The intent behind this event is clear and well-defined: to strengthen and bolster Pakistan’s fashion industry. We collectively strive to achieve certain vital goals such as paving way to export value-added products from Pakistan especially in the men’s wear market; help designers/producers identify international Fashion Weeks and trade shows where they will be able to showcase their work and receive orders; connect prospective clients with local designers and identify key stake holders of the event and bring them together.
Investors in the foreign markets are well-aware of Pakistan’s potential for mass production and are geared up to harness this ability. We would like to pave way for them so that they may work with the local designers and entrepreneurs for the mutual benefit of both the entities and the country on a larger scale.
