interesting stories from the world over. Take care. I’ll see you around.

Good Times
