Some people deserve a little more recognition than others and to recognize the achievements of outstanding people who have made a mark in their fields, President HUM Network, Sultana Siddiqui has announced that the QMobile HUM Style Awards 2016 will additionally be honoring two icons of the industry tomorrow. These are not Lifetime Achievement Awards, which are usually bestowed at the end of one’s career, rather awards granted for continuing excellence. This year’s Excellence Awards will be bestowed on:
- Bunto Kazmi for Excellence in the field of Designing
- Nabila Maqsood for Excellence in the field of Styling
“I would like to initiate this award and make it a regular feature in HUM Style Awards to appreciate people who have done well in the fashion industry,” Sultana Apa said. “Bunto Kazmi is an icon who has created a niche for herself as a top designer, remaining consistently popular in the fashion world. She is a pioneer in bridal couture and her opulent clothes are sought after even today. Nabila is an also an iconic hair & make-up stylist, having worked her way to the top through sheer hard work, setting an example for the newcomers in her field. In more than two decades of her career, she has received many awards.”
Nabila can be credited for having pioneered style in Pakistan with her trendsetting vision and knack for business. Her career spans more than three decades and after winning numerous accolades she just recently stepped out of competing at the LSAs. She said she would be putting her efforts into mentoring new talent. Nabila’s recent partnership with Hunar Foundation, similarly, emphasizes on providing vocational training to individuals and building a more skilled Pakistan. Following the same spirit, Nabila feels that she should no longer be considered a contender for awards in hair and makeup. She hopes, instead, that a platform like the QMobile Hum Style Awards can support her in identifying and encouraging promising newcomers in her field.
