I have always wondered what my mum keep on watching on that idiot box (I kind of gave up watching it long ago!! God save those daily soap watching souls!!). People generally think all women like to watch plots around multiple husbands, marriages, evil mother/sister in law, BUT wait! There is more to it than what meets the eye. My mum and a few women like her watch it with a different objective in their mind. Their selection of serials is not just based on the “so called plot” and the star cast but also how beautiful they look wearing all those gorgeous dresses or the “to die for” jewelry.
Most recently, she has been watching a lot of serials on this new channel Zindagi. So this is what got me intrigued as well. This channel showcases Pakistani culture and has set a new trend in the traditional fashion of India. Designers have started coming up with new collections of long and loose fitting suits generally referred to as Pakistani suits. Infact, a few days ago, Delhi hosted an exhibition “Aalishan Pakistan” at Pragati Maidan, with over 250 exhibitors from Pakistan, who showcased fashion, textiles, jewelry, accessories, leather, fabric, carpets, furniture and more.
So, CB brings to you whats hot in the Pakistani fashion at the moment.
The kurtis are generally long sleeved and loosely fit, with very high slits.
The kurtas could go up to the ankle with a straight line cut and prints all over. You can wear them with salwars, pallazzos or cigarette pants.
The suits may even have different fronts and back which adds a certain twist to the appeal. It can be easily worn on broad pant style bottoms.
Pakistani suits have a great dominance of prints on them. Everything about it depicts the Pakistani culture.
But, if you thought the Pakistani fashion ends at prints, we have news for you! Heavily embroidered with intricate zari work suits form a huge part of the festive collection.
So, my pretty ladies, get geared up to look fashionably forward this wedding season. I hope to see you experiment with these amazingly different styles of clothing.
