Ajrak in vogue?!

Just saw this interesting little picture of a girl taken in New York by Scott Schuman posted on his famous fashion blog The Sartorialist . Whats immediately noticeable and catches the eye is the uncanny resemblance of her skirt to the standard ajrak design patterns being made in Sindh, Pakistan since 3000 BC.

It just highlights the potential of Pakistani traditional fabrics, designs, handicrafts and rich history; and how it, when crafted and presented fashionably, is more than worthy of being donned by NY’s rich and famous. On a lighter note, Yay! for Ajrak getting in vogue after 5000 years. Haha!
