CARACHI: What happens when celebrities venture into starting businesses unrelated to their field? Whether MbyMahira there is something to be said, it caused a real divide on social networks. Mahira Khan recently launched her clothing line which she describes as “Creating conscious and minimalist wardrobes, one timeless piece at a time”. However, between the designs and the hefty price tags attached to its pieces, not everyone is amused by the commercial enterprise.

THE clothing line was launched on February 12 and the brand’s philosophy is described as “timeless pieces you’ll buy now, but love forever”. A note from the founder herself explained, โ€œAs far as I can remember, I feel most like myself in simple white kurtas. I could wear them everyday, forever. I hope these pieces do the same for you, because there’s no better feeling than feeling like you.

Mahira Khan wasn’t kidding when she said MbyMahira was minimalist. All products are white, with sparse details on the sleeves or neckline. Other items include plain white kurtas which are oversized and are mardana (men’s clothing) in their cuts. But it’s not the designs that everyone is talking about, it’s the price tag attached to the clothes that has left jaws dropping. A cotton kurtas costs almost 13,000 rupees on its own, which would have made sense if the amount of embroidery matched the high price, a simple silk mardana the suit priced at almost Rs.25,000 also raised eyebrows, as did the scalloped bottom priced at over Rs.6000.

Many have taken to social media to voice their opinions on MbyMahira. Some pointed out that the only people who seemed to carry the mark were those who got them for free.

Many have looked at the prices.

Some took the prices as a challenge to prove how overpriced the brand is:
