Zeshan Bariwala has no life of complacency as a background to make his works of art lack in vibrancy and vivacity. His designs burst forth in all their glory, standing as a testimony to hard work and perseverance. He has a deep-rooted passion for fashion designing and has transcended the limitations of bookish knowledge by applying his skills and techniques at internships with many renowned institutions.
Zeshan has carved for himself a prominent position as a fashion stylist and sales expert extraordinaire, starting his business with heavy bridal orders, which reaped very positive results. The overwhelming positive response led him to extend the scope of his forte to encompass everything bridal.
He follows a refreshingly creative and innovative technique. He prefers to treat each outfit as a blank canvas, and incorporate current themes and individual customer demands to fashion stunning pieces. These, while reflecting current trends, are unique enough to stand out as exquisite pieces amongst a crowd of sometimes banal, regurgitated designs.

Zainab is amongst the most elite and famous fashion designers of the Pakistani fashion industry. She has a massive reputation in bridal wear globally and has showcased her collection in London, Manchester, New York and Dubai.
The house of Zainab Chottani caters for different occasions through Aqua (the fresh, innovative Pret line), couture and bridal (dresses of the season). Zainab Chottani is a powerhouse whose work speaks volumes.
