As Prime Minister Imran Khan returns from his maiden trip to the United States, everyone can’t help but gush over him, his speeches, media interviews and interactions with President Donald Trump.
Pakistanis were also appreciative of his choice of attire for his White House visit. Undoubtedly, the premiere was looking graceful in a dark blue shalwar kameez and waistcoat.
Sharing a picture of PM Khan with Trump, Pakistani brand Mohtaram had claimed that the premiere was dressed in an outfit designed by them. The brand, which has dressed a plethora of A-list celebrities, has previously designed several outfits for PM Khan.
The founder of the brand, Fahad Saif, made multiple appearances on media channels and discussed how he designed the outfit for the prime minister.
However, late Wednesday night, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Overseas Pakistanis Syed Zulfi Bukhari took to Twitter to clarify that the cloth of PM Imran’s outfit was bought by the First Lady and stitched by a local tailor and “whichever designer is trying to claim credit for it is not only a liar but a cheat.”
Following Zulfi’s tweet, Mohtaram issued a clarification on their social media.
Mohtaram refused to comment further on the matter when we reached out to them.
