Fashion week comes to Pakistan


Fashion week is held in various parts of the world, and it is often (big) business as usual. But it is a big deal when it comes to other places, like Pakistan. After many challenges, the first Fashion week has comes to Pakistan, despite the difficulty of mounting such a show there. This Yahoo! News/AP news story nicely illustrates the difficulty of mounting such a show in Karachi. The story also highlights the multifaceted nature of fashion, which can represent freedom, beauty, shallowness, wealth, style, and so much more.

For my part, I thought the clothes and the models look great. I’m not sure the Taliban would agree. Then again, that’s partially the point.
