Celebrity couple Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain on Sunday announced that they are expecting their bundle of joy this July.
Sharing beautiful pictures from Iqra’s godh bharai (baby shower) the couple shared the news with their fans and followers and asked them to pray for them.
For the event, Iqra chose a gorgeous purple and orange outfit by Fahad Hussayn and the designer has revealed that the dupatta had a special message on it for the mother-to-be. As per details, 100 special messages and prayers in Urdu have been crafted on the embellished dupatta with a floral design.
In a conversation with Dawn Images, Hussayn recalled Aziz reaching out to him when she was planning her godh bharai.
“I loved that she was having a godh bharai rather than a westernised bridal shower,” said the designer. “She told me that she wanted to wear something that she could pass on to her child and we started working on a concept. I asked her to come up with a list of 100 duas, which she did with the help of Yasir and her mother.”
Hussayn then designed 100 different flowers and the messages were embroidered around them.
“[The duas are] all the wishes she has for her child. If it’s a girl, she wants to pass this dupatta on to her and if it’s a son, then to his wife,” shared Hussayn adding that the list includes advice like “ilm sub say bari daulat hai” (knowledge is the greatest wealth) and “logon ke saath bhalai karo gay toh log bhi tumharay saath bhalai karein gay” (be kind to others and they will be kind to you).
The organza dupatta was paired with a simple peshwas and gharara in chiffon worked with sacha gota.
Hussayn also shared that Iqra allowed him to decid the colour himself.
Iqra was recently featured in Hussayn’s fashion music video Mera Jora that was released earlier this year. Incidentally, the video was filmed shortly after Aziz discovered that she was expecting.
“I am very happy for her. She’s an extremely genuine person and this is a very happy time for her. She may be at the peak of her career but she’s also prioritising her family life,” said the designer. “I think more than anything else, the coronavirus has made us all realise the importance of being surrounded by family.”
