A whole range of wears – right from wedding, party, summer wear, casual bags, caps, gowns, pants to plazos – are up for grabs at the ‘Crochet in Style Exhibition’ which is on till April 18, 2023, at Hotel Aroma from 11 am to 10 pm daily. The exhibition has been put up under the banner of the label ‘Pali’s Zameen Asmaan.’ The intricate Crochet garments are a must-have for the stylish and sophisticated!
‘Pali’s Zameen Asmaan’ was established by Pali Waraich, an 82-year-old fashion designer who has been working for the empowerment of women from weaker sections of society for the last 30 years. Today, more than 200 poor women are helping her with garment production work.
“I wish to give employment to the maximum number of old and destitute women, who can earn sitting in their homes. I strongly feel that the economic empowerment of women can only be done by giving them employment so that these women can earn a decent amount every month which gives them dignity and self-respect. This will help them against any ill-treatment by their husbands and in-laws,” said Pali.
Pali Waraich further said, “I started making creative designs and giving work to poor women to make items using the art of Crochet, which is an ancient art and if properly used in a dress, it can add immense elegance to it.”
