Fashion In A Different Language: Indian

Welcome to another edition of Fashion In A Different Language. In my previous post, I introduced a different language of fashion which was the ”African” interpretation of this topic. Another language that always gets me intrigued is the ”Indian” way of clothing. Talking about vibrant colors! Let’s not even talk about the breathtaking fabrics used in the clothing! When it comes to Indian style, a lot of aspects have a meaning. Such as the jewelry, the red powder on the forehead, the colors of the saree. This can refer to for example being a newly wed. Saree is one of the tradional garments in India which is worn by the majority. However this isn’t the only one they have. India is huge! Different cultures, languages and beliefs are established throughout the whole country. This translates into clothing as well. Besides the Saree they have the Churidaar & Punjabi Suit. The clothes might be the most common 3 different types of tradional garments worn in villages and cities in India but the people have one thing in common, and that is the way they represent, live and express themselves through life’s given colors.
The Saree:

The Churidaar
The Punjabi Suit

    Stunning! India had to be one of my favorite cultures to study about in art history, and their detailed clothing is no exception.
