Fancy and traditional Pashtoon Afghani frocks !!!

Pashtoons and Afghans have a very rich traditional culture. Its colorful dresses and frocks are very much popular. They looks very fabulous and pleasant. Usually pure Afghani dresses are difficult to find in Pakistan now. There was a time when Afghanistan people migrated to Pakistan during 1980,s. It was a time when Peshawar was heavily crowded with these immigrants. Immigrations always leads to acculturation where two different cultures mix together. Such type of situation make the locals to adopt the new culture some patterns according to its needs. Mostly people do adopt the fashion trends especially in dresses.
You may get some more stuff here.
