Veteran fashion designer, Rizwan Beyg receives Tamgha-e-Imtiaz
On 14 August this year, 116 recipients were granted Pakistan Civil Awards by president, Dr. Arif Alvi in honour of their work for Pakistan's betterment.
Fashion designer, Rizwan Beyg was one of them; the iconic couturier will be receiving one of the highest civilian awards for his efforts in advancing the fashion industry; from pulling off unforgettable fashion shows, representing our country overseas to designing a dress for Princess Diana herself, the designer has made significant contributions to the field.
The government of Pakistan has decided to honour the designer with a Tamgha-i-Imtiaz, which is the fourth-highest decoration given to any civilian in Pakistan. It seems like the designer hasn't been officially notified yet though. Speaking to Images, Rizwan revealed, "I haven't received an official letter from GOP yet. I just saw it announced on the President of Pakistan list in the paper."
The president will confer these awards at a ceremony to be held on the next Pakistan Day i.e. March 23, 2020.
Other recipients also include the late Fehmida Riaz and singer, Sanam Marvi. You can see the full list here.
