Bridal Uniform: Pakistani Designer’s Protest Against Child Marriages

Pakistani designer Ali Xeeshan did something incredible at HUM Bridal Couture Week. The designer chose a young teenage girl to walk down the ramp wearing a “Bridal Uniform”. The whole auditorium stunned and went speechless because the girl bedecked in bridal jewellery but wearing a school uniform made an everlasting impact.

The girl wore a blue salwar kameez with gota patti work, an elaborate maang tika, a big nose ring and hands painted with mehendi.

UN Women Pakistan tweeted:

“A girl walked the Hum Bridal Couture Week 2017 ramp wearing a school uniform embellished with bridal motifs; symbolising the unfortunate trade-off.”

More than 20 percent of Pakistani women are married off before the age of 18. UNWP has started a campaign #BridalUniform asking people to sign a petition that “could turn this conversation into a topic of discussion in the Parliament.”

Actress Mahira Khan signed the petition, “Stand for education and stop child marriages. Join UN Women Pakistan so girls can just be girls, not brides. I signed the petition, you should too.”

Singer Momina Mustehsan tweeted: “Join us to help girls just be girls, not brides in their childhood. Sign the petition! thebridaluniform.com/sign-petition/ #BridalUniform #UNWomen.”
