Pakistani fashion labels drop models from billboards
Fashion labels are trying a different approach this year when it comes to advertising campaigns in Pakistan.
Just last year, fashion labels saw their billboard ads of models being blacked out by protesters who were upset with the pictures of a bare-shouldered Bollywood actress in a country where most women are expected to be covered up.
But this year, the fashion houses are steering clear of using the models in their campaigns and trying out other options.

“In Islam, women have a lot of respect,” said Nadir Khan, customer relations manager of J Lawn. “We feel that women are not to be flaunted across the city on billboards.”
The Telegraph states that many other companies are starting to follow in J Lawn’s footsteps with their campaigns.

When morning talk shows and local newspapers dole out their seasonal swimsuit shopping advice, I’m usually pretty disappointed by the lack of body types represented. What about the women who don’t resemble fruit? (Or aren’t boy-shaped—the third “one of these things is not like the other” category I’ve never quite understood. Couldn’t they say “banana?” Or is that somehow more offensive than “apple” and “pear” shapes?)
