‘In Lahori, there are many people who are making traditional wedding gowns, and you can find them at many stores.’

She says her family was also a big inspiration for the bride-to-be.
‘Our parents are Muslim and they make the traditional dresses.’
We also love to dress our children’s cousins,’ she added.
‘So I have asked my husband not to wear any other traditional dresses.’
She was also inspired by her mother.
‘Many people wear traditional dresses at weddings, so this was a good choice for me to make,’ she laughs.’
And I have always wanted to be able to dress up like my mother- sister,’ she adds.
‘Hopefully it will inspire a lot more people to dress like their mothers and sisters.
‘To wear traditional wedding clothes, you need to be very good at making them, and it will give you more confidence when you’re going to have kids.’
