ISLAMABAD, Apr 26 (APP): The High Commission for
Pakistan in London is all set to showcase the country’s

Fashion Week (PFW)” on May 20-21.
The event will take place at the Lancaster House, a

Pakistan’s fashion industry, and will provide an opportunity
for the leading fashion designers of the country to showcase
their talent at the iconic Lancaster House. Besides, it will
present a unique opportunity to introduce our textile and
apparel industry to the UK market. I welcome the Pakistani
talent to the fashion world of London.”
The event is being organised in partnership with
Riwayat. Its Creative Director and Co-founder, Adnan Ansari
said: “It is an honour to be part of the official events
celebrating Pakistan’s 70th Anniversary of Independence, and
to hold the fashion shows at the exclusive venue of Lancaster
House which is befitting this landmark celebration.”
