Fashion Pakistan, the leading platform for Pakistani fashion designers has announced a partnership with TDAP, for upcoming ‘Made in Pakistan’ fashion showcase to be held on November 10th, 11th and 12th 2017 in Karachi.

Commenting on the event and partnership with TDAP, Feri Rawanian- CEO Fashion Pakistan said:
“This year the numbers have shown that due to competitive markets the export have dropped by $2 billion. Most of the manufacturing has moved to countries like Bangladesh, Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Vietnam…At Fashion Pakistan, we want to develop our designers and provide them with a stage so they have the right market insight and tools to get in to this value added segment in-line with international trends and consumer demands. This collaboration with TDAP aims to do just that.”
