The event will be held in Karachi on 28th, 29th, and 30th November 2015, in collaboration with Urdu1 as the exclusive event and media partner.
Fashion Pakistan has a long tradition of holding bi-annual fashion weeks, having pioneered the concept of Fashion Weeks in Pakistan with the very first Fashion Pakistan Week, held in 2010. Since then, the Council has continually looked to new ways to support and bolster Pakistan’s growing fashion industry. This year will be no different, as FP looks to extend the outlines of what constitutes Fall/Winter fashion.
Winter in Pakistan represents an array of festivities, weddings, winter balls, and a general mood of celebration. Previously known as the Autumn Winter show, this year’s FPW Winter Festive promises to showcase all the colours of Pakistani festive wear, ranging from luxury prêt, to bridals and formal wear.
“We are really looking forward to this year’s Fashion Week. This will be our first ever collaboration with Urdu 1, opening up new avenues with local and international viewership, while also bringing a brand new outlook and vision to the show. Fashion is a burgeoning industry in Pakistan, and adds immense value to our economy. Constant innovation and encouragement will not only boost the industry but also give headway to new talent in Pakistan.” – Ms. Wardha Saleem, CEO Fashion Pakistan.
Showcasing this year are Shehla Chatoor, Toni&Guy Trend Show (featuring Sania Maskatiya and Deepak Perwani), Ayesha Hashwani, TenaDurrani, Hisham Malik, Sana Safinaz, Wardha Saleem, Maheen Karim, Obaid Sheikh, Elan, Nida Azwer, FnkAsia, Deepak Perwani, Umer Sayeed, Zaheer Abbas, Delphi by Nida Tapal, Zainab Chottani, Faraz Manan and Nauman Arfeen. Also showing for the first time at FPW will be renowned couturier Nilofer Shahid, who will be closing the event with the grand finale.
“This year, Fashion Pakistan Week Winter Festive, has grown bigger in terms of design philosophy to incorporate winter festivities such as weddings, balls, and parties. We want to demonstrate the latest trends and innovation across the broad spectrum of fashion in Pakistan. Fashion Pakistan is committed to developing fashion as an industry and will continue to highlight its growth and success.” – Sanam Chaudhri, Chairperson of the Council.
