Ali Xeeshan is a designer who is known for his quirks. Whether these are about his personal style or his flamboyant shows on the ramp, he’s usually the talk of the e-town after his shows.
He has always gone out of his way to put up a great show
So whether it was ‘Khamoshi’, another collection that spoke out against underage marriages
Or his set for the L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week
That had larger than life portraits of the models walking behind them
And especially last night, when he drew attention to child marriages
#AliXeeshan ‘s show stopper was a little girl wearing a school uniform in the middle of heavily embellished bridals. In his collaboration with @unwomenpakistan the #BridalUniform stands strong against the grave reality of child marriage.

Ali paired up with the UNWomen and spoke out against child brides with his showstopper
After several brides walked the HUM Bridal Couture Week ramp, a girl appeared wearing a school uniform embellished with bridal motifs; symbolising the unfortunate trade-off when a child is deprived of her right to an education, and is instead married.

The little girl dressed in a gota embellished uniform and bridal jewelry was part of the campaign ‘The Bridal Uniform’

The campaign spoke about how little girls deserve uniforms and not bridal dresses.
She turned a lot of heads as soon as she stepped onto the ramp, with hearts sinking all over the place
All of a sudden, the phenomenon that we’d all heard of was right in front of us, and was more than a reality check.
People were overwhelmed with the collection, as well
There were those who were applauding the concept
And there were some who were disappointed over the fact that the people who need to be educated about this issue will not be watching the show
Ali Xeeshan was heavily appreciated
And there were those in awe of the show
Finally, this: it is a very strong message
One that shouldn’t be taken lightly or brushed under the carpet anymore. It is a highly important issue that needs to be addressed more and more on even bigger platforms.
