Saad Ali, CEO of Pakistan Fashion Design Council (PFDC) -- the organizing body of the fashion gala â€“ said that he is excited to further their "commitment to holistic fashion in Pakistan" with this edition.
All participating brands are Pakistani. PFDC are also giving three dedicated platforms and categories within PSFW to three distinct fashion tiers: high-street brands, textile mills and both mainstream/emerging luxury/pret designers, he said.
PFDCâ€™s vision is the promotion of the business of fashion in Pakistan which is why they have worked hard to include, project and retail these three distinct categories. You can expect trends emerging in three distinct markets as a result of their PSFW 2015 showcases, added Ali.
To ease the business-to-business process, the organizers are also facilitating a way to determine each designer collections' retail ability, its production timeliness, as well as whether a designer is able to have it in stores, and if so, when.
This year they have an entire schedule that shows when each designer will be available. In terms of show line up, one will see luxury/pret collections from designer names like Fahad Hussayn, HSY, Huma & Amir Adnan, Misha Lakhani, Muse, Nickie Nina, Nida Azwer Atelier, Republic by Omar Farooq, Saira*Shakira, Sana Safinaz, Sania Maskatiya, Teena by Hina Butt, Zara Shahjahan and Zonia Anwaar.
The PFDC also introduces debut solo ramp showcases for designers Natasha Kamal and Syeda Amera with their luxury/pret collections, along with focus on young names, who will present their creations under Bank Alfalah Emerging Talent Showcase.
Expect a new and fresh take on both high street and luxury/pret from PSFW 2015, said Ali.
The high street shows will feature Hassan Riaz, BeechTree, Chinyere, Erum Khan, Generation, House of Arsalan Iqbal, Rayya Gilani and Shirin Hassan, highlighting contemporary affordable ready-to-wear apparel. The textile day will feature shows by brands like Alkaram Studio, Gul Ahmed, Harmony, House of Ittehad, Shubinak and Warda Prints.
The overall attempt is to "benefit the very trade and business of fashion", says Sehyr Saigol, PFDC chairperson.
