Style Clinic - Wardrobe Mayhem
#1
Style Clinic by Astin Brown Inc is inviting you to a ‘wardrobe mayhem’ clinic.

The Style Clinic is a fundraiser event to support the campaign to raise money for ‘Stopping violence against women, in Pakistan’.


The Style Clinic

Please bring along a piece hanging in your wardrobe, accessory or shoes that you haven’t worn, you admire but it feels like a ‘wrong buy’ for you.
AND
Something you look and feel fabulous wearing.

In using your own props we will share style secrets so you know what works for your shape and identity and what is translating as a ‘faux pas’.

Without any ego, and lots of fun we promise plenty of show and tell. Looking spectacular all of the time is fine tuning what you feel most comfortable wearing.


For 2 hours

You will be in clinic, sipping on the Meritus Mandarin’s Signature ‘Honey Perrier’ and nibbling something as equally sumptious.

Astin Brown Inc

Style Clinic by Astin Brown Inc was conceived from conversations with our media, publishing and luxury market corporate clients who engaged our consultants for style and image clinics as part of their annual training plans. Your Stylist: Tahnya Butterfield-Gill guides shopping and culture tours, writes irreverent fashion stories, is an avid personal shopper and helps her clients look great in colour and their bag of skin. She has managed a lazy bottom for a long time. Her belief is taking time on what we put on the outside can run deep on what’s happening on the inside: its osmosis.

Supporting Stopping violence against women, in Pakistan
The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan reported that in 2005 more than 800 women had been killed for alleged breaches of “honour”. Many cases went unreported and victims included very young girls. In June a tribal council directed that seven-year-old Mouti be killed for an alleged illicit relation with an eight-year old boy. Her father refused to accept the verdict and approached the local district administrator who provided protection. Legal provisions allowing those who commit “honour” killings to seek forgiveness from heirs of the victim continued to prevent criminal prosecution. In June 2003, Shamim Badshah forgave her husband for murdering their daughter Fozia, whom he had killed on suspicion of maintaining an illicit relationship. A court in Lahore where the murder case was being heard ordered his release.

Although women’s groups demanded that the waiving of criminal prosecution for crimes of “honour” by the victims’ heirs be banned in order to deter potential perpetrators, this provision remained unchanged. The National Assembly passed draft legislation making the handing over of a woman as compensation for murder a criminal offence punishable by up to three years’ imprisonment. Under another amendment, criminal charges under the laws on blasphemy and Zina (unlawful sex) are to be investigated only by higher ranking police officers. However, the amendments had not been signed into law. Despite the Sindh High Court’s ruling in April that trials by jirgas (tribal councils) were unlawful, the provincial government was reported to be preparing legislation to legalize this private justice system. Trials by jirga continued to be reported and no steps were known to have been taken against those participating in them.
Our Donations
We have found an NGO that acts for the campaign ‘Stopping violence against women in Pakistan’, an organization who operates a systemic strategy for lobby’s government and supporting heartland women caught in the viscous cycle of family honor and domestic abuse. The Pakistan Women’s Association, help victims file their criminal cases with the police, find attorneys to take their cases through the court system, offer legal assistance, providing emotional and moral counseling, have their own and offer alternatives for residential living situations.


The small print
Your registration fee includes food and beverage and the style clinic. Our Style Clinic fee is 100% donated to the charity. The money raised helps the Progressive Women’s Association (PWA) Pakistan, fighting the horror of violence and abuse against women. Visit http://www.pwaisbd.org/index.htm .
