In the captivating world of bridal couture, few designers possess the ability to transport us to an enchanting era of grace and elegance. Among them stands the virtuoso Fahad Hussayn, a couturier renowned for his meticulous attention to detail and unrivalled artistry.

Hussayn’s latest opus, Hazaron Khuwahishain, emboldens the very essence of heritage and legacy, delving deep into the profound significance of heirloom fashion.

At the core of this opulent creation lies a resplendent dupatta, transcending its status as mere fabric. It assumes the role of a poignant symbol, embodying cherished wishes, aspirations, and tales that traverse generations. Fahad Hussayn’s exceptional craftsmanship weaves a timeless narrative, beckoning us to contemplate the ethereal connections that break away from the constraints of time.

In a captivating collaboration, the extraordinary Pakistani singer, Hadiqa Kiani, merges her soulful vocals with Hussayn’s rich visual tapestry, allowing an immersive experience. Kiani’s unparalleled ability to evoke profound emotions through her music serves as a fitting tribute. Drawing from the roots of the Subcontinent’s musical heritage, she skillfully intertwines Raag Sindhi Bhairavi, Kaafi, and Thumri, crafting an auditory masterpiece that resonates with the very essence of the land.

For Kiani, this composition holds a special place, and she says she felt a deep connection to Hussayn, which led her to contribute her soulful vocals to the Hazaron Khuwahishain music video.


“I always expect the best from Fahad Hussayn,” Hadiqa says. “I’ve known him for a long time and I find him super creative. He is truly a unique soul who understands pure art forms for what they are. The connection we have is love-based, and I feel always connected to him.”

To create the visual narrative, the Fahad Hussayn Academy designed the production, paying homage to the opulent interiors of classical South Asia. With ornate embellishments, vibrant verandas, and a soft pastel palette, the surroundings evoke a sense of nostalgia, transporting viewers to a bygone era and an untold saga. The set design weaves a temporal narrative, unfolding the stories of mothers and daughters through the relentless passage of generations.

True to his distinctive style, Hussayn breathes raw intensity and dramatic flair into Hazaron Khuwahishain. The on-screen performances of Hadiqa Kiani and Sehar Gohar, the talented mother-daughter duo, exude poised elegance and classical grace. Their acting prowess, combined with Maram Azmat’s remarkable makeup artistry, conjures a captivating visual spectacle that enchants the senses.

Reflecting on the collaboration, makeup artist Maram Azmat shares her experience of stepping into the enchanting world of a 1940s period music video.

“With meticulous attention to detail not only in Fahad’s designs but also the set and world he created for this song, I was transported into the era when he shared the storyboard and song with me, and I could immediately envision the makeup,” she said. “I wanted it to capture the essence of an era filled with grace and elegance. I carefully designed Hadiqa’s look so that the makeup and hairstyle match the timelessness associated with the 1940’s. Collaborating with Hadiqa was a joy, and her kindness only amplified the privilege of enhancing her natural beauty. It was a magical experience.”

At its core, Hazaron Khuwahishain stands as a testament to the timeless allure of heirloom fashion and the deep connections we cherish with our heritage. With a masterful touch, Fahad Hussayn’s meticulous craftsmanship and unwavering attention to detail come alive, harmonizing seamlessly with Hadiqa Kiani’s soulful vocals. Together, they weave a symphony that deeply resonates with the depth of our emotions. This captivating fusion of music and visuals serves as a gentle reminder of the enduring elegance and profound significance inherent in our shared cultural legacy.
