Details of the ‘pictures’ on Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari’s engagement shawl revealed

- Famous designer Nida Azwer has revealed the concept behind designing Bakhtawar’s engagement shawl.
- The designer said Bakhtawar particularly wanted her mother to be a part of her special day.
On Thursday, the daughter of late Benazir Bhutto and former President Asif Ali Zardari, Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari, posted a photograph of herself from her engagement ceremony on Instagram.
Last week, Bakhtawar and her fiancé, Mehmood Chaudhry, exchanged rings in the presence of close friends and family at Bilawal House, Karachi.
She wore a beautiful tea pink-colored outfit paired with a unique embroidered shawl on her special day.
“Can you spot my mother on my shawl?” She asked her Instagram followers.
A famous Pakistani designer, Nida Azwer, beautifully and thoughtfully designed the shawl. It was intended to narrate Bakhtawar’s life journey from Benazir’s daughter to Mehmood Chaudhry’s fiancé.
Speaking to a source, Nida Azwer said that the shawl had two ‘pallus’, narrating two different stories of Bakhtawar’s life. She said, “One side had pictures of Bakhtawar’s parents’ wedding day with her mother Benazir sitting on one side and her father Asif Ali Zardari on the other.”
The designer added, “There were also Bakhtawar’s childhood images on the shawl where she and her siblings were playing; “an illustration of her grandmother, a desk with Pakistan’s flag on it, a study with books on the shelves, Bakhtawar with her mobile phone and McDonald’s fries along with nuggets perhaps because she and her siblings used to like eating them.”
The other side of the shawl unfolded Bakhtawar’s current life events such as her home, garden, pet dogs, and how she met Mehmood Chaudhry, how he proposed to her.
Nida concluded, “The central panel was engraved with the sky and the sun, with beautiful birds flying on it, keeping together the two sides to Bakhtawar’s world.”
