you & me

Vivacious yet bubbly, Ayesha Rajpoot stumbled upon the world of modelling through a mere coincidence. Accompanying her sister for a modelling shoot, photographer Khawar Riaz spotted potential in her and decided to book her for his modelling assignments. Soon she found herself in with a team of hair and makeup artists, being styled for her first ever shoot. Ayesha landed her first modelling gig for Nomi Ansari, after which there was no looking back. The newbie has since then worked with big designers and labels such as Amir Adnan, Nickie Nina, Lajwanti, Meeras, Rema Sheharbano, Shirin Hassan , Nauman Arfeen, Gul Ahmed, HSY, Master Tiles, East Breakout amongst others.
