Models Mushk Kaleem and Alicia Khan are all set to walk the ramp at the Milan Fashion Week for Italian designer Stella Jean. Mushk also won the Lux Style Award this year for Best Emerging Talent in Fashion.
Taking to social media, Mushk shared that she is en route Milan for the fashion week. She also said that she is “immensely honoured and proud” to represent the country at an international level.
Speaking to a local media outlet, Mushk shared that the opportunity arose when the designer Stella Jean visited Pakistan earlier this year. The designer not only took inspiration from Pakistani heritage and culture but also decided to incorporate Pakistani models into her showcase.
Mushk revealed that the vetting process was long and tedious because everything was very detailed.
“There is a certain standard size and height that has to be met for a model to be accepted into the fashion week. We also sent images from the ramp, fashion shoots and videos,” she shared.
Meanwhile, model Alicia Khan will also be going with Mushk to the fashion week. She also shared a picture of herself on board.
The Milan Fashion Week, established in 1958, is part of the global “Big Four Fashion Weeks”, the others being Paris Fashion Week, London Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week. The schedule begins with New York, followed by London, and then Milan, and ending with Paris.
Recognised as the first Black Italian designer, Stella Jean lives and works in Rome and is considered to be Giorgio Armani’s protégé. In 2019 she was highlighted by the New York Times as the most convincing of all the New Gen designers in Milan.
