Some of my fondest childhood memories consist of decorating the house with buntings, playing ‘Aey Jawaan’ repeatedly on the tape recorder, getting festive badges of Pakistani flag from my uncle and most importantly dressing in green and white for celebration of Independence Day at school.
Now while I still do love the idea of a plain white shalwar kameez with a green dupatta, it is pleasing to see a good variety of Independence Day clothing collections to transition in as an adult. Yasmin Zaman, a Pakistani fashion designer, has come up with one such mini range of 4 green and white kurtas, called Azaadi Collection, this year to celebrate the 14th August in style.
Yasmin has kept the colour palette pretty traditional, concentrating more on the cuts and layers of the fabrics used. The price range is also quite reasonable at 2200-2600 PKR. For more information visit Yasmin Zaman’s Facebook page.
