Fashion Pakistan, is one of the leading platform for Pakistani fashion designers. Fashion Pakistan has a long tradition of holding bi-annual fashion weeks, with the very first Fashion Pakistan Week. The council has continually looked to new ways to support Pakistan’s growing fashion industry.
The Fashion Pakistan Council (FPC) organizes 2 fashion weeks in a year, one as spring/summer fashion week, and the other as autumn/winter fashion week. And this year, council has successfully completed its 10 years.
This time Fashion Week will be for 2 days instead of 3 days. Because the council has decided to invest on quality instead of quantity. The dates for FPW Spring/summer 2017 are the 22nd and 23rd of February, 2017. The event will feature some of the country’s most renowned labels.
