Pantene Bridal Couture Week by Style360, held twice a year, was pioneered by HUM Network Ltd. and Pantene four years ago with the objective of promoting Pakistan’s bridal industry and providing a platform for the country’s upcoming and established designers. The grand bridal show has now become the most eagerly awaited event of the fashion industry, and has continued to exceed expectations with each passing show. From the designing of the cards to the complete execution of the event including set designing, the entire event is always managed by the in-house teams of HUM Network Ltd.
