Exclusive Interview with Amna Syed

Amna Syed designs ethos is based on the philosophy of reconstructing vintage art forms to create eternally relevant pieces steeped in culture and heritage. Amna founded her signature label back in 2007 after graduating in fashion field from Kinnaird College for women. Later on, she did fashion courses from Gulberg National College & also did diploma in cuts and drapes from London school of fashion designing on line. Within this short span of time, she became renowned for her artistic intuition.


Amna syed has proven her sensibilities for vintage eastern glamour creations. Her signature style is just flawless whether it is bridal collections, pret wear, semi-formal, formal outfits or evening wears.


She has also showcased her outfits on many ramps in the country and were highly appreciated by the audiences.


See what she said about her fashion journey.

1. How did your journey as a designer start?
Well my journey commenced some more than a decade back. It was the period when designer wear was peeping into female minds only. Men were totally aloof from this synthesis.
Only big names such as Miras, Imbias, and HSY with a few more were on tips. I was educated in the fashion field after my graduation from Kinnaird College for women. I did my courses from Gulberg National College in Fashion sciences from Lahore. I did my online diploma in cuts and drapes from London school of Fashion designing.
Being a graduate in psychology helped me a lot to read the female mind sets. There I started using my skills since sitting idle was not my cup of tea!


2. If you were not a designer, you were?
If not a designer aaaaah! I would have been a psychologist, a marriage councellor or may be hit short heighted model like Amna Haq or Babra!

3. Who motivated and inspired you to become a designer?
My confidence in destiny, positive approach and applauds given by my friends and family motivated me I guess. Here I can’t miss to state my husband Syed Ahmad who always quoted “you are wasting your talent”. My daughter / son can’t be ignored specially But my daughter always paved room for me to work & compromised very sensibly to accommodate, without her I was incomplete. But my daughter’s decisions are the one I count on in this field. Her sharp and critique eye and presence in rush times makes it happen actually that was why I named by brand Amna Syed by نور as I see a future for my brand in her 💕.

4. What is your designing philosophy?
My designing philosophy is proportion. Less is more!

5. Are you a feminist? And does your design solely focus on woman as an individual?
No not at all. Am not a feminist! A man woman composition completes the beauty and flavor in life. This composed creation of opposite genders is the real vanity!

6. Do you think Pakistani fashion industry is on the right track and what is its future?
Pakistani industry is on the absolute right track. We definitely need more consultants accompanied by professionals to roll it to the height.


7. Have you ever felt jealous of your competitors in profession?
Not jealous ever yet. In fact every good designer creation with rich content gives me positive energy and opportunity to learn better.


8. What role you think is fashion playing in improving the image and circumstances of Pakistan?
Our fashion industry is promoting the positive image of Pakistan. Besides bringing in foreign currency and balancing economy, it will glitter the advanced approach towards this part of Asia.

9. Any message that you want to give to our youth?
Oh yes! Young lot never compromise on your positive dreams. Seeking expensive overseas education is impossible for everyone. Seek a talent, it never fails. Patience is the key to talent mechanism.


Amna’s couture and pret are exclusively custom made and available by appointment only. To ensure booking please place your order well because pieces are delicately crafted and it may require some time depending on the order size and style. Orders can be shipped internationally as well.



And there we go with the lady behind all the beautiful designs. Yes! Amna Syed

Fashion Unchained 4 at PC Peshawar

The recent show which I have attended held at PC Peshawar, which turned out to be a huge event in its own. Media sniffers once again set the stage on fire and arranged a very well fashion show named as the Fashion Unchained 4. I had also attended their previous show in Peshawar but this time the response I came to see from the audience was overwhelmed. People from all walks of life attended the show.

See who the designers were and how they showcased their dresses.

Fareeha’s Collection:

Models were looking beautiful wearing Fareeha. But there were few outfits which were old fashioned or we can say that having unsuitable work over them. Few of them were simple and amazing. But not all……



Super Model Mahaa Kanwal Khan and Cybil Chaudry were looking flawless as always. They both know how to carry the outfits and make it presentable. I am a huge fan of them because of the same reason.





Mayr’s Collection:

This collection was also not up to the mark. Just because of not fulfilling the latest demand of the fashion. Few outfits that were showcased on the ramp were marvelous but not all of them.



Here it comes to the showstoppers Mahaa Kanwal Khan and Cybil Chaudry. Both the beauties were looking marvelous. But when it comes to the outfits, those were the best among the Mayr’s Collection at Fashion Unchained 4.


Desire Couture by Mansoor Rajput:

Mansoor Rajput is young fashion designer who loves to play with the pastor colors. And to be honest his collection was the most amazing collection there at Fashion Unchained 4.

His collection comprises of both male and female outfits. And all of them were flawless in all aspects.

Some of the glimpses are as follow.







I am in love with the details of Desire Couture by Mansoor Rajput that super model Mahaa Kanwal showcased.




Mian Muhammad Abbas’s Collection:

His mostly collection was in black. And I was totally in love with his collection. He really deserves appreciation for his creativity.

Shazia Kiani’s Collection:

Shazia kiani always gives us shock with her collection. Her collection was superb and marvelous. I was totally in love with the details of the outfits. No doubt she is the best designer of Pakistan.









Choreography and Coordination was done by Harry Majid of Harry Events and PR.



Suleman Latif is new and very talented Fashion coordinator in Pakistan’s Fashion Industry.



Production partner of Media Sniffers for Fashion Unchained 4 were Abbi Photography. And he is one of the finest photographers of the industry. I really admire his efforts for his work.


I Found JAPAN In Lahore….!

Being a food lover and an explorer, i was blessed to taste and try European, Asian and African cuisines during my travels around the world; but Pakistani chefs have always sublimed my taste buds.


Being a typical Pakistani my longing for native Pakistani restaurants and their fusion international food has always inspired me, being away from my country for over two decades now.

In my days in Pakistan i.e in 80 ‘s and 90’s, Chinese restaurants were our only deviation from a routine house meal, but now in my recent travels to Pakistan I was astonished to see a number of international cuisine restaurants making their way into weekend luxury meals of almost every household.


It was a foggy evening in Lahore, the city of fascinations, when one of my friends mentioned the the new culinary wave, a Japanese Restaurant – Asian Aroma, Park Lane Hotel famous for its gourmet dining — something you can only authentically eat in that one place. The friendly manager led us through the hall with a flexible layout for both bar and traditional table settings. The neutral color was complimenting the fine dining experience and yet soothing to the eye and sophisticated enough for the cuisine in hand. I lowered my eyes on menu pages, which were thick with a variety of Japanese, and English names and that seemed only to get more densely crosshatched as time went on, and for good reason as all were mouthwatering to choose from.


The dozen or so meals I could recognize from my previous experiences in Japanese restaurants had been a marvel of consistent variation, ringing fluid changes of texture and flavor on those three little words that define the cuisine of this island nation at its heart: ISO no aji, or “tastes like ocean spray.”

To my dismay I could not choose after going through the menu at least three times. I guess Chef Abdullah from across the bar tables could see the frustration and came to our rescue. He not only recommend some of the hot favorites but also the explained about the ingredients and origins of the dishes.

We were happy to finally place our order and were left to enjoy the chitchat in peace. But that was not for long, quite soon, in fact precisely after twenty minutes the aromatic and beautifully presented dishes were laid out before us by a humble gentleman Shehzad.


A wide variety of vegetarian and non veg foods were served in small portions, using one of five standard cooking techniques as mentioned by Chef Abdullah. All foods were divided into five color groups (green, red, yellow, white, and black-purple) and six tastes (bitter, sour, sweet, hot, salty, and delicate). Two uniquely Japanese foods are sushi (fresh raw seafood with rice) and sashimi (fresh raw seafood with soy sauce); both rely on freshly caught fish or seafood and Asian Aroma ensures that. Dishes prepared in a single pot (nabemeno ) was the real fascination. Sukiyaki the dish made up of paper-thin slices of beef (or sometimes chicken), vegetables, and cubes of tofu cooked in broth was divine. Shabu-shabu the beef and vegetables, also cooked in broth but then dipped in flavorful sauces. A gulp of green tea followed by a mouthful of chopstick picked portion of sea Was a whole new Japanese experience with a delicate flavored taste of ritual and I will bother them again for sure during my next visit to Pakistan.
