This season, Couture Fashion Week is pleased to include a dazzling showcase of art, culture and design from Nepal. As Nepal recovers from the recent devastating earthquake, it is reassuring potential travelers and business partners that the country is absolutely safe and welcomes visitors with open arms. With its rich history and culture, and a warm and welcoming people, Nepal is a jewel waiting to be discovered.

CFW Producer Andres Aquino has been working closely Raja and Deepak Ghimire and their team, including Ms. Sarmista Ilo, Mr. Prem Ghopal Maharjan and Mr. Rishi Prasad Dhakal, to coordinate the Nepal showcase. “I’m delighted to work with these dedicated individuals to put a spotlight on the unique and exotic Nepalese culture for our guests,” says Mr. Aquino. “I’m sure our audiences will love the very impressive presentation.”
