One-of-a-Kind Sangeet Dresses
The Sangeet is one of the most energetic and significant events leading up to the main ritual of the big fat Indian wedding. There is gaiety, music, admirably choreographed dancing on a stage all decked up, feasting, and generally a lot of cheer all around. Finely woven Chanderi lehengas, glistening Banarasi drapes, and separates that host iconic intricate embroideries and embellishments from across the country blend right in.
You could wear a lehenga of the established kalidar style with a sultry blouse, the whole set embellished with gota-patti or mirror work, or you could also choose lehengas that reflect interesting influences with their sea-shell tassels and ruffled layers. You could pick subtle embroidered kurtas or set the mood with brocade – a craft that can never go wrong and a popular choice for women’s and men’s clothing alike.
Puja Dresses for Men and Women
A festive time close to the hearts of many is the Navratri. There is worship – “puja”, there is fasting, and then there’s eager feasting on traditional meals and famous sweets. A basic aspect of Indian festival observances is new clothes signifying new beginnings.
Women and girls’ wardrobes can be topped up with the staple kurta of varying lengths, effortless silhouettes like asymmetrical kurtas, embroidered dresses with drapes, handloom sarees, lehenga dresses in silk complete with jacket, sharara sets adorned with sequins or zardozi, georgette dupattas and stoles, pre-stitched chiffon sarees, off-shoulder saree dresses with gold motifs, and the smoothly layered combination of anarkali with flared lehenga.
On the other hand, men and boys can look dapper in classy kurtas with bundi jackets in cotton or linen base paired with matching pants, raw silk jackets complimenting dhoti pants and floral embroidered kurtas, choga style kurtas, silk velvet bandhgala jackets, jackets in Chanderi with an interesting Shibori touch, embellished silk sherwanis and men’s angrakhas.
