Pakistan has a fashion week - while the bombs go off around them - not a headscarf in sight

Its the tale of two Pakistans ~ clearly the rich don't want to be stuck behind the claustrophobic Islamic headscarf all the time. Presently they can't invite outside designers because of the security situation. They have to shake off this religious tyranny. The show must go on!
