    The National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage (Lok Virsa) has created a new Diorama on "Ethnic Wedding Costumes of Pakistan (Women)" depicting wedding/traditional costumes from all provinces, Gilgit-Baltistan and Kashmir

    ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 10th Jan, 2019 ) :The National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage (Lok Virsa) has created a new Diorama on "Ethnic Wedding Costumes of Pakistan (Women)" depicting wedding/traditional costumes from all provinces, Gilgit-Baltistan and Kashmir.

    The diorama was inaugurated here Thursday at Heritage Museum in a colorful ceremony featuring a specially produced "Traditional/Wedding Costumes Show" presented by male and female models on ramp on the beautiful tunes of the popular folk musical instruments (Rabab, Santoor, Alghoza, Dandung, Saroz, Flute, etc.). Live folk musical performances by folk artistes and folk musicians also mesmerized the audience.

    Speaking on the occasion, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Zahida Parveen said that costumes and jewelry have a unique place in cultural heritage as they not only reflect the identity of a culture but also have historical influence.

    Lok Virsa has preserved this part of heritage for coming generation, she said and lauded the efforts of Lok Virsa to promote various aspects of cultural heritage of Pakistan for young generation.

    Lok Virsa is a specialized institution dealing with research, collection, documentation, preservation and dissemination of the Pakistan's traditional culture.

    Established in the year 1974, the Institute has made notable achievements in the field of culture at home and abroad. These include establishment of the first ethnological museum in Pakistan, officially named as Pakistan National Museum of Ethnology and popularly known as "Heritage Museum".

    The Museum depicts living cultural traditions and lifestyles of the people covering whole Pakistan including remote and far-flung areas, presented through three-dimensional creative manner.

    The Museum has a covered area of 60,000 square feet which makes it the largest Museum in
    Pakistan. Besides documenting the indigenous folk heritage of Pakistan, the Museum also projects cultures of other friendly and brotherly countries that share similarities and influences with the culture of Pakistan including China, Iran, Turkey and Central Asian States through various link passages showcasing artifacts contributed by them.

    The Museum is an important show-window on Pakistan's living culture which is frequented by around fifty thousand visitors a month. This includes VIP delegates, dignitaries, state guests, students, researchers and general public.

    The improvement of the existing displays and the creation of new dioramas is an on-going process at the Museum, said the organizers.

    You have to be an edge lord to wear something with this level of embroidery most groom dresses are plain coloured or have simple patterns
    Extreme left and right are something you would actually see :D
    Most prefer something simple

    I thought women do not like being told what to wear. Do designers have constitutional immunity for this?

    Of course it depends. You might know some kaanjar people, but a lot of villagers in Pakistan do not. I honestly do not know anyone other than Isloos, Lahoris, or Karachites that wear this type of whore like clothing in their own weddings.
