The Fashion Pakistan Council has declared that Fashion Pakistan Week 2020 is being postponed until further notice due to the country’s coronavirus outbreak.

The council’s chairperson, Maheen Khan, said: “At this time of a global pandemic, we will assess the situation later during the year, with regards to the rescheduling of Fashion Pakistan Week 2020. We’ve informed our designers and sponsors who agree with our decision and together we’ll reassess later in the year.”
