In Pakistan Nine West is represented by Burj Fashion Footwear Pakistan, the initial retail effort of Burj Capital. The Group is a multi-faceted global investment company covering a large spectrum of industries and regions.

Burj Fashion Footwear Pakistan is Burj Capital’s initial entry into the retail market. The Pakistan market was selected as an ideal starting point for introducing international brands due to growing awareness and a noticeable lack of options. There is a considerable sized market in Pakistan for brands across the spectrum, from mid to luxury markets, and from food & beverage to clothing. Nine West was selected as the Group’s first venture due to the international recognition the brand already boasts and significant local following.

The American Counsel General Ms. Nina Maria Fite inaugurated the Nine West Lahore store as the Chief Guest, the launch event organized by Catwalk Productions and PR managed by Catalyst was also attended by the Burj Group Chairman, Saad Zaman, along with numerous socialites, celebrities and fashionistas. The Red Carpet host of Nine West launch event was none other than the stunning Natty. The event also featured a special fashion presentation showcasing the trendy wedges and sky-high heels perfectly matching the classy satchel and fun hobo bags of Nine West.
