Maria Belal is an ambitious young Pakistani designer with vision. A graduate of the Pakistan School of Fashion Design, Maria launched her label ‘Maria B’ in Lahore few years back. Right after the fashion show in Pakistan, she opened the doors to her new women’s boutique in Karachi. Her cotton shalwar kameez, choori daar pajama, and embroidered evening wear, all meticulously cut and stitched, were quickly snapped up by trendy Lahoris.
This year the designer has introduced four different kinds of lawn, “Every year we see the lawn business growing. I have brought four different varieties of prints. The first one is traditional, which is very regional. The second line is a fusion line which is ethnic and funky. The third is what one can call a western collection, it has the English rose print and for the younger lot, I have brought in a funky collection.” Butt believes that most of her clients are young girls.
