From Shalwars to Harem Pants


I always wondered when our Shalwar style pants would make it to the runway of Internation Fashion Weeks. Well the time is here.

“Harem pants” (or Sultan pants) as they call them are finally sneaking their way into the Western world. They were big in New York Fashion Week. Supposedly the trend was first started (or brought to the west) by a French Editor. And now all the top designers are including the style in their collections.

I think the next 10 years in International fashion will be more about concealing and showing less and less skin.

I won’t be surprised if the Dupatta on the head or a hijab like scarf is the next big trend.

Below are some photos.
