Shaan-e-Pakistan is a collaborative initiative being spearheaded by India-based Pakistani fashion entrepreneur Huma Nassr who has been running her label Braahtii in Delhi and in Karachi since the past two years.
Head Organiser Huma Nassr says, “I love to introduce Pakistani culture in India and I take so much back from India to my home country. I feel so happy and safe in India, it is like my second home! With this initiative, I want people to experience the same and I am very glad that Pakistani diplomats have been very supportive of the platform.”
“Shaan-e-Pakistan – Colors of Indo-Pak” is envisioned as a platform for Indian and Pakistani fashion talent to showcase their craft on a unified stage as a means to create further awareness of the fashion prowess of the Subcontinent and to strengthen the bond between the two countries.
