Yes! This is how Maxima got her Pakistani prom dress

During the wedding in Jordan, Maxima wore a rich, embroidered dress from Pakistan. You may be wondering how the Queen got the dress. You can read more in this blog.

For those who missed it: the Maxima dress designed and made by Mahbara Khan, a luxury label from Pakistan. Now of course this country is not around the corner and online ordering is not possible either. How did the Queen get a dress from Mabara Khan? This turned out to be less complicated than the case might seem. In November 2019, Maxima visited Pakistan during a trip to the United Nations. Also on the program was a visit to a tailor in Lahore and yes: it turned out to be Mahbara Khan. During a conversation about entrepreneurship and inclusive finance, the Queen was handed a brown box containing the dress that appeared last Thursday.

on Video from Royal TV By Rick Evers the box can also be seen and if you look closely you can see the original design on a mannequin on the left.

The original design is what is called lehenga choli. The indigenous Indian costume consisted of a richly embroidered blouse ending above the navel, a long skirt and a fine stole that could cover the head and neck. Nice looking, but less fit for a Dutch queen. For Máxima, the design was executed in the form of a dress, therefore without sheer at the waist and with long sleeves.
