Azim Khan is a fairly new but much endowed Karachi-born (Pakistan) London based designer, who has on his portfolio, ample amount of professional experience and all the proficiency that makes him a star to watch out for. An entirely new, unique fashion wears neither totally eastern nor totally western, but a quite different East-West combination.
