Most of the saris were handmade and embroidered with traditional sari blouses having embellishment of pearls, crystals, beads and sequence work.
The clothes were an amalgamation of hues, ravishing and glittering styles with pale and vibrant shades on heavy and light fabrics such as silk, chiffon, crepe, cotton, and chickenkari.

Dubash showcases jewellery studded with diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires, tanzanite and semi-precious stones.
“I have been visiting Pakistan for over a decade now, and I always feel pleasant to be here to display my collection exclusively designed for females. Since both countries” culture, traditions and folklore are same and so is the code of dressing. And my work has always been appreciated by Pakistani women,” The Daily Times quoted Dubash as saying.

The exhibition will last till November 7, before being held in Lahore, Karachi and Peshawar. (ANI)
