Shubinak’s “Pakistan United” collection, S/S 2015 

 "Our inspiration is based on Socio environmental activism. We see so much divide among different groups in Pakistan be it ethnic, regional, economical, political, intellectual or religious. We have tried to highlight by amalgamating crafts of Pakistan in our collection to showcase the need for national harmony and the realization that, despite our differences, we all can live together and enjoy our lives while focusing on real issues which affect us and our future generations. The main elements include 100% organic hand loomed fabric patented as “Fabric of Life” that talks about reforestation through its warp and weave, maps of Baluchistan and Pakistan to show the divide and the many diverse embroideries and embellishments from all over the nation.“
