Event planner Qasimyar Tiwana, or QYT as he is fondly known, spent part of his summer in London with wife Sana and daughter Rania. “While I prefer New York in the summer, I like London because it speaks to the lover of all things classic and opulent in me,” he tells us. From enjoying traditional English tea to staying at the iconic Ritz to browsing through Portobello for vintage finds, QYT shares glimpses from his holiday.
“When the madness of city life starts to take its toll on me, I escape to my village near Sargodha, named after my great grandfather Malik Muzaffaryar Tiwana,” says QYT. Home here is a 200-year-old haveli built by Qasim’s ancestors, which boasts a rich heritage, including serving as the birthplace of Sir Khizar Hayat Tiwana, Prime Minister of pre-partition Punjab. “My late mother was deeply attached to this house and its grand interior is a reflection of her taste. My brothers Asimyar and Ali Abbas and I keep it unchanged to carry her legacy forward.”
