The event has been delayed over safety concerns
The Fashion Pakistan Council has postponed its annual Fashion Pakistan Week (FPW) due to the second wave of coronavirus pandemic.
According to its official Instagram post, the event has been pushed to February 2021 over safety concerns. “We hope to see you next year, stay home and stay safe,” it stated.
FPC Chairperson and designer Maheen Khan confirmed the news in a tweet.
Earlier, it was announced that the two-day event will be held from December 5 to December 6, in a beautiful, tropical garden. “An outdoor luxury setting with a carefully curated guest list of attendees, FPW will present collections in a glamorous atmosphere, best suited to watch a designer’s craftsmanship and vision come to life”.
In a post COVID-19 environment, FPW will be embracing the new digital format going global. Collections will be presented by live streaming the show from the venue. It will follow International Fashion week’s trends and government guidelines by restricting seating and traditional fashion week practices.
Fashion Pakistan Week was Pakistan’s first formal fashion show held in 2007, and has remained the premier platform for designers and retailers.
