New Delhi, March 12 (IANS) Fashion can be the balm that can lend a healing touch to relations and bring India and Pakistan closer, feels Pakistani fashion designer Huma Nassr.
“We can speak peace through fashion. Let the politicians do whatever they are doing at their level, let’s talk about fashion. There is a lot in terms of fashion that India and Pakistan can exchange,” Huma, the creator of the fashion label Braahtii, told IANS here.
Huma is organising the second edition of “Shaan-e-Pakistan- Kya Dilli Kya Lahore” event in Lahore this month. The three-day event would see participation by a number of Indian and Pakistani designers, musicians and artistes.
“This is going to be a fashion-cum-music-cum-food event. It is an amalgamation of various things. This event is a little effort by me to bring the people of India and Pakistan closer,” said Huma, who is in the capital in connection with the event.
“This time around Rekha Bhardwaj, Zeenat Aman and chef Mujeeb ur Rehman and a few Indian designers and artistes are coming to Lahore. We love Indian vegetarian food and want the Indian culinary magic recreated there. In turn, we too have some delicacies to offer,” she added.
