Academy Award Winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s (SOC) debut international production, “Humaira; The Dream Catcher” premiered at the ‘Chime for Change’ Campaign founded by Gucci and co-hosted by Hollywood Actress Salma Hayek Pinault, musician John Legend, and Mariane Pearl along with our very own SOC in London. While we can’t wait to watch the documentary film, we are happy to bring you a look at our star ambassador for women wearing signature Misha Lakhani to the prestigious event.

Sharmeen has always opted for original Pakistani designers be it Sania Maskatiya when she was still a rising star or the one of the founding pillars of our industry; Bunto Kazmi. For this honor SOC shined while supporting another star in the making. Misha Lakhani signature separates in ivory and soothing floral prints were the perfect fusion ensemble to represent our country’s multi-talented realm of style. She paired the jacket with the designer’s shadow work silk camisole top and sheer layered, pleated chiffon skirt for a feminine understated look. The final touch was the stunning statement emerald and gold traditional necklace. We’re sure she got plenty of compliments on the piece and the entirely one of a kind look.

The film celebrates the efforts of Humaira Bachal, an activist and educationalist based in the Muwach Goth area of Karachi, Pakistan. As a child, Humaira fought against her family and community in order to gain an education, and is now making education accessible to other children in Muwach Goth. Through her unwavering determination and unbreakable spirit, Humaira has successfully educated over 1200 children and is working tirelessly to change current attitudes towards education in her community. The Dream Foundation School charges its students a nominal fee of one cent per day.

At the premiere of ‘HUMAIRA’, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy said, “As a social justice documentary filmmaker I wanted to make a film about education that would make audiences sit up and smile with hope. Humaira Bachal’s life and struggles to provide education to the young women in her community is inspiring not only because she leads from the front, but also because her no nonsense attitude forces the men in her community to listen to what she has to say. I think her message would resonate with people around the world, especially women on the front lines who risk their lives every single day to kick open new doors for the next generation.”

Congratulations Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and thank you for taking on the task of making this inspirational film!
