Nida Azwer Atelier

We are excited to announce that this year’s fashion show will showcase the designs of Nida Azwer. Nida Azwer, CEO of Fashion Pakistan Council, has been designing and working in fashion under the aegis of her eponymous label since 2005, only one month after she graduated from the prestigious Indus Valley School of Art & Architecture. Nida Azwer is recognized for the designers’ love of more classic and vintage design elements infused with traditional crafts such as tukri ka kaam, rilli, kantha, zardozi and miniature embroidery, worked in contemporary fashion. The atelier has dressed some of Pakistan’s most influential personalities, including actresses such as Mahira Khan, Humaima Mallick, Aamina Sheikh, Meera, Resham, Sanam Saeed, Syra Sheroz, Hina Bayat, Bushra Ansari, musicians Hadiqa Kayani and Sanam Marvi and Academy Award Winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, among many others. Check out her designs below!


Our keynote speakers this year will be Developments in Literacy’s Program Development Director, Brenda Erlinger, and Curriculum Director, Annie Field.
