ETIHAD AIRWAYS PRESENTS FASHION WEEK’S MOST INSPIRING DESIGNER AWARD
Etihad Airways has teamed up with Fashion Pakistan to present “Pakistan’s Most Inspiring Designer” award to Zaheer Abbas. Zaheer, who was also named as the “Best Emerging Talent in Fashion” at the prestigious Lux Style Awards, was chosen in an online poll posted on the Etihad Airways’ Facebook page and the votes received from the members of the Fashion Pakistan Council.
One lucky Etihad Airways Facebook fan, Kamran Hashim, also won 15,000 Etihad Guest Miles by taking part in the poll. Zaheer Abbas truly deserved the honour for his antique white collection of breezy summer dresses that were a pleasure to see floating down the runway. Using exaggerated pleats and fitted bodices to emphasize the flounce factor he delivered a feminine grace with an old world charm about it. Zaheer is best known for his love for light fabrics such as chiffon, airy silhouettes and attention to detail. His designs are available in various stores in Karachi, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and London.View his FPW 2012 showcase on the FPW profile page.

It has been along standing policy at Etihad Airways to encourage fashion, arts and culture worldwide. We are proud to lend our support to Pakistan’s burgeoning fashion industry and to be associated with Fashion Pakistan Week for the second year ina row.”
