Fashion Pakistan Week Spring/Summer 2020, previously scheduled to take place in Karachi between April 9 and 11, has been postponed due to the Corona Virus Outbreak worldwide.
The announcement was made via a press statement, in which Chairperson of the Fashion Pakistan Council Maheen Khan stated, â€œAt this time of a global pandemic, we will assess the situation later during the year, with regards to the rescheduling of Fashion Pakistan Week 2020. Weâ€™ve informed our designers and sponsors who agree with our decision and together weâ€™ll reassess later in the year.â€
Events of all natures are being cancelled amid health advisories, in which social isolation is quoted as the best and most effective preventive of the Corovidâ€™19, along with maintenance of good hygiene and vigilance. Fashion Pakistan Councilâ€™s decision to postpone fashion week is both responsible and very welcome.
