On the launch of Rubaaiyat, Designer and entrepreneur Mini Bindra said “As an Indian brand, we are extremely proud to be launching our first ever store in Pakistan. My husband Deepinder Singh and I have always championed the belief and business of cross border fashion and to this end are already stocking a selection of Pakistan's leading designers at the PFDC Delhi multi-label store, of whom we are the official Delhi partners and owners. Bringing Rubaaiyat to Pakistan is an extension of this commitment to the accessibility of fashion between our two countries and it is because of the demand for our own label that we bring to Pakistan an entire store of our own. I really feel this collaboration between the Pakistan and Indian fashion business communities is becoming a launching pad for many more trade collaborations”.
Rubaaiyat by Mini Bindra’s fashion journey started in 2000 in India. The name of the brand “Rubaaiyat” is inspired by Persian poet Omar Khayyam’s poems/rubaiyas and like Omar’s poems, Rubaaiyat endeavours to capture the essence of love and spirit in their collections.
