Fashion Show (Oct 2010)
Afghan Fashion Show 2010
The Afghan Fashion Show 2010 took place on the evening of 7th October at Porchester Hall, London W2.
The theme for the evening was "Made in Afghanistan" and showcased clothes by Zolaykha Sherzad, an Afghan designer who is known internationally. She has recently shown in Dubai, Delhi, New York and Paris where her designs are now on sale in the fashionable Agnes B shops.
Zari fDesign was started by Zolaykha in 2004 to revive the Afghan artistic culture and all her clothes are made in workshops in Afghanistan by local men and women. She says, " I want to show people that Afghanistanis not all about war, orphanages and burkas. It's also about textiles, and history and culture. It's about beauty."
The AfghanFashion Show 2010, has the support of HRH The Prince of Wales and HE the Afghan Ambassador. The evening was introduced by Kit Hesketh-Harvey and styled by Kamran Khavari who created an Afghan themed evening with his trademark style and elegance. Top models led by Olivia Inge showed the clothes.
