On Sunday, international star Abbas Hasan surprised the audience at Pakistan Fashion Week London when he appeared down the catwalk as the celebrity showstopper to close Rana Noman’s grand finale show. Abbas emerged onto the ramp looking like a prince in a regal Rana Noman couture sherwani with opulent gold embroidery and jewel detailing.
The entire look of the collection evoked lavish Mughal fantasies and Abbas was the perfect crowning maharaja. The star spoke of the experience: “It’s a pleasure to be Rana Noman’s showstopper. His work is pure quality and you can see how much effort has gone into every piece. I think he’s brilliant and I absolutely love his work.”
Best known for his number 1 hits as a singer and even as an actor, Abbas seemed at ease going back to his modelling roots. Freshly back from touring across Europe alongside Shreya Ghoshal, it was even more of a surprise for audience members to catch Abbas on the runway as he has been busy with the release of his brand new single “Away” which is produced by Rishi Rich.
The song has only just been released but is already spreading like wildfire with rave reviews. Directed by the talented Adnan Qazi, the music video is causing a huge sensation and stars the glamorous Humaima Malick as Abbas’s love interest.
After performing at Priyanka Chopra’s film premiere, doing an advert with Shahrukh Khan and being selected as the “hot new artist” by Times of India to perform at this year’s TOIFA’s, Abbas has had a busy couple of months.
The young star said: “It’s so exciting finally releasing ‘Away’ to the world. I’m overwhelmed by the amazing response. Lots of love to all my habibis around the world!”
Abbas’s appearance as Rana Noman’s showstopper was certainly memorable, and music fans can look forward to Abbas Hasan’s “Away” hitting TV screens in Pakistan in the coming days.
