Art, whether in any medium, is a way to re-imagine the world, build bridges, and promote communication in order to develop compassion, make friends, and express feelings. It is one of the reasons why cultural exchange through art, fashion and cuisine is so vital to promoting peace between countries.
As far as Pakistani fashion is concerned, there is only one term that can really sum up it: diverse Whether it’s formal, fashionable pret wear or conventional bridals, we find a variety that can’t be found anywhere but here. Pakistani designers have proven their mettle in recent years by bringing to the front such unique and exceptional designs, spoiling us with choice. We dabble in different arts and learn new methods to add value to their offerings, which is why our fashion industry never has a dull moment.
