Karachi: Leading jewellery designer Kiran Aman commemorates nine years of her brand Kiran Fine Jewellery KFJ. To celebrate this, she revealed a photographic exhibition and launched the book ‘Kam Sukhan’ at Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture on the 09th of March 2013 with extraordinary talents of nine photographers: Adeela Badshah, Farah Mahbub, Insiya Syed, Khaula Jamil, Lali Khalid, Mahwish Rizvi, Nazia Akram, Shalalae Jamil and Quratulain Khalid – almost all of whom were present at the launch event.

The launch was opened with an introduction to the evening by Tuba Arshad, Creative Manager at Markings where she invited on stage photographer and project head at KFJ, Adeela Badshah who spoke about the nine women photographers and their experience and efforts on working on ‘Kam Sukhan’. This was followed by an address from the guest of honour for the evening, award winning model and actress, the multi-faceted Aamina Sheikh, who spoke about the beauty of womanhood, a woman’s journey and how ‘Kam Sukhan’ encapsulates and celebrates this.

Public Relations for the event was handled by Lotus.
On the launch of ‘Kam Sukhan’, publisher and jewellery designer Kiran Aman has said, “A woman’s soul carries her deepest glories. From her inhibitions, struggles, and fears, you’ll learn of patience, forbearance and resolve and in time you will find that her spirit, ever-undaunted, is a pearl made of steel. Indeed these nine years have been a celebration of women for me and my brand, and Kam Sukhan captures this essence of a woman and brings it forward tangibly through a book and photographic exhibition.”
