Originally the traditional dress of the Punjab region, the shalwar kameez gradually became popular among men and women throughout India. One of the most popular styles of Shalwar Kameez during that era was the Anarkali suit. It was considered to be one of the most opulent forms of the garment in the market. The Anarkali suit is characterized by a long kurta that flares out from under the waistline. It had a lot of rich embroidery work and was always considered synonymous to richness and grandeur. Many Mughal courtesans and members of the Royal family used to wear Anarkali suits because of their strong Persian influence.

Now when Pakistan came into being, it was declared as a symbol to unite Pakistanis as one.
