Noted Jewellery designer Kiran Aman chose a novel way of celebrating her nine-year success in the field. She asked nine extraordinary female photographers to exhibit their work and compiled it in a book ‘Kam Sukhan’ considered a must-add to the coffee table collection
Her brand Kiran Fine Jewellery (KFJ) has earned fame and recognition. The book ‘Kam Sukhan’ which was launched at Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Karachi, won her new friends.
A complimentary copy of ‘Kam Sukhan’ was presented to all the guests in the launching ceremony and they were highly appreciative of the book, being an arrangement of nine photographers’ images and stories behind them. The theme of Kiran’s work, the book and the celebration was described as the essence of women.
From her inhibitions, struggles, and fears, you’ll learn of patience, forbearance and resolve; and in time you will find that her spirit, ever-daunted, is a pearl made of steel,” Kiran observed.
She designs jewellery pieces calling them “extensions of her” and works only in gold as its strength, warmth and malleability are authentic representations of the women wearing her brand. The dexterous clickers were each given a white, diagonal wall to showcase their images and a chance to speak about their work.
While each lady had her own style, some that stood out were mirror, cloth and canvas printing; projections, reflections and papers were also used; and every single photograph was excellent in its own way.
The team of ‘Kam Sukhan’ welcomed guests and directed them to the temp photo gallery bustling with people, including celebrities like Mahira Khan, Feeha Jamshed, Nida Azwer, Misha Lakhani, Maheen Khan, Tofiq Pasha and Adnan Pardesy.
The guest of honour, model-actor Aamina Sheikh also appreciated the photography of each woman. She spoke in length about womanhood and how the work displayed in Kam Sukhan captures the beauty of women.
“To me ‘Kam Sukhan’ was an awakening; I felt that the fate of womanhood and this planet is one, also because it is the woman who channelises life on earth,” Aamina remarked.
