Yahsir Waheed graduated from the National College of Arts and studied fashion design at Central St Martin's in London. He worked in the garment and textile export industry for seven years before launching the first-of-its-kind urban youth line under the label Yahsir Waheed Prêt in 1992, and ultimately Yahsir Waheed Lawn in 1998. The label blends traditional and modern contemporary designs. It is stocked at the Yahsir Waheed flagship store in Lahore, is widely sold at seasonal exhibitions in Karachi and Islamabad, and is also exported to India. It has been showcased at PFDC Fashion Week and has been nominated in the category of Achievement in Lawn at the LSAs. Following the success of his label, Yahsir plans to introduce a Luxury Prêt line in the near future.
