OSLO: Pakistani designers are no longer confined to the domestic fashion and appeal market, they are gaining recognition and fame all over the world. The one-day fashion show titled ‘Voyage of Creation’ commenced on a high fashion note at Sentralen Ovre Slottsgate 3 Oslo, Norway.
The platform’s objective was to celebrate Asian culture and fashion and enable Pakistani designers to showcase their designs to international audiences. While Pakistan’s fashion industry has gained global appreciation, this event aimed to serve as a stage for designers to increase their audience and raise Pakistan’s appreciation of fashion to another level.
The line of the participating designers was Hassan Sheheryar Yasin (HSY), Garnet Clothing, Rushals, Saima Rashid, Junaid Jamshed, Riwaj and Ahmad Bilal.
The star-studded charity fashion show was hosted by renowned Pakistani media personality & host Sarah Gandapur. Sarah graced the ramp wearing outfit of Divani Pakistan and Jewellery by Sonica Jewellers.
Talking to ILS, organizer of the show, Neha Ikhram said: “Voyage of Creation fashion show provides a platform for designers to introduce their work in Norway and help promote trade relations between the two countries. It represents a fusion of both, East and West, thus, bringing both the Norwegian and Pakistani communities together to celebrate.”
