IFWD 2015

Amidst the crazy fashion mania overtaking our Pakistani fashion fraternity with back to back fashion galas like FPW’15 and TBCW’15, our Pakistani designers stayed equally upbeat in the cross-border fashion race.

The India Fashion Week Dubai (IFWD) was held from 1st December to 2nd December 2015, showcasing 32 designer labels from both Pakistan and India.

Even though the Indian and Pakistani cricket boards are arch enemies at the moment, the fashion industry of the two countries have bonded over designs, color palettes, brocade and velvet at the IFWD 2015.

Some of the prominent names from the Pakistani fashion arena such as Hassan Sheheryar Yasin, Deepak Perwani, and Nomi Ansari showcased at the IFWD 2015.
