By Rameeza Ahmad | 8 Jun, 2018

Pakistan’s wedding industry is HUGE.

Each year, designers showcase new, innovative bridal collections. We have one new shaadi trend or another in some form, and usually, these trends are pretty similar.

However, Murtaza Balouch, a 3rd-year fashion design student, may have just changed the game forever.

Murtaza took a material which is never associated with formal wear and turned it into beautiful bridal dresses. That’s right, he made beautiful lehngas out of D-E-N-I-M.

And they are not the only ones shook and mesmerized by these designs! People totally loved the idea of using denim for beautiful Pakistani bridal dresses.



In fact, some people were disappointed that they couldn’t wear these at their own wedding.


And some people started dropping hints about wanting these dresses.


We spoke to Murtaza about the inspiration behind these denim lehngas. 

Murtaza said he loves the material himself and he noticed the viral denim craze which gave him the idea to introduce bridal dresses in the material. In terms of how tough it was, he added that he had some experts guiding him which made his job a lot easier.

And clearly, he’s very talented himself.
