Default Dressmakers bring touch of old Afghanistan to Pakistan

Dressmakers bring touch of old Afghanistan to Pakistan

Western-style bridal wear and cocktail dresses, Afghan tailors driven out of their homeland by the Taliban are carving a niche for themselves in Islamabad.

Their stores stand between rows of animal carcasses and car workshops in Islamabad's grubby Peshawar Mor neighbourhood known more as a haven for refugees than a home for glamour.

In Pakistan, dresses are normally the preserve of a tiny liberal elite, with most women more likely to be seen in public wearing the traditional baggy shalwar kameez.

Raza Sakhi, a portly 43-year-old of ethnic Tajik heritage who fled Afghanistan when it came under control of the hardline Taliban, said those trends are now slowly changing in Pakistan.

"I shifted to Pakistan in 1996. I have been here now 19 years. I sell bridal dresses and maxi dresses," he says, sitting behind a row of mannequins.
