Rashida makes gorgeous North Kashmiri clothes


Rashida models her diamond decorated Dhorti trousers based on a design from North Kashmir

Tasneem Ali, WEA tutor at the Shama Womens’ Centre has been working with students all year to design and make some gorgeous Asian clothes. 

Tas says, ‘These are pictures of my student, Rashida. The trousers she is wearing are called Dhorti trousers.  They consist of many diamonds and Rashida is very proud of them, hence her modelling! They are most commonly worn in North Kashmir.’

We love the colourful kameez top, too.
