    Dear pfid admin,

    I just visited your site and knew about the versatile programmes you are offering to the students of Pakistan related to fashion textiles and designing. I just wanted to know about any scholarship programme your institute is offering for the needy students.
    If this is so, then i feel it glad to mention here about a friend of mine who not only fits right to your admission criterion, but also has got tremendously great potential to prove herself a shining star, and a proud part of your institute.
    an orphan, unfortunately, n by the will of God, has lost both of her parents.
    With a brother and three other sisters, the family is living a hand to mouth life here in lahore, pakistan.
    Believe me, I have personally witnessed her God-gifted talent in this field, (fashion designing), and her urge to rise, n prove herself but i feel sad for her when i see her talent getting unnoticed and ruined by time.
    I hereby, give you the assurance, that if this girl gets a chance to prove herself and finds a right platform to do so, she is gon be a pride for the institute, and the nation as a whole.

    I conclude with the hope that this strong urge of mine to help ‘a needy, with a super talent’ does not get unnoticed, and i hope to receive an affrimation reply from you soon soon.

    Hi Frederico,

    Thank you for visiting us. Pakistan is a big exporter of textile goods so there other institutes as well teaching textile design, fashion design and allied disciplines. Students of these institutes are mostly from Pakistan.

  11. Frederico

    I wouldn’t have expected to find a fashion school in Pakistan — does it attract a lot of students outside the country?
