Ethnic wear is loved all over India (and the world in fact!) for its elegance and grace. We all wear jeans, dresses, and tops on a daily basis, but nothing can ever quite match the charm of traditional clothing. The vibrancy and versatility of ethnic fashion adds to any individual’s poise and style since they look good on every body type. Traditional wear is the only kind of attire that can be worn at home, at work, and outdoors simply because it is easily multipurpose and so comfortable!
Ethnic fashion has taken on a new turn this decade across the entire country. Newer styles are coming out each year that equally caters to modern day lifestyles and clothing choices. Moreover, increased awareness of artisan work and craftsmanship is redefining how we buy clothes today. The Indian apparel market is flooded with brands like FabIndia, W, Biba, Aurelia, and many others that marry traditional wear with modern designs.
Among the slew of such labels out there, one name that stands out is Farida Gupta, a Delhi-based ethnic-wear label dedicated to keeping traditional cloth making techniques alive by designing contemporary garments.
