During these hard times, people aren’t looking to spend exorbitant amounts of their hard-earned cash on stuff they could probably get for a cheaper price. However, with Eid around the corner, brands are releasing their collections, and they’re kinda expensive. One brand is being dragged on Twitter after releasing their dupatta prices. With people picking up on the prices and photography both, the brand has become a hot topic.
You are selling the Dupatas for 20K-22K? And you are using this kind of photography? Also, what do these Dupatas do? Do they walk? Do they run? 20K? pic.twitter.com/5G3H0LKIhK

Most of the people took it in a more humorous way, with many questioning its magical abilities.

Some people even suggested that the photographed clothes come with the land shown in the photos.
Now wouldn’t that be one good deal? Who wouldn’t want to buy a dupatta that came with a piece of land attached? We know we would.

However, a few mentioned how such an amount could benefit people in need.
20 Families can be dressed well in backward villages of Pakistan.
If someone has a good Heart, try this. You will feel piece.
BTW, The people who buy these expensive Duppatas, will never wear them for what they are made. https://t.co/Vyhq7cG4vY

Twenty three thousand rupees for a dupatta? That’s over 500 dhs. You can get a decent dress under this amount. Wtf. What brand is this. https://t.co/tqScP7H0tW

Someone rightly pointed out the photography and styling does not go with the price tag.
With one photo in which a hand is seen holding a stick with a dupatta hanging over it, we can’t seem to figure out the art direction too.
The dupatta is hanging on a dandi literally and the whole earthy vibe in the photo spells simplicity, but costs almost 24 k. pic.twitter.com/06w0VqkJK4
