Pakistani designer Faraz Manan is one of the most sought after names in Pakistan for couture and bridal wear. He visited India to take part in the India Runway Week 2014. Manan shared his thoughts on Indian and Pakistani fashion.
"Firstly, we have a common cultural heritage and Indian and Pakistani designers have similar silhouettes. So, the more we focus on our commonalities and less on differences, the stronger bonds we will develop," he expressed.
"Indian designers emphasise more on structure and cuts and style while Pakistani designers emphasise more on fabrics and work such as embroidery. We use pale colours in comparison to the bold colours used in India. Apart from that, there are very few fundamental differences, " Faraz added.
Faraz has designed for Bollywood stars including Kareena and Karisma Kapoor.
Faraz also shared his favourite Indian designers - "Abu Jani, Sandeep Khosla and Sabyasachi Mukherjee."
