What I Wore: Amir Khan's Wedding


Dress - custom made

Hello!

It's been a while since I last posted my previous outfit post, nevertheless, I thought I would take this opportunity to show you all what a Pakistani dress looks like! This dress was custom made for me, and I think it's pretty amazing! I just love the bold, vibrant colours and combination of different fabrics, I think it makes a very classic ensemble, perfect for evening wear. Regular readers of my blog will know that I adore clothing from India and Pakistan; I think that they look so beautiful and the beautiful, bright colours look simply divine! With my wardrobe, I try to achieve a balance between eastern and western clothing, I aim to embrace both cultures and one major way in which I emulate this is through my clothing choices. Trends come and go, but I truly believe that entering a whole other culture's fashion market is just a whole other experience in itself.

I wore this outfit to Amir Khan and Faryal Makhdoom's wedding, although it was a while ago, the wedding was honestly epic, and it's not everyday that you get to attend a celebrity's wedding! I would have loved to upload some pictures, but unfortunately photography was banned on the night. (you can, however, view some pictures online here)  

I've really been enjoying post-exam life, it's super chilled and so relaxing! Most of the time you will probably find me either eating, sleeping or shopping, but recently I've also been developing some new hobbies, like Islam art calligraphy and professional jewellery making. I, along with a friend, have started volunteering at a local charity shop, which has so far been a wonderful and humbling experience. Some kind people donate incredible things to charity shops, the shop which I have started working at has received some fantastic donations including a vintage fine china set and a couple of genuine designer goods too. This being said, I would totally recommend to any keen thrifters out there to rummage through your local charity shops thoroughly, as you'll be surprised as to what you may find!

Love from,

Miss Iffa

  21. I love your dress!! I live in Dubai and here it is very common to see saris and indian - pakistani looks. I have one too -a good friend gave it to me- but I have some little problem with the sari situation (as Bryan Boy would say!). Do you have any tutorial about how to fold it so beautifully? If not, that would be a suggestion for your Youtube Channel.
