All eyes were on actor Mahira Khan, who was present at the red carpet, looking striking in a black and white Mango outfit. PHOTO: EXPRESS
Karachiites were treated to the launch of international clothing company, Mango, at Dolmen City Mall.
finally some outfits for the average middle class Pakistanis!!…….NOT !
the country with two extreme ends!in every aspect,rich and poor,educated and uneducated,powerful and weak,patriots and traitors,etc.etc.the list continues.
@azam: Every country is like that but the difference here is far greater than other countries.
Play things for the wealthiest 0.1%.
Honestly, for a split second, I thought this slideshow was related to MANGOES like summer mangoes. Pakistani businessmen promoting Pakistani fruits on Intenrational stage. Little did I know.
what I see is Pakistan mimicing Dubai on the shopping front. O.K stop it already.
Lets not throw our money on words like MANGO, lets focus on our own strengths PLEASE.
Extremists of another nature!
whose can afford to dress like this? Marks n Spencer stuff is much more useful and reasonable, why doesnt anyone open an M&S store?
Obviously the women who’d wear these clothes would wear them in their luxurious mansions. You wouldn’t see them walking in Saddar in these clothes, or would you?
Its good to hear that foreigns people are investing in Pakistan but as consumer we should be aware about how to cultivate our own culture. If we blindly wear those outfits then we loose our identity as modern muslim country.
why don’t these international brands conform to our culture by offering something in accordance with our culture and religion. why do we always have to follow in their foot steps..we have out identity but unfortunately our high class society loves to worship the west..Sigh!
Because people assume it’s pro-Israel. As is the United States of America with whom we constantly trade with and open their FMCG chains. But American money is greener than the M&S logo. Much more appealing.
While M&S has lobbied for Israel in the 1940s, the notion that Pakistan won’t “allow” M&S to launch on that basis is slightly ludicrous considering we don’t examine other trade connections intensely. If (and I would hate for this to happen as the ethical stance we should have in our trade policies, should be rational, like related to fair-trade for example) we were to examine other companies that are operating in Pakistan, we would be boycotting many many goods.
So as is often the case, Pakistan is just playing on the sympathies of the ignorant because they seem to hold more sway than cold-logic or consumer-driven economic expansion in a global world. Also, it seems, its easier to keep people quiet if you find one obvious target, then no one can accuse you of supporting Israel.Recommend
Great! Now how about some Mango money to buy those expensive clothes!
