Born in Karachi and raised in the rustic village of Haaripur, this womenswear designer draws inspiration for his clothes from his childhood memories spent living close to nature. According to Isthiaq, everything about the quaint idyllic setting of Haaripur stirs his creativity, including the colors, birds, trees, people and culture. Apart from his love for fashion design, Ishtiaq is also a passionate painter and sculptor. After graduating from Karachi University with a degree in Fine Arts, along with some short fashion courses, Ishtiaq made his debut at the Sky Fashion Showcase 2012. Furthermore, he has also exhibited his innovative designs at Pakistan London fashion week 2011 and 2012. Now based in Karachi, his current project is working on expanding his ingenious and original label and going into production with seasonal ready-to-wear collections. His cutting-edge designs are available at Modas and Brands Just Prêt in Karachi and at Abida Parveen Gallery and Ramp in Islamabad.
