Who in Pakistan would wear this stuff ?
@bangash, i guess u missed the London part. its been done in london, not for pakistan
@bangash if PAKISTAN has your narrow mind we would never export anything.
If more people could wear this in Pakistan without it being a problem, Pakistan would be a better place.
I loved the Photography – very suave !
The organisers did Pakistan and the fashion world proud in London. Well done Adnan, Saad, Musab etc!
Keeping my view, we must keep in mind that our culture / values / customs whatever either in Pakistan or anywhere in world, Yes I also like modernization but underneath into our religious values.
I must say if American/British were black than we pestle “LED” onto our faces.
Asalam -o- Alikum All Islamic brother’s and sister’s.
It’s good over pakistani’s working in the fashion industry. it may increase over export but we should know over limit. if they want to desigin these type of dress it’s not good as a islamic world. we can desigin dresses within the limit people will like that dresses because i think 75% of the women in the world might be don’t like these type of dresses.
love the work designers
The Pakistan Fashion Week in London…This show looked so Pakistani. I see people dressed in these see-throughs all the time. Goras would be laughing at us for our so-called values back at home. Huh! Darn these liberals are sickening.
at least we can use these dress in movies and dramas
The amount of money these overly rated designers charge – You can feed entire families for many years. Fashion Industry in pakistan is a disgrace and a playground for corrupt rich elite.
Question is how many of you can afford the expensive overly rated clothing from your hard earn money and not from your dad pocket!!!!!!
What is amazing about Fashion in Pakistan is that at first only the very rich could afford it, now with the advent of television and mass media the middle class is getting access to a fashion sense and liking it and the religious man of the house is losing his power to cover his daughters as they want to look pretty and fashionable in garments that are sewn, designed and embroidered by their fellow country of men and women and see all the actresses in Bollywood & Lollywood garbed in fine clothing every young girl and woman wants to dream of being a princess for a day!
First it was the girls in the city that caught on, then the villages and soon the women in the tribal areas will create and own their own style and make Pakistani women a force of fashion to be reckoned with beating their Asian sisters across the board!
The flash gates of Pakistani women being the best-dressed is open and sorry you jealous Pakistani men who are as usual behind in the times …just sit back and get used to it!
Firstly it’s just a damn fashion show with no considerable impact on Pakistani public… and yeah this kind of fashion “amazing” for Pakistanis, not to mention the boost it’ll give to the potential number of perverts, workplace harassment incidents and so on. Those see-throughs really “help” the modern mind. Look, if one doesn’t hold a belief, then that’s something else but if they do claim to believe in a religion, then they should be steadfast instead of fussing their little, human minds about God’s orders. Also Indian culture’s a little different & frankly, Bollywood actresses dress up like “princesses”… just for eye-candy… Don’t think Pakistani women would want to follow that.
Excellent points Nida.
I heart mehreen syed’s t-shirt
@NIDA: The point is where you set the limit keeping in mind your eastern traditions and religious values. Nations don’t progress or called developed nations by taking off their cloths. Fashion does not make us any modern or more developed. Recommend
Why do people have to bring religious values into everything? Please don’t give this lecture to anyone? If fashion is not instrumental in development, religion and tradition fall in the same category. Religion has made people extremists. So keep religion out.
You do realize that not every Pakistani is a Muslim or a believer in religious dogma, and may have different sense of propriety than yours?.
I think this woman left her dignity and values at home wen she decided to become a model any way i was there back stage doing hair for the models nd believe u me, there was no such thing as islam there. Nd this is nt da right way to export
we are muslins and we should follow the tradition of Islam.
Bangash asked a normal and very non-threatening question. Bushra Salim, it’s people like you who are ready to jump and accuse others for being ‘narrow-minded’ without knowing anything. It’s a fact, majority in Pakistan will not wear those clothes. You don’t want to bring in religious values, then do not. Even culturally, majority of Pakistanis will not wear it. This is what makes us different than others. We do not believe that more skin is better. That’s what India does for us anyway :)
If people demand the designers provide
Someone is buying these
Very well done, but still it went un-noticed by main stream eye. We have more expectations from fashion people to extend your work to non English speaking countries as well. Pakistani clothes designs are quite famous among many Asian countries. While the potential these guys have is much more.
@shahid abbasi: we are muslims and we should follow the tradition of Islam. Won’t you agree that by doing just that we see the fruit of corruption, violence against women and terror acts in the ethnic cleansing done by people who strictly follow your views?
@ansari & #zain why do people who do not agree or like anythings attach a religious ribbon to it?
@ansari I think perverts exist in every situation their frustration leads them to also harass the female gender so according to you we cater to them and stop fashion and its working instead of fixing the problem of sexaul harassment for Pakistani women….or is this a typical male non-starter?
One dress was very good. Both for west and Islamic world.
Dresses for men haven’t gone beyond “sherwani”,a dress meant for special occasions.
Fashion should not border on eccentricity.
desi clothes mae desi bachian he achi lagti hain :p
