As with every PLBW, we are delighted to build on our partnership with the world’s most important force in beauty, L’Oréal Paris, to define the regions’ fashion and beauty looks for 2017-2018. Further and historically, with each season and showcase, the PFDC has championed the spirit of evolution and it is in this spirit I am particularly happy to introduce the earlier evening shows across two days as a platform dedicated to those popular and younger designers who have chosen to debut new collections at bridal week or show themselves for the first time.”
Musharaf Hai, Managing Director L’Oréal Pakistan, has said, “The PFDC L’Oréal collaboration refreshes each year with latest developments in the world of Beauty, Fashion, Social Media and Commerce. L’Oréal has the Beauty métier and lends its global expertise to promote the industry of Beauty and Fashion which are symbiotic. With our global tenet of “Sharing Beauty With All”, we believe in not just calling the trends, but bringing sustainability, diversity and inclusiveness to the realm of Beauty.”
