It might seem like a case of dèja vu for the design team of Naz, Amber and Amna  Varsy at the iconic bridal and luxury prêt retail label RESHAM REVAJ. Years ago they dressed the late Madam Noorjehan  in  her now legendary silk chiffon and tissue sarees and recently they provided similar vintage sarees to TV and film actress Saba Qamar for her portrayal of Malika-e-Tarannum  Noor Jehan in director/ actor Sarsmad Khoosat’s  period film ‘Manto.

“When Sarmad’s  production team approached us to dress  the talented Saba Qamar for her portrayal of Madam Noor Jehan  we were very excited,” exults  Amber Varsy,  “We took down my mother’s  vintage saree  trunk because our label was around during that era when Madame Noor Jehan  wore those sarees, We provided Saba with original silk chiffon and tissue sarees  which are no longer in fashion and not easily available,” Amber adds.

“My outfits play a major role in my character’s development,” explains Saba.  “From  the jewellery to the costumes -especially the sarees – everything was just in place for me to be able to act like Madam Noor  Jehan. The wardrobe really helped me to look like and reenact Madam’s mannerisms,” Saba adds glowingly.

Resham Revaj has been an arbiter of style and taste amongst  Pakistan’s fashion retail scenario for over  30 years since the label’s initial inception in 1983 as ‘Resham ‘which was  renowned for  its quintessentially eastern bridal and evening wear.  Resham was soon followed in 1989 by Revaj  which offered women elegant  semi-formal and ready-to-wear options.
