With many fashion designers emerging, Asma Waqar stands out amongst the others without a doubt. With a passion for fashion and amazing ideas, we caught up with Asma and talked to her about style, fashion and much more.
The Blush Works: Tell us about yourself and your brand.
Asma Waqar: Though I don’t have any formal degree in fashion designing, I always had an eye for fashion and designed clothes for my daughter and other family members. After my kids grew up I suddenly had plenty of spare time at my hands. So, I joined IVY that is already a brand run by my sister in law.
Thats how FLORA started!
In Pakistan you don’t find too many options for western wear, that too affordable, so Flora is a fusion of western and eastern wear. For women who work or go to college and who don’t have time to get clothes stitched, it is a great option to get ready-to-wear trendy clothes for work or even party wear.
