The dressing style of a Sikh bridegroom was presented for the first time at a fashion show in Pakistan. The show was organised by Pakistani fashion designers Khadija Karim and Obaid Sheikh recently. Taranjeet Singh, the Sikh model, walked the ramp in a mustard and gold sherwani complete with a matching saffron turban and a sword in the hand. The model accompanying him was attired as a traditional Punjabi bride in a red ornate lehenga. “I wanted to show people in Pakistan how we dress up at Punjabi weddings. I convinced the makers of the show to include the Sikh bridegroom item in the show,” Taranjeet has been quoted by a fashion magazine from India.
The makers of the show announced that this theme will be introduced in various fashion shows in Karachi, Islamabad and other places in Pakistan. Sikhs are a miniscule minority in Pakistan today but the religion has an extensive heritage and history in Pakistan.
