Fashion Pakistan Week S/S 2016 will run from April 7-9, 2016 in Karachi in collaboration with Urdu 1 as the official event and media partner.

“25-30 of the country's best fashion designers and retail brands will be showcasing their latest Spring/Summer collections through this platform,” a press release from the organiser informed.

Sanam Chaudhri, chairperson of Fashion Pakistan Council said, “We want to demonstrate the latest trends and innovation across the broad range of fashion in Pakistan.”

“Fashion Pakistan is committed to developing fashion as an industry and will continue to highlight its growth and success,” she added.

Urdu 1's CEO Faraz Ansari said, “We are extremely pleased to be partnering with the Council on what is sure to be a fantastic event.”

“With amazing talent on show, we are excited to help introduce Pakistani fashion to new international markets and expand our latest commitment to fashion,” Ansari also added.

This season will also mark Fashion Pakistan's ground breaking partnership with Trade Development Authority (TDAP) as the main sponsor for FPW S/S2016.

TDAP secretary Rabia Javeri stated, “It is time Pakistan moved to high value exports, such as gems and jewelry and both, pret and couture fashion apparel.”

Fashion Pakistan Week allows for the showcase of established designers, production houses, and the entry of new and young fashion aspirants.

Wardha Saleem, CEO Fashion Pakistan too said, “We are excited that with TDAP's association, more that 700 international buyers will be attending FPW S/S2016.”

“They will be joined along-with influential international fashion figures, making this event a true business and networking opportunity for the participating designers,” Saleem informed.

Fashion Pakistan Council, established in 2007, is the local fashion fraternity's representative body created by the designers, for the designers.

One of the primary objectives of the council is to educate, empower, encourage and promote local fashion designers both locally and internationally.

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. (AR)
