On Monday, Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan landed in Washington DC to meet the president of United States of America Donald Trump.
President Trump and Prime Minister Khan discussed a range of issues, including counter terrorism, defense, energy, and trade, with the goal of creating the conditions for a peaceful South Asia and an enduring partnership between the countries.
As seen many times, Imran Khan likes to wear traditional clothes like he wore a sherwani on his oath taking ceremony. He is a huge fan of Peshawari chappals (sandals), monochromatic kameez (tunics) and white shalwars (loose trousers), topped with a blazer or a structured waistcoat.
When Imran Khan arrived at the White House, his attire mezmerised everyone. He chose to wear a navy blue traditional shalwar kameez with a same color blazer on top and a peshawari chappal.
In the past, Pakistani heads of state and high-ranking officials meeting world leaders, particularly in the US, have opted for a suit and tie, but Khan broke the trend!
However, wearing traditional dress is not an unprecedented territory. Former president Zia-ul-Haq was the first Paksitani leader who wore a Sherwani to the white house in 1982.
