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 and Ubaid Khan 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,” says Taranjeet.

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 minuscule minority in Pakistan today but the religion has an extensive heritage and history in Pakistan. One of the most revered shrines of the community is located at Nankana Sahib, the birthplace of the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev, in Pakistan’s Punjab province.
