The shoot is currently underway in Istanbul with both the stars and the designer's team.

The Pakistan-Turkey collaborations don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon; after Khaadi roped in Esra Bilgic, now fashion designer Maria B. has jumped on the bandwagon — but with a twist.

For her upcoming lawn collection, the Lahore-based designer has chosen not one but two megastars for the campaign: one from Pakistan, the talented Ayeza Khan; and the other from (you guessed it) Turkey, Gülsim Ali of Dirilis: Ertugrul fame.

"We have superstars from both countries. It's going to be amazing," says Maria alongside her two brand ambassadors in a video.

The promotion of her lawn collection has been in the works since some weeks now, with Maria teasing fans with clues of who would feature in her campaign. In snippets on social media, we can see her team strolling through gorgeous Istanbul, checking out the sites and sounds of the city.

She first revealed Khan as one of the faces for her campaign and then Ali joined the crew.

"This girl is so beautiful, her heart is so nice," Maria says in one of the videos featuring the Turkish star.

"I am so grateful to be here with you. Pakistan, we love you. Thank you so much for your love," Ali, who plays Aslihan Hatun on the acclaimed Turkish series Ertuğrul, says in her message.

Khan also shared a photo on her Instagram, expressing gratitude to both Maria and Ali. "Proud to be a part of this campaign, there is power and beauty in unity, we shine brighter when we shine together," the Meray Pass Tum Ho star wrote. "More power to you girls."

In another post, Khan called her Turkish counterpart "beautiful" and immediately got a reply from Ali: "You’re so so beautiful Ayeza." More power to these women building each other up, we say!

The designer previously launched her winter collection with another Ertugrul star, Turkish actor Didem Balcin, who plays the character of Selcan Hatun.
