Having first started with one small stitching unit in Lahore, today, we are fortunate to be Pakistan’s most diverse designer fashion brand with prêt a porter, couture, formal wear, lawn, embroidered fabrics and cottons all within one affordable label. Our ethos has always been to provide multiple ranges of affordable designer fashion for women and in this same vein, based on the feedback of our patrons, we introduce our new designer embroidered silk, Mbroidered, as the first designer collection based in embroidered silks. With our new line, we endeavor to reveal new Mbroidered collections every 2 months and we look forward to introducing more brand lines, extension and innovations throughout the year.”
