In 2003, Karachi-based Diva Magazine placed Yasin on the cover of their "Most Powerful People" issue and as one of their 10 "Faces of the Year".Pakistan's acclaimed designer HSY is adding his part for a noble cause with acclaimed Scottish brand Harris Tweed.
Yasin and Scottish fashion brand Harris Tweed are coming up with a new couture collection ‘Shah’. The collection will be displayed at a solo show at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Scotland on 30th November.
Telling about the show, Hassan Sheheryar Yasin told a daily publication that “I am Extremely exultant to announce this collaboration with the prestigious Harris Tweed, a first for any Pakistani fashion brand.
