Pakistan School of Fashion Design

The Annual Fashion Show


The Pakistan School of Fashion Design, located at 2-Sunder Das Road, Lahore,  is the 'brainchild' of Mr. Abu Shamim Arif, the former Vice Chairman, Export Promotion Bureau. Eight years ago, on the recommendation of Mr. Olivier Lapidus, Pakistan School of Fashion Design (affiliated with Les Ecoles de la Chambre Syndicale Parisienne, France), opened in Lahore, in keeping with the cultural ambience and heritage of the city - and Mrs. Abbasi S. Akhtar became the first Principal of the School.

This year on the 1st of July, the School hosted its annual graduation ceremony at the Crystal Hall, Pearl Continental , Lahore. 

The actual work of the students was displayed  in a choreographed presentation,  supervised by Madam Maryse Faux. The order of display was the black & white collection, day wear and evening wear respectively. This was followed by the ensemble comprising of woollen jackets, jamavar , vests and flared skirts and trousers, all carefully crafted by the students themselves. Finally, the coloured collection based on the theme of the Native American Indians.

The Black and white collection designed by the graduating students of PSFD, Lahore.
