ROME- Pakistan Institute of Fashion and Design in collaboration with Pakistan Embassy Rome
presented a fashion show on at Pakistan Embassy via della Camilluccia, 682 Rome, Italy.
H.E Ambassador Ms. Elisabetta Belloni (Secretary General, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and
International Cooperation) was the Chief Guest of the Fashion Show. Collections of 14 PIFD
graduates 2019 and 2018 from Fashion Design Department showed off their creations to an
audience of diplomats.
The clothes were “high fashion” in the sense of statement pieces designed for fashion shows
rather than everyday life.
Thirty minutes of a professional show featuring very striking clothes left the audience in no
doubt of the talent of the young designers. There was a round of applause when the models
appeared wearing beautiful costumes. “This is the new Pakistan,” announced the Pakistani
Ambassador, Nadeem Riyaz, as they came out to take their bow to extended applause.
Ambassador Riyaz had opened the evening with a speech stating that he had found Italy
beautiful and welcoming, he had had “a good innings” as ambassador here.
