Model turned actor Bisha Abbas entered the fashion industry with her debut shoot with designer Nauman Arfeen and since then became a prolific model. Although she was a student of law at that time, but she was sure enough that her academic pursuits would not alter the course of her successful modelling career. She had since appeared on numerous coveted ramps such as Fashion Pakistan Week 2019, Toni&Guy, L’Oreal Couture Week to name a few. Much accolades came her way when she became the proud recipient of the International Pakistan Prestige Award (IPPA 2019) held in Norway for the Best Emerging Talent. Bisha has gone on to work with big names like Warda Saleem, Kamiar Rokni, Maheen Kareem, Sonya Batla, Umar Sayeed, Faraz Manan, Deepak Perwani, HSY, Nikkie Nina, Tabbassum Mughal, Ambreen Farrukh, Mifrah, Khas and more.

She recently stepped into the world of acting with a telefilm ‘Anjam-e-Wafa’. Bisha is now gearing up to star in a web-series soon and she believes it will be a treat for her fans. This week You! talks to the stunning model and actor and gets to know some of her beauty secrets…
