Thank you for giving us your precious time. We would like to feature your success story on Mizlink Pakistan, a page for Pakistani women entrepreneurs and professionals. The idea is to promote women entrepreneurs and professionals that could not only enhance their own social circle but also motivate other such women to step up and enter the world of entrepreneurship.
Here are our pages:
Kiran Ejaz of Handcrafted Bridal Bedsheets
What drives you? (What makes you so passionate about your work?)
I love my work; designing is my passion... the energy & satisfaction I get when my clients are happy is what drives me to do even better and better.
How did you get here and how long have you been in this profession (or been doing what you do)?
This is basically my family business. My mom was an entrepreneur and she started her venture of handmade bed sheets in 2000. This was out of her love for handicrafts and artistry; it was initially to help my mother but gradually became my own thing. I realized that I wanted to take it to the next level; we got it online and started to exhibit it.
What has been your vision and what do you most love about your work?
My vision is that one day my brand `Humaira’s collection’ becomes famous and becomes an inspiration for women all over the globe especially Pakistan.
What do you think is your biggest achievement throughout your professional journey?
There is no such thing as a bigger achievement in my dictionary. Every achievement is equal. I have had only a couple of exhibitions so far but all of these have been successful.
What are your current projects and what do you plan on doing in the near future?
My current project is “K.Abayas”, I am also designing these from home and with help of my kaarigar, since Hijabs are a necessity to some there is no reason why they shouldn’t have access to some comfortable and stylish modest wear.
A word of advice you would like to pass on to other women struggling with their startups?
My advice to other women would be to never give up on themselves. Things will not always be easy there will be great difficulties too but patience is the key. A million dollar advice would be “Honesty with your work and your client” if you deliver your possible best, you will get the best possible.
