Weekend was fun yesterday. I was invited at Jinnah convention centre Islamabad, There was an event organized by Pakistan’s most circulated newspaper Dawn. “Dawn Lifestyle Exhibition 2015” went awesome. I was also invited at Dawn News Channel’s morning show in Karachi but somehow missed that live morning show. Anyways! I visited there with my family & blogger friends. It was great to meet new people, I enjoyed a lot. I thought to capture some clicks related art & craft thingies just to share with my blogger friends worldwide.
So are you ready to see event highlights? Let’s see
Dawn Lifestyle Exhibition 2015 Islamabad
Stalls with handmade items were one of my favorite to capture!
These hand painted wooden jewelry boxes are amazing, You might remember my article in which I share some of Multani arts & crafts like these!
Pakistani Truck Art inspired hand painted items, these lanterns are amazing! Pakistani truck art is wonderful.
These combs are so cute, Remember once I design the same wooden combs with Mehndi-Henna design tattoo.
Some cute home accessories & pillows. Textile items are so pretty! I wanted to buy ALL of them haha
These Multani Handicrafts are unique.
This stall is all about hand embroidery items, shirts, shawls, hand bags, bed sheets & other home accessories. just WOW! I want these ALL..
These handcrafted keychains with colorful embroidery objects! how pretty!
Have a look at these wooden accessories. These are painted with colorful & intricate designs. OMG these painted elephants are so cute!
Artist & craftsmen are super hardworking. These art pieces are one of kind. Designed minutely with paint & brushes.
This photo frame is also designed with hand embroidery. How neatly done it is.
This huge wall art was painted on wooden sticks mat. You can see small mirrors on the border too. I will be making a similar wall art for my niece’s bedroom. But first I have to find a wooden mat like this :)
These dresses were nice but pricey as compared to local market. But they look stylish.
Some handicrafts sellers were from northern areas of Pakistan.
And a blogger friend of mine found her class fellow’s stall there, She was selling ready to wear dresses.
Chandeliers are always eye catchy, Right? That was a shop with home accessories & other great products!
Dog show was also organized there. My brother was almost grabbing me towards some beautiful dogs & some horrible ones too for capturing their pics but I was afraid to see when there were two dogs of different breed suddenly started fight. Haha! I captured a click of two pairs of innocent dogs. Funny? Lol..
Cute dogs? Kids were very happy to see these pets. Mostly dogs were friendly though.
There were many stalls with food & technology stuff. But I capture less clicks of those as I were not so excited about those. I hope you can understand a Creative Mind. haha
It was nice meeting new people & bloggers from my city Islamabad. I am glad to meet Sehrish who is a craft blogger from my city. Luckily I had my business cards with me, So I exchange with them. I will be sharing how I made my business cards the most easy way! They look fabulous as well. I enjoyed to see when a cosmetics brand spokes person appreciated that by saying “How cute is this” :)
I hope you enjoyed this arty crafty press release of Dawn Lifestyle Exhibition 2015. It was great to be a part of it :)
Have a great day!
