New Delhi: Shaan-e-Pakistan, a fashion and lifestyle exhibition celebrating the craft and cultural legacy of India and Pakistan, has been rechristened as ‘Kya Dilli, Kya Lahore’ and will now be hosted in Lahore instead of Indian capital Delhi.

Huma Nassr will organise the event later this year.

“We are delighted to host the second edition of Shaan-e-Pakistan here in Pakistan itself and what better place than the epicentre of culture, cuisine, history and more which is Lahore.

“Our first show in Delhi was met with much support and an overwhelming enthusiasm from patrons as well as developed those business networking opportunities between Pakistani and Indian retailers. With ‘Kya Dilli, Kya Lahore’, we are looking to extend this even further, bringing a slice of India to Pakistan bringing them together on one platform,” Nassr said in a statement.

The three-day event will start on March 20, said a statement.

Shaan-e-Pakistan 2015 brought together Pakistani and Indian fashion designers, retail brands, models, culinary forces, handicraft industries, music, entertainment and lifestyle personalities on one platform and with the second edition, the organisers have planned more.

India-Pakistan ties had suffered because of Pathankot attack last month. Since then there have been efforts from both the countries to make relations better again. Both the nations share historic rich cultural ties. Narendra Modi had paid a surprise visit to the neighboring country in December last year
