Delhi to host Indo-Pak designers' exhibition

Designers from India and Pakistan will showcase their range of fashion, textile, jewelry, accessories and even furniture at a three-day exhibition that begins in Delhi on September 10, according to media reports.

The event called "Shaan-e-Pakistan" has roped in over 150 exhibitors from both the countries.

"Shaan-e-Pakistan not just offers a glimpse of Pakistani fashion, the event is about empowerment too. Women weavers and craftsmen, rarely realise the worth of their exquisite handwork," says Huma Nassr, who made India her second home seven years ago and retails under the brand name 'Braahtii'.

"Since most designers use hand embroidery, this will prove to be a good opportunity for these artisans to get the exposure they deserve," says Nassr.

A wide range of ensembles in pret, couture and semi formals are also set to be showcased.

Top designers from Pakistan -- Hassan Sheheryar Yasin the king of couture, Umer Sayeed the pioneer, Zainab Chottani the queen of great signature series, Saher Atif are scheduled to take part in the exhibition.

The event, expected to bring a huge delegation from Pakistan, is part of the larger aim of its associates - Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO), Karachi Chamber of Commerce and High Commission of Pakistan to further build on the efforts of the governments of Pakistan and India to normalise trade relations between the two countries.

"With a trade potential of billions of dollars between the two countries, the event will not only offer a unique opportunity to Indian fashionistas to interact with their Pakistani counterparts but also offers a first-hand opportunity for customers to feel and own the best quality products India and Pakistan has to offer," says Sangeeta Das, co-host, Shaan-e-Pakistan.

The exhibition at the onset of the festive season plans to introduce Pakistani trousseau teamed with Indian aesthetics, making it the hot destinations for shoppers to pick up latest designs of Pakistani couturiers.

The idea, say organisers, is to make the festive season more special for both the countries.

Designated lounges for fashion, textiles, jewelry, lifestyle products, accessories and even furniture have been planned. The event will also feature a grand fashion show by prominent designers. (SH)
