Commenting on the event and partnership with TDAP, Feri Rawanian- CEO Fashion Pakistan said: "As Pakistan is a textile based economy and largely dependent on exports, this year the numbers have shown that due to competitive markets the export have dropped by 2 billion dollars. Most of the manufacturing has moved to countries like Bangladesh, Cambodia, Srilanka and Vietnam. Some due to internal challenges and constraints but also largely due to lack of value-addition. We at FP want to develop our designers and provide them a stage so they have the right market insight and the tools to get in to this value added segment in-line with international trends and consumer demands and this collaboration with TDAP also aims to just do that”.
