T ime flies… we are almost nearing the end of 2017! With so many transitions, ups and downs, this year has been an exhilarating experience. GLOSS is just 4 issues young, yet I feel like we have achieved quite a bit. We still have many challenges to triumph over, and in the process, we learn, we grow and get better. I am proud of all the marvellous, and creative individuals who have contributed and helped GLOSS grow. What started as a small idea has transformed into exactly what I had hoped for – a legitimate creative platform that celebrates the talents of individuals in Pakistan and UAE. Like us, there are several people starting out or new in their work. In this issue, we are celebrating an array of creative new talents from across the globe. We had an in-depth discussion with the incredibly gifted filmmaker and actor Hamza Khan Baande. We got a peep into the fashion industry and stitching communities with the extremely skilled Ayah Tabari. Pepsi Battle Of The Bands runner-up, Badnaam, let us pick their brains in an exclusive interview. We have also featured an extensive review of Pakistan’s very own The Burning Giraffe. This is not even the half of it as this issue is packed with more interesting content that we have put together. We have also experimented a bit with the layouts. Do let us know what you think about it. So, flip through the pages and read all about the personalities featured, and let us know how they inspired you. Have a wonderful month!
