Scottish Pakistan Fashion Week was recently held at the Crowne Plaza, Glasgow and was star studded with the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon also present.

The mission of SPFW:

Mr Fida Hussain the CEO of SPFW stated the following as his  and his organisation’s mission:

The organization’s mission is to bridge the gap between Pakistani and international designers, provide a formidable commercial platform between the designers and channel partners as well as global fashion media. Scotland Pakistan Fashion Week’s ultimate goal is to garner global exposure for Pakistani fashion industry, its designers and in particular its artisans.
Through educational fashion seminars, year-round fashion events, and charitable partnerships, Scotland Pakistan Fashion Week is gaining rapid acclaim for its community-service efforts, particularly its women-empowerment role, and for infusing world-class innovation within the Pakistani Fashion Industry.
