Welcome to the Fashion Big Leagues, India

While the fashion weeks of the Western world are a fashion lover’s dream, it may be time to pay attention to the trends in nation’s outside the traditional big dogs. European designers decided resort style for 2016 is inspired by traditional Indian patterns, but current Indian fashion is far beyond that.

It’s surprisingly not as traditional as people still believe it to be. Of course, designers don’t want to stray too far from the indian culture and copy western fashion.

Designers add western cuts to the grandiose Indian culture. So while people are still flaunting gorgeous saris and lenghas, there is much much more to the Indian fashion world. Stunning, floor-length skirts ending are paired with crop tops (or sari blouses) to accentuate curves and make everyone look like royalty.
