The annual Fashion Pakistan Week (FPW) of the Fashion Pakistan Council, which was scheduled for December 5 and 6, 2020 in a stunning, tropical garden, has now been postponed to 2021.
The festival has been postponed to February 2020 over safety issues, according to an Instagram update by Fashions Pakistan. “We hope to see you next year, stay home and stay safe,” it said.
Maheen Khan, who launched her tenure as the new chair of the Fashion Pakistan Council (FPC) earlier this year, posted on her Twitter a post confirming the same. FPW 2021 Training New Girls .

A press release had previously confirmed that the forthcoming FPW would be an intimate, special two-day event aimed at celebrating fashion and craft.
FPW will adopt the modern multimedia model used internationally by showcasing collections in a luxurious environment, ideally suited to seeing a designer’s craftmanship and vision arrive.
Along with the presentation from the venue, the selections will be live-streamed. In a post-Covid-19 setting, by limiting seating and conventional fashions week activities, FPW can follow the patterns and GoP guidelines of International Fashion week.
The value of culture, help and the strength of donation has been introduced to the world this year. The Fashion Council Pakistan recognises, as a non-profit, the crucial role that donors play in producing good returns. In this spirit, Special Olympics, Pakistan, has promised to donate a portion of its proceeds to the up and coming FPW.
Pakistan’s first formal fashion festival, Fashion Pakistan Week, was held in 2007, and has remained the premier forum for designers and retailers. With architecture and beauty being the star highlights, FPW aims to place fashion at the forefront.
