Daniyal Mubarik for PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2013
“I was always very enthusiastic about participating in the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week’s ZONG Promotes Emerging Talent Show. I am more than happy to be selected for this prestigious opportunity and look forward to wowing the audience with my work”
Emerging fashion designer Daniyal Mubarik will be showcasing his womenswear collection titled ‘Global Culture’ at the ‘ZONG Promotes Emerging Talent segment of PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2013. Inspired by the evolution of different cultures, the collection interweaves different cultures and their identities to create a fusion of traditional and contemporary fashion. Daniyal’s creative design aesthetic will be displayed through the bold collection, which features outfits with British notch collars blended with traditional Japanese kimonos and Indian saris mixed with Arabic turbans and African drapes among many others. Indeed, the depiction of different cultural motifs is demonstrative of the yin yang philosophy and shows how seemingly contrary elements can exist in artistic harmony.
The son of a fashion entrepreneur with over 25 years of experience in the boutique business, Daniyal Mubarik is no stranger to the Pakistani fashion industry. A graduate of the prestigious Pakistan Institute of Fashion and Design, Daniyal has used the platform to showcase his childrenswear collection at the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week held in 2011 to much acclaim.
