Be Indian, wear Indian. Go local, as we pay an ode to Swadeshi wear.
As India celebrates Independence Day on 15 August, we look at styles and looks that celebrate at our Indian tradition, culture and craftsmanship. When speaking of Indian textiles and crafts, the first style that comes to mind is Khadi. What started as a fabric of freedom and as a symbol of strength has now become a huge fashion and style statement.
Over the years, Indian designers have glorified Khadi and turned it into a timeless fabric, a must-have in every wardrobe. Here, we bring you some Khadi looks with a fresh twist of creativity. Get inspired.
Crimped free flowing hair takes the khadi attire up a notch higher.
A refreshing touch of make-up is good to go.
Go low key with a hint of jewellery.
Go Indian with your connections.
Dark kohl-rimmed eyes and khadi is the sexiest combo we’ve seen on the ramp.
Add a pop of colour to your make-up for a vibrant look.
Make a genuine connection with your roots.
