Fahad Hussayn: Bridging the gap between Academia and Fashion Industry

Fahad Hussayn, one of the Pakistan’s top fashion designer, an alumni and faculty member at Mariam Dawood School of Visual Arts & Design (SVAD), is bridging the gap between academia and fashion Industry by giving his students a platform to collaborate in his collections for fashion shows. While talking with The News after his successful show at the recent Bridal Couture Week in Karachi, he said that he has turned his Lahore studio into a research centre for his students where they come, discuss ideas and research.

Here is an excerpt from his interview:

“As a teacher at BNU, I realized that there’s no liaison between fashion, education and the industry,” he explained. “Kids do not know how to research so I gave them this space to come and work, think and create. And these kids teach me things too. This show would have been impossible if it hadn’t been for my students.”
