This Dupatta Trend Has Women All Over Pakistan Going Gaga This Shaadi Season

By Arslan Athar | 6 Nov, 2018

Shaadi season is here, ya’ll know that! There are some trends that come in each season, yet there are some looks that are just classic. The¬†kiran¬†dupatta is a style of dupatta that was extremely popular back in the day. If you ever look at pictures of your¬†daadi/naani’s¬†shaadi, then you’ve definitely seen this style.

The past few years, the¬†kiran¬†dupatta has made a comeback and it’s been quite an intense return. Designers have been returning to the classic style and embracing the old world charm.

Designers and celebrities have wholeheartedly embraced this trend 

The look is simple; simple kurta paired with the kiran dupatta. 

The dupatta style paired with ghararas creates the PERFECT classic look 

The kaam, especially in this look, creates an aura of elegance and grace, which modern kaam and techniques have not been able to achieve.

A light color and gold kaam just looks AMAZE

The intensity of the ‘frills’ can change, but it looks just as great¬†

You could go all out, but if you want to keep it simple, the kiran could be short.

You can instantly add an old world charm by throwing one of these on

Our very own Wajiha Kibriya! She is an inspiration for us all! Seeing her smile and watching her experience joy from wearing our designs meant the world to us! Cheers, friend! Side note – we specially designed this gota + kundan + Kiran plazzo ensemble to complement Wajiha‚Äôs heirloom emerald + gold jewelry set which has been passed down for many generations. The set was crafted in the ‚ÄúAmritsari‚ÄĚ style of Real gold ‚ÄúJadau‚ÄĚ – an extremely rare find nowadays. We believe ensembles should be made so that they tell a story – as does this one. A momento of past and present. + + + + #bhkazimov #fightcancer #gota #plazzo #heirloom #hellopakistan #pakistanstreetstyle #indianstreetfashion #pakistanifashion #indianfashion #instafashion #indianwedding #pakistaniwedding #la #mendhi #nyc #karachi #lahore #delhi #vogueindia #pakistanvogue #punjabi #mendhi #familystory #tradition #sangeet #heritage #bespoke #couture #clientdiaries

The trend can be traced back to Punjabi culture when the women of the family would get together to sew the jora together

Earlier this year, the trend really blew up after high-end designers incorporated the kaam in their work

The shorter kirans have definitely been used for formals, especially bridals

Again, it just elevates an outfit.

Somehow, this kaam just goes so beautifully with EVERY color. 

There’s just something oh so magical about¬†gota¬†wala¬†kaam¬†

There’s just a whole other level of magic with the ivory and gold combo¬†

I mean, do you need any more proof

The trend is very representative of a very rich culture of families coming together and it also celebrates the tradition of karigari and gota. 

So are you going to use this trend this¬†shaadi¬†season? Let us know, and maybe share your looks too ūüôā
