All my work with Royalty and Celebrities has been very private. I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to work with them. I recollect Benazir Bhutto asking me to stitch some outfits from a fabric she had bought. To the horror of her aides, I said to her “these are awful, I can’t do anything with them” I ended up designing a capsule collection for her and most importantly the outfit she was to wear at her Swearing-in as the first female Prime minister of Pakistan however, the issue was the dupatta! It kept slipping off as she was not in the habit of wearing one. I gave her a fine white muslin to drape over her head, having first stitched a tiny comb to secure it on her head. The green outfit and white dupatta are now on display at Madame Tussauds.- Maheen Khan
