Pheran through the Mists of Centuries
The present study was conducted to find out the historical perspective, different styles and decorative aspects of traditional Kashmiri attire i.e., Pheran. The study focused on the assessment of modified versions of Pheran which were designed according to latest fashion trends. The most preferred styles were stitched and analyzed by taking opinion of under graduate girls students through a self-constructed questionnaire. The three types of Pheran i.e., Mughal, Kurta and Modern style were designed by flat-pattern method. According to the findings, the most appreciated style among them was Mughal. After taking the source of inspiration from the oriental costumes, various beautiful and attractive designs can be produced. The study will be beneficial in gaining attention of young fashion designers and consumers at national and international levels.
