New Delhi: ‘Kya Dilli, Kya Lahore’, a fashion and lifestyle exhibition celebrating the craft and cultural legacy of India and Pakistan, is set to showcase art and artefacts such as paintings and sculptures, apart from fashion, in its third edition.
The third edition is set to take place in January 5-7 next year.
Huma Nassr, Pakistani fashion designer and curator of the lifestyle fiesta, told IANS here: “This season is more of association and more towards positivity that there is no difference between Delhi and Lahore. The last time, we had just focused on fashion, and this time we will focus on elements more than fashion.”
“It will be a cultural event theme. It will be more of art now as we are bringing best art from Pakistan and India as well. There are different categories like art from Balochistan and Peshawar… The art in Pakistan is very different and is appreciated by Indians. Similarly, the best art in India too will be promoted on the same platform,” Nassr added.
Food will also be an integral part of the cultural event.
In January, the fashion lines to be showcased will primarily be bridal wear.
“In the tradition, there was a little bit of difference in designing, so we would like to show that to India and vice versa,” Nassr said.
The attendees won’t miss the showstoppers as Nassr revealed that some faces from Pakistani TV — with whom Indian audiences are now familiar, courtesy Zindagi TV channel — are expected on the ramp.
