New-Delhi bound: Top 15 moments from Shaan-e-Pakistan 2015

Food, fashion, frolic and much more is happening at Shaan-e-Pakistan being held in New Delhi right now!
Updated 13 Sep, 2015

After a smooth start on Friday, the three-day cultural event Shaan-e-Pakistan – heralded as a harbinger of harmony between Pakistan and India – is in full swing.

Held in New Delhi, the event is a mix of fashion exhibits, music, and food. The festival kicked of with Eik Shaam Pakistan K Naam where the audience was enthralled by the famous qawal Amjad Sabri.

While a week-long food festival at Eros Hotel is also on the cards, fashionistas are busy making sure that models displaying latest trends are geared up for the ramp.

Helmed by Huma Nassr whose brand Braahtii has stores both in Karachi and New Delhi, the initiative aims to promote cordial ties between both countries in order to open gateways for trade in future.

To get a taste of what’s happening across the border here are our favourite moments, curated from Instagram, that provide a sneak peek to the fest:
