Britain was among the first few countries where the Asians settled outside their countries. There are many people who have been living there for generations and now the new generations have the fashion sensibilities that combine both conservative and Western fashion. In Maheen Khan’s view, the British market was important for her as there were many Asians living in Britain. Maheen Khan believed that conservative fashion could also be immensely trendy.
