Fashion Pakistan Week postponed over safety concerns

KARACHI: Fashion Pakistan Council’s annual Fashion Pakistan Week (FPW), which was slated for December 5 and 6, 2020 at a beautiful, tropical garden, has now been pushed to 2021 over safety concerns.

As per details, Fashion Pakistan Week was Pakistan’s first formal fashion showcase held in 2007 and has remained the premier platform for designers and retailers.

According to Fashion Pakistan Council, the event has been postponed to February 2021 over safety concerns. “We hope to see you next year, stay home and stay safe,” the council added.

 Chairperson of the Fashion Pakistan Council (FPC), Maheen Khan shared a post confirming the news on her Twitter account. “Training new girls for FPW 2021. #NewBeginnings #FashionModel 2021 I can’t wait!” she wrote.

Earlier, the council in a press statement said the upcoming FPW will be a two-day intimate, exclusive affair aimed at highlighting fashion and design.

Presenting collections in a glamorous atmosphere, best suited to watch a designer’s craftsmanship and vision come, FPW will be embracing the new digital format utilized globally.

The collections will be live-streamed along with the show from the venue. In a post-Covid-19 environment, FPW will be following International Fashion week’s trends and GOP guidelines by restricting seating and traditional fashion week practices.

This year has taught the world the importance of community, support and the power of donation. As a non-profit, the Fashion Council Pakistan understands the important role donors play in creating successful outcomes.

In this spirit, the up and coming FPW has promised to donate a percentage of its proceeds to Special Olympics Pakistan, FPW said.
