Pakistan’s first ever premium western designer and high street brands retail website is finally here.
Founders Ali Ahmed and Assad Khan bring you Dubai-based e-commerce site, Fashsouq.com.
The website, which kicked off its soft launch in February, specialises in sourcing western brands from across the globe and then making them available to the Pakistani consumer market through their e-commerce website.
Fashsouq caters to men, women and children, providing clothing, shoes, accessories and make up. The company boasts an impressive portfolio of high street brands such as such Zara, Massimo Dutti, H&M and Bershka as well as luxury brands such as Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Valentino and Saint Laurent.

About their selection of brands, Brand Manager Laila Malik explains, “We chose brands that are in high demand in the Pakistani market but are unfortunately not available in the country.”

CEO Ali Ahmed had wanted to capitalize on this market: “I had wanted to launch this site for some time. E-commerce is the way of the future, which is why I chose to launch Fashsouq.com. Pakistanis travel the world and now we’re making the world available to them. I believe with the advance of the digital world, it is the right time for Fashsouq to offer its premium services,” said CEO Ali Ahmed.
About the site’s operations Managing Partner Assad Khan adds, “We take pride in offering only authentic and official products, ensuring customer belief. Since our website’s soft launch, the response has been amazing. Everyday has been new and exciting for us. We’ve achieved a lot along the way and there’s a lot more to come. We will be adding over 15,000 more items soon,” he said.
