Of divas and doodles

An evening of glitz and glamour, with beautiful models sashaying down in stunning dresses was hosted by the fashion industry of Pakistan recently. Sounds of the constant clicks came out of cameras belonging to the best of Pakistani photographers, looking for that perfect shot of the day. Fashion enthusiasts, journalists and socialites mingled, clapped and discussed the good, bad and ugly. And then there was Sana Nasir sitting with tiny papers in her bag along with pens and markers borrowed from people at the event, she got down to doing what she is best at.

“I love people; I think they make the most interesting subjects. Particularly when I can observe them from a distance in their most natural state, without them noticing me. Recently I was invited to Fashion Pakistan Week 4, which is easily one of the most glamorous things I've ever been to. For me, the most interesting divas however, were in the crowd and I just couldn't resist the temptation to make quick sketches of them,” explains Nasir.

Here is her personal take on the people at the event.

(Sana Nasir is an illustrator/graphic designer who refuses to take high paying jobs at ad agencies. Among her other bad life choices is the fact that she can draw and often does so without permission.. More of her work can be viewed on
