'TEEJAYS' womenswear and menswear collection for Fashion Week, entitled "TEEJAYS EVOLUTION", which was inspired by the forty years of fashion showcased at PFDC Fashion Week Karachi.
TEEJAYS was started in 1970 as a movement by Tanvir Jamshed in order to create affordable fashion for all - to break down the trend of obvious disparity in the way the nation dressed. Feeha Jamshed joined her father Tanvir’s movement and while her signature is similar to the TEEJAYS brand aesthetic, it is distinct in that she emphasises specifically on the cut, simplicity and the style of her designs. TEEJAYS has in the past been a recipient of the prestigious Lux Style Award and the Indus Style Award for Lifetime Achievement. Tanvir Jamshed was awarded the Sitar-i-Imtiaz, the highest civilian award in Pakistan, owing to his contribution to fashion thus making him the only fashion designer or label to have ever received such an honour.
At the debut PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week in February 2010, fashion designer Feeha Jamshed showcased a Prêt-à-porter collection for her brand TEEJAYS, entitled ‘Diamond City’. The collection focused on womenswear along with pieces for men, inspired by Lahore, which the designer has interpreted as a city that is indeed a ‘diamond’ in every sense: culturally, historically, physiologically and politically. In this ode to Lahore, Feeha Jamshed’s emphasis lay in the cuts and cotton fabric, Pakistan’s national export.
