The Pakistani designer Maheen Khan has created period costumes for the upcoming silver screen re-adaptation of Walt Disney’s animated classic film ‘Cinderella’.

According to Pakistan media reports, the designer behind the homegrown high-street brand Gulabo has crafted intricately hand embroidered coats for the male lead of the movie played by the Scottish stage, film and television actor Richard Madden.

Known for her modern innovative silhouettes and truck art-inspired creations, the designer’s first tryst with the West started in 1997 when she assisted the BAFTA award-winning costume designer Diane Holmes on the biographical movie ‘Jinnah’.

The designer helped in creating clothes for the 1998 epic film’s characters Ratti and Fatima Jinnah. Later, Maheen and Holmes collaboratively founded the traditional apparel embroidery specializing firm Embroidery House.

The Pakistani talent has done costume embellishments for the BBC serial ‘The Aristocrat’ and the design atelier Catherine Walker & Co’s seasonal collections. Her movie projects include ‘Alexander’ (2004), ‘Snow White and the Huntsmen’ (2012) and the latest Angelina Jolie starrer ‘Maleficent’.

Diane Holmes, who won the BAFTA Best Costume Design award for the 1984 film ‘The Jewel in the Crown’, has designed costumes for television movies like ‘In His Life: The John Lennon Story’, ‘The Apocalypse Watch’ and ‘The Secret Garden’.

Scheduled to be released on March 13, 2015, the American live action romantic fantasy movie ‘Cinderella’ stars Lily James as Ella (Cinderella) and Cate Blanchett as Lady Tremaine (The Wicked Stepmother). (PB)
