Versatile and vintage; this attire is embedded deep into our couture culture. Although traditionally worn by men in the olden days, Kurtas for women is one of the frequently-opted items of raiment today. From traditional socials like weddings, religious gatherings, festive occasions to semi-formal, quotidian wear, long kurtis for women or kurtas have become a staple in the Indian woman’s wardrobe.
Kurta for women has evolved in manifold ways in the last few decades. Even the number of methods of styling, teaming and accessorizing a Kurta has amplified. The mainstream Kurta is no longer confined to the limits of churidaar (fitted pants with gatherings at the bottom) or salwar (loose, pleated pants with tapered ends). The teaming of a basic Kurta for women or short kurti with trousers or even denim pants has sat efficiently with Indian women since as long as we can remember. Such is the case with ethnic Indian Kurtas too.
The infatuation with the classic and timeless piece of ensemble will never fade with time. We could not take it within ourselves to break this everlasting couture affair with the humble Kurta and thus, cherish it by highlighting some of the statement creations by Falguni Shane Peacock.
