A Born Artist - YBQ

Written by 

YBQ, Yousaf Bashir Qureshi Designer

Off course it sounds cool and easy when you say YBQ, but the truth is, it's not that easy being YBQ. Whenever I say YBQ, names like McQ and YSL come to mind instantly. But YBQ is undoubtedly not less than those names; he is one of the best renowned designer and artist of Pakistan.

Yeah! You people got right, I am definitely talking about Yousaf Bashir Qureshi the cultivated man, the devious designer, the professional photographer and a profound artist who loves his work no matter what kind of it is. He is quite artsy man, more truly speaking a born artist and a patriotic person. He is a gem of Pakistani crown.

Being YBQ is not that easy:


After graduating from University of Nebraska with a major in Food Sciences, he started designing his own clothes he needed. He also opened a Fashion Café labeled ‘Silk Café’ in Nebraska. And then his work reaches Oscar celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Sheryl Crow and Denzel Washington.


At first, YBQ designs for some big names and brands like Kenneth Cole, Givenchy, the House of Christina Lacroix, Bebe, BCBG, and Lapis. He gained experience while working with these major brands. When it’s about photography, his work gets recognized in National Geographics, Dawn News, Libas and Expoze. Finally in 2002 he launched his own fashion line labeled “YBQ”.


Recollections by YBQ:


Recently Yousaf Bashir Qureshi presented an artistic collection ‘Recollections’ that showcased his past and present artwork. A platform to express him completely and his skills in various fields and mediums like painting, art, sculpting, fashion designing, photography and writing.
