Bakhtawar gives insights on Shawl she wore during the engagement ceremony

Former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and former president Asif Ali Zardari’s daughter Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari had got engaged to Mahmood Younas Chaudhry at a ceremony at Bilawal House in Karachi last month.

People from the two families and senior leaders of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) had attended the ceremony.

But Bakhtawar kept her and PPP followers updated about the key moments of her life and ceremony as well by sharing through social media platforms.

She took once again Instagram to give some more insights about the beautiful shawl she wore during the ceremony.

“Wanted to showcase #ShawlDetails beautiful craftsmanship in fabric and thread by @nidaazweratelier & her team of very talented Pakistanis who specialise in fine handcraft,” she wrote with a beautiful close picture of the Shawl.

“I really wanted my mother to be part of this very special moment. The design of the shawl is divided into three chapters (two pallus) telling two different stories.

“One side is embroidered with images and childhood memories of us growing up in Islamabad and the other side captures the start of my next chapter in life where a scene is set where the groom can be seen arriving with a ring and preparations are in place for the engagement event.

“The central panel is etched with the sun and the sky, with beautiful birds flying on it holding together the two chapters of life.”

And after that, she also shared a light comment about the bride and groom of a Mughal-era period depicted on the Shawl.

“We took inspiration and inference from old Mughal miniature paintings depicting moments of life and scenery, but we translated everyday life with a lot of fun and relevance - the groom is seen in a window ready to March but the bride is on the other side preoccupied with her phone/Instagram/music.”
