ave also changed with loca

have also changed with local creativity, internal processes of change, and external influences. The costumes of the bride and groom will sometimes be especially embellished and meticulously worked versions of everyday clothes, such as shalwar kameez. This is a type of folk dress used both by men and women in large areas of Pakistan. Certain wedding costumes include pieces of clothing that are no longer in everyday use. The man’s coat sherwani is one example of clothing that has been in continuous use but has gradually ceased being daily wear. The trousers gharara were used in the Mogul Empire, and have in later years become a popular part of the wedding clothes in certain parts of Pakistan.
