Vaneeza Ahmed

Vaneeza Ahmed Biography
Early life
Vaneeza Ahmad was born in Murree, Pakistan but later moved to Germany with her parents to study. She was pressured by her parents to get into medicine when she was in high school. She was to return to Pakistan at the age of 18 to study further medicine but her plans were thwarted by a lack of high school physics and she decided to rather attend Kinnaird College in Lahore.[2]
With her interests still inclined towards medicine, she graduated from Kinnaird College with a bachelor's degree in psychology. In her brief stay at the college, she started to model casually.[2] Not much interested in modelling as a career option, she was showered with offers from various fashion designers, some of which were notable in the Pakistani fashion industry[2] including the likes of fashion designer Nilofer Shahid with whom she did her first shoot, and photographer Khawar Riaz. She is a close friend of the makeup duo Athar and Shahzad, as well as designer Umar Sayeed and often speaks favourably about them in the press.
[edit]Modelling as a career
When Nilofer approached Vaneeza, she was unsure of which career to pursue and settled for fashion modeling. Her initial walks at fashion shows led fashion critics to praise her elegance on the cat-walk. In dealings with corporate heads of the entertainment industry, her business acumen was similarly praised.[2][3]
[edit]Vaneeza, the brand
Recently Vaneeza conjured a brand name Vlawn[4] for her range of lawn lawn and the branding created a hype among the fashion conscious public. The collection consisted of nine different lawn prints created by designers that included Nomi Ansari, Umar Sayeed and Hassan Sheheryar Yasin.[5] In March 2006, the collection sold-out in a series of exhibitions.[4] In 2011, Vanneza has continued with her "VLawn" brand of women's lawn suits. The new exhibition is eagerly awaited by women of all ages and will be coming to all major cities of Pakistan.
Acting and acclaim
I could lie about it and say I’m in this field for the love of art. But I admit that I’m doing it for money.
—Vaneeza Ahmed[6]
Over her fifteen year reign in the fashion industry her business etiquette has helped her to survive her chosen career. In a country where women are not expected to be make smart and calculated decisions in business matters of monetary concerns,[7] Vaneeza always stayed with the career for the sake of money.[8] With her peer Iraj Mansoor, Vaneeza is described as having ‘amassed a veritable fortune via straight-shooting endorsement deals and sensible choices’ within a decade and a half.[3]
Ahmad made her acting debut in Jamal Shah's controversial saga Kal and has since acted in Marina Khan's Tum Hi Tau Ho, Janey Anjaney and Tum Say Mil Ker; Armaan; and Talaash. Most famous role to come her way was that of the founder of Pakistan Muhammad Ali Jinnah's daughter Dina Wadia in Jamil Dehlavi's 1998 biopic of the leader titled Jinnah.[9]On 16 April 2008, Vaneeza Ahmad was selected as one of the Olympic torch bearers when the torch arrived in Islamabad. Sponsored by Samsung, she was one of the few selected celebrities[10][11] to hold the torch in the relay out of the chosen 66.[12]
