A stitch in time

Indo western is in. And Indian ethnic wear is here to stay. The six yard saree has only become more popular, despite the changing fashion trends. The salwar kameez has earned itself a fine reputation as one of the most comfortable attires with Indian women, an all time favourite with housewives and working women. Simple, elegant and modest, it makes a great attire for any season and just about any occasion.

The Indo-western wear (a fusion of Indian ethnic wear and western wear) basically consists of short Kurta or Kurti with a trouser. Just wrap a gorgeous bright coloured stole / scarf around your neck and lo…you are ready to walk the fashion ramp.

Short Kameez with Patiala salwar, Parallels and Churidars and short designer dupattas look absolutely stunning. The Chaniya Choli popularly known as Lehanga Choli, Sharara, Garara and Laacha with tight fitting tops rather than usual Choli with deep side cuts, are also trendy and chic. Made up of rich brocades and vibrant rainbow colours, they make a perfect choice for those special occasions.

For daily wear Bandhani, Batik, Block and handprints are just ideal. For wedding parties and other festivities, Kanchipuram and Banarsi silk sarees with suitable jewellery can do wonders.

Silk and Khadi kurta is also hot and happening. Traditional beads, Mirror work, Kundan, Resham and Zari embroidery designs are popular among the youth. Fashion designers are experimenting with ancient Patola styles of Gujarat, Chikankari of Lucknow, Punjabi Phulkari and Hyderabadi designs to create a prêt-à-porter collection.

Types of fabric ranges from cotton to soft georgette, chiffon and graceful silk to chic look leather and velvet. Cotton is always in demand in summers because it is skin friendly, cool and easy to carry but requires good maintenance. Silk adds glamour and is available in exclusive varieties. Velvet is popular for its soft mushy touch.
