The awards took place at Lahore's Expo Centre last night and saw a big attendance at a ceremony that was intended to be muted yet meaningful. Sahir Ali Bagga sang a qawwali, Frieha Altaf's #MeinBhi campaign for human rights was launched and the show ended with a powerful orchestral performance that was 76 musicians strong. But we'll leave those highlights for later. Lux Style Awards 2018 offical Hashtags #LSA2018 #LuxStyle2018
