Last night’s fashion show in Karachi – where top local designers showcased their take on the new and improved Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) uniform – had to be the most INTERESTING fashion show to be churned out by the Pakistani fashion industry. Well done you guys!
Given that PIA’s reputation has been none too spotless, the fashion show seems to be just one step in the right direction for the airline’s makeover. Having enjoyed immense respect and popularity in the past, is the re-birth of PIA in the pipeline? One wonders. The winners of the show, whose designs will be used for the cabin crew, are: Nomi Ansari (women’s wear/air hostesses), Omer Farooq of Republic (stewards/men’s wear), Sania Maskatiya (head wear: caps) and Yasmeen Sheikh’s jackets. Yum.
Below are some incredible images from the fashion show itself, in addition to a few dated pictures from PIA’s golden years:
