Seven Pakistanis have made it to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for Asia this year, including filmmaker and creative director Bushra Sultan, who is the only Pakistani to be featured in the Arts category, which highlights the work of people working in art and style, as well as food and drink. Sultan, based in Lahore, has a “special interest in challenging her country’s constraints on women,” according to the publication.

The 29-year-old’s most notable work is in fashion and beauty. Her campaign for Demesne Couture called Guria [doll] showcased two opulently dressed women being controlled like puppets by giant hands pulling strings, a comment on Pakistan’s wedding industry and the demands made on brides.

“Sultan is also known for her audacious Chimera campaign featuring headless women,” Forbes stated.
