This month our fav, fav, favorite makeup artist Nyala has stepped out and over to travel the world! Nyala started in New York City, then went on to Dubai, and then to Pakistan! In Pakistan, Nyala is overseeing the production of the garments for her wedding ceremony and checking out all of the top designers in the fashion world of Pakistan. Here is what Nyala sent us from Pakistan about the new fashion trends and what she thinks of the growing “fashion scene” in Pakistan!
Salaam from Pakistan!
One Pakistani industry that has shown power, strength, and ingenuity throughout the chaos and devastation of its recent history is Pakistan’s fashion industry. Pakistan’s fashion industry has made its colorfully draped and sparkling mark in the international fashion world by launching its very own and one-of-a-kind Fashion Week!
The first annual Pakistan Fashion Week was launched in November of 2009 in Karachi and comprised of 16 shows in four days. According to the fashion savvy, the flavor and exotically creative looks that came down the catwalk provided an eye-catching and fashionable feast for all.
Exhibition stalls, business seminars and a total of 30 designers showcased their ready-to-wear and bridal collections around the catwalk. After having been to many fashion events in New York and L.A., I have to say that the runways here in Pakistan are unlike anything I have seen before in the U.S.
I’ll be doing one-on-one interviews with some of my favorite designers very soon, so stay posted! –Nyala
