1. Low-Cal Delights
Our favourite fitness centre and gym, IronBox, has launched its own health barâ€”Daggyâ€™s. All about breaking the norm when it comes to low-cal food, Daggyâ€™s is committed to providing scrumptious, yet healthy, meals. FFrom whole-wheat beef burgers, to New York style chicken and rice platters or energy booster protein shakes, Daggyâ€™s is the place to go.
2. For the Love of Art
Acclaimed Pakistani artist Imran Qureshi’s solo show titled “The Seeming Endless Path of Memory” has opened in Paris at the coveted Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac Paris Pantin. The title and the works on display echo words of Pakistani poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz, which are prevailing throughout Qureshi’s work. They reveal various social and cultural connotations and subtly reflect the threat of violence as a continuous motif. We are proud of our artists representing Pakistan abroad.
3. Our eye on Fashion
International design house Etro has captured our attention over the past few weeks through its very noticeable presence on various red carpetsâ€”from creative experimentation at the Met Gala to more traditional (yet inspired) looks for both men and women at the Cannes Film Festival 2019. We love how the brand has successfully imbibed old school motifs into forward-fashion. As their hashtag says, it’s definitely #EtroEverywhere
4. Cartoons with a Purpose
SOC Films, helmed by two-time Academy Award winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, has announced the launch of their latest animated series “Shattering the Silence,â€ which focuses on raising awareness about social issues faced by children in Pakistan today. This 4-part series will focus on real life stories to educate children, the first of which is â€œCheena Hua Bachpan” and can be viewed on Youtube.
