PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhawa and the adjacent tribal areas of Fata have long held an image as bastions of religious conservatism. However, Thursday night’s fashion show, held by a private entrepreneur in Peshawar, which displayed the work of over 50 designers from across the country appears to be a sign of change. Peshawar's elite were audience to an ensemble of products, ranging from wedding classics to formal dresses and casual wear. The fashion show served to refute the notion that the region has no tolerance for modern notions of fashion and self expression. Some of Pakistan's top models, Rachel, Sana Raza, Kiran Chaudhry, Maria Chaudhry, Noor Khan and Saba had the rare opportunity to take part in the event, many of whom left with the message that ‘all is not gloomy back in KP and Fata."

The sponsors and the models took a big risk for this event, it was a slap on the face of the terrorists. More such events along with debates for kids and sports events should be organized in the country specially in KP.

One cannot deny that most Asian girls (Pakistanis & Indians) are pretty. However, what they need is to have some very good make-up artists, beauticians and cosmeticians to enhance more glamour to their faces.
