Faiza Ashfaq - In High Fashion Ensembles

Pakistan's culture is rich in folk customs and reflects the region's values. Pakistani apparel is a reflection of our national culture and represents our true identity.

Our basic shalwar kameez is a mainstay in Pakistani fashion. Nonetheless, they have majorly evolved over time. You can never have too many shalwar kameez since our designers are doing an excellent job of elevating them, be it their trendy silhouette, chic cuts and gorgeous prints.

For contemporary styling, kurtas are a go-to formal attire. Single coloured kurtas with intricate lace details and patterns paired up with matching trousers and an embellished dupatta can make you stand out from the crowd.

This can be adorned both casually (with cool and breezy prints keeping in mind the weather) or even formally (with heavy dresses for any occasion).

You may combine any kurta with palazzo pants to seem fashionable, or they can even be paired with straight cut trousers, the choice is solely yours. Delicate embroideries and lace work can really oomph up the dresses making them highly appropriate for weddings.

Steal the show and flaunt your traditional side with these stunning dresses. Accessorise the outfits with chic clutches and statement jewellery to take the look up a notch.
