In recent years, many old and new designers have introduced innovation in contemporary and traditional wears of Pakistan. The credit goes to Pakistani Fashion Schools who are training competent Pakistani designers in collaboration with prominent national and international institutes of the world.
Pakistan Institute of Fashion Design (Former PSFD) is a graduate school for fashion design located in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. The Pakistani Fashion School was founded in 1995 and is known as the pre-eminent Pakistani fashion school. PIFD was the first institution to offer graduate training in fashion design in Pakistan. It is affiliated with Les Ecoles de la Chambre Syndicale Parisienne in Paris, France.
In 2006, the PIFD and the French Federation for Ready to Wear Women Garments (FFPAPF) decided to formalize cooperation and collaboration for the exchange of knowledge and skills and promotion of business between France and Pakistan’s garment industries. The agreement envisages a programme for development of the PIFD into a modern international fashion marketing institute, which could support and prepare Pakistan’s garment industry for the international market.

Fashion illustrations are responsible for injecting the fantasy and glamour to the fashion concept thought up by a designer. These are drawn by illustrators who add their own element into the illustration while projecting the designer’s vision. Several Fashion Illustrators are just as famous as the designers. However, the recent years saw a decline in the field of fashion illustration. Modern Fashion Illustration seemed to be losing out to modern fashion photography.
However, there is a revival in the craft of Modern Fashion Illustration as people have begun to realise that photographs can never capture the fantastical element of a good illustration. The mystery and allure that illustrations add to any design is not possible with photographs. However, in order to adapt to the changing world, modern fashion illustrations are more digital illustrations than hand drawn.

Modern Fashion illustrations that are digitally created can be in any style of illustration and can be manipulated easily. Most illustrations include photographic elements as well to give it a look of a collage.
The advantage that fashion illustration has over photography is that it helps in the visualisation of a concept that has not yet been made, while photography requires a physical object to be photographed. These allow the designers to sell the dream rather than sell a garment. As the renewed interest in all things hand-made makes a revival, modern fashion illustration evolves into an art form that can be both digital and hand-made. Fashion Art Illustration
