Ammar is the founding partner of “ONE432”; an "Equal-Share" design philosophy, that matches Every $ Earned with a $ Donated, from each transaction, to its Artisans while sustaining an indigenous shoemaking craft. He continues to serve a select NY clientele with his, “Custom Design - Not Just Tailored”, eponymous menswear label. Ammar was the first individual from the entire South Asia/Middle East region to attend the Parsons MFA Fashion program, accepting only 18 talents in each cohort. His graduate collection earned him a place as a key faculty member within the Parsons Design community. Ammar's trans-disciplinary narrative of teaching in both programs (BFA/MFA Fashion, BBA Business) is part of an evolving vision to explore the harmony between Design, Critical Awareness, and Social Entrepreneurship.
His multicultural articulation of design is a realization of his upbringing in Boston, Geneva, and Lahore (Pakistan). Descending from a family that pioneered the manufacturing in Pakistan, he started his career by launching a Bespoke Denim label, which deciphered traditional couture techniques into street-wear; which evolved into Pakistan’s first luxury Menswear label expanding to 5 flagship stores across the country. Ammar Belal Menswear has won national design awards for “Best Emerging Talent”, “Best Original Song” and “Best Menswear” while being highlighted in the international media.

Hasan Raheem is a singer/songwriter living in Karachi and is originally from Gilgit Pakistan. He emerges with a signature sound with influences from indie, RnB and soul. While Hasan is studying to be a doctor, his music has hit cool supremacy and is turning Pakistani music on its head. Hasan's the next big upcoming talent in PK and his music has the DNA, the indefinable something composed of effortlessness and a deep need and infinite authenticity and lyrical intelligence and intense musicality and the thing that makes him entirely different from every other singer who has ever opened his mouth in Pakistan.
Hasan is innovating the Pakistani sound and Jinnah’s Pakistan is proud to announce a partnership* with Hasan Raheem and work together to promote his music across Pakistan.

Maanu’s album “Yain city” is a masterpiece of Urdu rap, full of new age beats, peerless lyrical flow, optimistic rhymes and authentic storytelling that every Pakistani millennial can relate to. Maanu’s greatest skill and most primary mission is to articulate, in human and local terms, the experience of living in Lahore through the eyes of a Lahori young adult and to create music that reflects the new contemporary change that Lahore is currently undergoing. Maanu’s rap on “Yain city” is incredibly well-timed, rhythmic, laid back but forceful and his recitation is so effortless that it marries perfectly with the beat leaving the audience wondering where he breathes, or if he does at all.
“We felt like there were no artists who were reflecting our feelings or lives and I wanted to change that. That’s where the idea of Yain and Yain City came from. The aim has always been to make authentic and real music that reflects who I am as a person and my emotions and experiences in life. I believe when one is authentic, they’re also much more relatable and that’s something that I will always give importance to.” - Maanu.
Jinnah’s Pakistan is proud to announce a partnership with Maanu and work together to broadcast his music to the masses in Pakistan.

Shorbanoor is one of the pioneers of indie music in Pakistan and is the former frontman of the veteran indie art rock band Poor Rich Boy and has performed all across Pakistan and has also toured US with the band. Shorbanoor is always comfortable at constantly experimenting with his musical essence, and as a result, he inadvertently continues to redefine the indie genre in South Asia and this has created a cult following for him within the local indie music scene in Pakistan.
Shorbanoor is Pakistan's rare talent residing comfortably on the outskirts of mainstream culture but successfully influencing the music scene from an original and unique creative style that represents the new wave of Pakistani vocals in english. Shorbanoor has been rock-n-rollin' on the background for sometime, patiently laying the foundations of an experimental vibe and we think "Prelude to Murder" is a precursor to the musical genius that lies ahead.
Jinnah’s Pakistan is proud to announce a partnership* with Shorbanoor and work together to promote his music across Pakistan.
