Khada Dupatta Draping Tutorial

All I need is a palace and a prince!



This is a tutorial on how to drape the Hyderabadi Khada Dupatta. This is an outfit inspired by the Royal Mughal ara and still worn by Hyderabadi brides today.
There are differences in they way it is worn. Some favour this look whilst others prefer the drape all on one shoulder. They can be very ornate …. some over the top…reserved for the wedding day whilst other less heavier dupattas can be simpler for the other wedding functions before the main and can be worn by guests attending a wedding.

Traditionally gifted to the bride by the mother in law, it is often made to weigh more and be very heavily embroidered as a show of wealth..often competing with others ‘dupatta’s’ These dupattas are often treated as heirloom pieces and passed down from generations.

I do hope you find this tutorial useful. This particular outfit was designed by my business partner Samina Khan under our brand DIVA. As I have commissioned this piece as a personal outfit, especially for the tutorial, I have paid for this at normal. The jewellery is also bought by me.
