Cur­rently, is a blog about Pak­istan; it started life as a print mag­a­zine called “The Knit-Xtyle Fash­ion Review,” (Tkfr for short) back in 1998. In those days, Tkfr used to be a 16 page trade rag about Knitwear, Tex­tiles and Fash­ion indus­tries of Pak­istan. It cov­ered the inter­na­tional buy­ers and local ven­dors (or exporters in com­mon par­lance) and their issues.

March 2005, Tkfr was re-launched as a 100 page fash­ion glossy, still tar­get­ing the pro­fes­sion­als of the rag-trade; how­ever, the for­mat had become more com­mer­cial to appeal to gen­eral read­ers as well. By June 2006, the Tkfr man­age­ment had decided to dis­con­tinue pub­lish­ing it via the print medium and con­tinue it purely as an online entity.

July 2009 – was re-launched on the web with its cur­rent face, incor­po­rat­ing top­ics such as state of Pak­istan econ­omy, Tex­tiles, Apparel and fash­ion indus­tries of Pak­istan, Design and Retail, Real estate and lifestyles, ser­vice indus­try like mar­ket­ing and man­age­ment – in fact, life as we know it in Pak­istan.

Tkfr con­tin­ues to evolve, with spe­cial empha­sis on econ­omy, cur­rent affairs, lifestyles and pop­u­lar cul­ture – the main hot topic remains Pak­istan while we dis­cuss; debate and com­ment on the hot issues fac­ing our coun­try. Since it is no longer run as a reg­u­lar monthly or quar­terly, you might not see reg­u­lar con­tent on all top­ics, how­ever, many guest writ­ers’ get fea­tured on the site from time to time with their own by line, how­ever, behind, there is only one edi­tor and writer – Fareeha Qay­oom and one IT expert incor­po­rat­ing the web, graph­ics and tech­ni­cal aspects of the site– Adnan Q. Qayyum.
