Fashion is an Art! Art has no boundaries! An article of clothing can represent nations, cultures, religions, and diversities. It is by the virtue of these fabrics that we are trying to unite the world under the banner of World Fashion Parade to promote peace and harmony in planet earth. An event of this magnitude, to promote world peace, has never been organized before in the history of the fashion industry of the United State and we want to use this avenue to its fullest extent.
We all have been deeply sadden by the rise in violence in the war-torn countries like Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Somalia, Pakistan, and other parts of the world. With our unblemished mission to promote peace, our agenda for September 25th 2016 is to aim for these countries and more, and bring designers, models, and dignitaries to unite them and deliver the universal message of world peace by the virtue of fashion and modeling. We proudly present to you World Fashion Parade – Fashion for Peace.

We come from humble backgrounds, from the foothills of the Himalayas, where life as we know it wasn't always kind to us. As we became aware of the realities of the world we live in, we saw an overwhelming amount of violence, death, sadness, and sorrow casting an evil shadow over all humanity. In awake of the recent terrors and tragedies, and with heartfelt emotions coupled with our undying enthusiasm, we devised an avenue to promote world peace and remind mankind that all humanity is not lost. That avenue is World Fashion Parade - Fashion for Peace.
Together with the message of World Peace, World Fashion Parade is also contributing towards promoting Nepal and its constituencies. We are partnering with the Honorary Goodwill Ambassador of Nepal Tourism Board and are thrilled to include dazzling showcases of Art, Culture, Fashion and Tourism activities from Nepal. As Nepal recovers from the recent devastating earthquake, it is vital to reassure the potential travel and business partners that the country is absolutely safe and Nepal is welcoming visitors with open arms. With its diverse and historic cultural heritage, prime destination for adventurers and thrill seekers, one of the world’s best food culture, and with its magnificent beauty, Nepal has to be on top of you travel bucket-list. The Nepal showcase at World Fashion Parade will also include around a dozen prominent companies showcasing our famous handcrafted goods and other items from Nepal.
