About Me

Lehenga is a garment that is draped around your waist. Let us say like a skirt. However it is normally ankle length. It gets its early origin from the Moghul period. When the Mughals invaded and India and conquered it, the queens of the period used to wear a long skirt type of thing known as lehenga accompanied with a choli and duppatta and decked up with heavy jewelry. It was then considered to be a dress of high society for the queens.

The girls, women of those days used to wear lehengas as their daily wear clothes like we wear jeans and t-shirts! But later on with the development in the fashion world, it became more lehenga for 12 year girl of a fashion statement for girls and women, but this attire has largely been left for special occasions. But even in villages nowadays also, women and young girls are found wearing lehengas in their daily life.

It is a very elegant garment and is usually worn along with a dupatta (say like a stole or a shawl) and a choli (like a shirt or a top). Indian women wear many kinds of clothes and they range from the sari to slawar kameez. However Lehenga holds a special place in these garments.

With the world becoming global, the traditional Indian attires have been applauded through out the world. With our fashion designers making the borders of countries dissolve, the traditional Indian dresses are now even worn across the borders.
