In the past few years, we have witnessed the massive progression of the fashion industry in not just Pakistan, but globally. Fashion is one of the most critical industries in our world today. Style has become one of the primary ways in which people express their personality and in which they distinguish themselves from those around them. With fashion playing a big part in our life and our expression, it is also a way to extend our cultural values beyond borders. In this progressing industry, it’s important to keep encouraging new emerging talent to come forward and represent our heritage and culture.
Keeping this in mind, after five successful years, Shaan-e-Pakistan officially announced ‘SEP Fashion Summit 2021’ during a press conference held recently in Karachi. The event was hosted by actor and model Hira Hussain and top professionals from the fashion industry were in attendance along with media professionals.
CEO & Founder, Huma Nasr revealed that the Fashion Summit will be taking place in Karachi, Lahore and Dubai; later to be broadcasted digitally for audience world over.
Talking about the event, Ms Nassr commented, “I am pleased to announce the first Phygital Fashion Summit in Pakistan. Owing to the ongoing COVID situation world over, we have curated this Summit as an exclusive physical event with limited invite-only attendance and also decided to go digital for the masses to be a part of the Summit. We aim to initiate a much-required conversation regarding the underlying issues that the fashion industry faces at present and thus open avenues for a flourishing industry that welcomes new talent with open arms. Our motto has always been to create opportunities and grow together for a better and thriving Pakistan.”
The international SEP Fashion Summit 2021 is planned to have fashion maestros, style icons, models and other prominent individuals from the industry come together in the presence of younger emerging talent and aspiring students. The discussions will be based on current issues our fashion industry faces as well as solutions addressing what can be done to help bring about a positive change. The organisers hope to make this a bi-annual affair to keep the dialogue going. More details regarding the fashion summit will be disclosed at a later date.
