3) How does the design concept of the studio reflect your own personality and the brand’s image?

The inspiration behind the design was Lahore, its Mughal and British raj history. The name manzil was always in my mind and it was natural for us to use and it went hand in hand with our brand ethos and identity.

4) What is the one unique thing about Manzil that sets it apart from others ?

Manzil right now is one of a kind stand alone bridal studio. It welcomes walk in clients for ready to order Bridals and also has a beautiful area for by-appointment luxury Bridals. The prices of luxury Bridals has become very high yet the experience is still not up to the mark and we wanted to start that before every one else.

6) how do you think bridal wear has evolved in Pakistan in the last 5 year and what trends are you foreseeing for 2017/2018?

Even though because of social media bridal wear has because very run of the mill. Brands have made Bridals into a factory product. We still believe in love, and family and relationships come before everything else, and the bride has to feel all of that when getting married. We welcome the families when they come with the bride, we take pride in the process of ordering your bridal. You get to do this once in your life and the experience should also be very very personal and special.
