If there is one industry that I think is flourishing exponentially in Pakistan, it is our fashion industry. One after another successful fashion shows in a short span of time are a living proof of what I just said. What makes me even more excited is the fact that the creative work of our fashion gurus is not only appreciated in Pakistan but it is welcomed internationally as well.
