IFW, Oscars, LPNY and Humsafar

Islamabad Fashion Week has been postponed to April 10, 2012 which means that between FPW3 (April 6-9), IFW (April 10-13) and PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week (April 13-16) April will be a month to conserve energy for. Add the Sky Fashion Showcase to that list (March 26-29) and you'll be exhausted already. What a feeling! Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy's Vanity Fair party outfit by Sana Safinaz was accessorized by a lovely (ruby and diamond) ring and bracelet designed especially for the occasion by Sherezad Rahimtoola.

The runway, thanks to CEO Tariq Amin’s refined aesthetic, was impressive. 3. KFW shows started on time, with negligible twenty minute delays. The days wrapped up, quite wonderfully for PST, around 10pm. 4. As part of a larger picture, KFW is a launch pad for new or undiscovered designers, designers that may or may not make it to the country’s more credible PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week that has...

Another fashion council for Pakistan: PFC registered!

Setting a new record for a country with the most fashion councils is Pakistan as CEO Triple E, Mr Arshad Siddiqui, has registered a council of his own under the title 'Pakistan Fashion Council'. "This council will be for all designers of Pakistan as well as people associated with the fashion industry such as stylists, journalists, etc," Mr Siddiqui spoke to me from Islamabad where he is hosting PFW's first project, Islamabad Fashion Week. "Some people (established designers) have been treating fashion as their personal jaageer (property) and this is an attempt to make it accessible to all." He furthered that Tariq Amin had been appointed CEO of the council for three years and memberships were open for all designers, established and...
