On 14th August, 2019, President Dr. Arif Alvi confirmed 116 individuals for the Pakistan Civil Awards from both within Pakistan and outside too.
Among these people was Rizwan Beyg who finally received the Tamgha e Imtiaz award. Beyg shared this news with his fans on Instagram, “A year later than scheduled but finally got the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz at a small intimate ceremony at the Governor House Sindh. May we continue to be proud Pakistanis. Thank you Pakistan for the respect and honour.”
Beyg has conducted amazing fashion shows and has also represented Pakistan internationally by designing apparel for Princess Diana.
He said, “We have worked with the rural community for a long time now and that alone means excluding polyesters and synthetic fibers. However, sustainability has been about craft revival for us, and more than that, about sustaining the rural community.”
In a following video, Beyg further explained why he got the award, “Many believe I have gotten this honour because of my designing profession. But the reality is the corporate social responsibility our label has shown, the work we have done over the course of the past 10 years with women in rural villages, that is the reason for this award.”
