Piya Pal, “the Ethnic Fashion That Rules the Trends in India Has a Long History of Diversity.”

Ethnic is a way of living and it portrays the culture and living of various groups of people. India is a diverse country that adorns different cultures and religions. The customs celebrated and followed by Indians vary across the country. The people coming from different cultural backgrounds might have a story behind each of their traditional attires.

Piya Pal, an Indian fashion model who is very keen towards blending India’s cultural aura with the modern fitting clothes, has always embraced the fashion diversity in India through her style and way of dressing often. “Attires like Sari or the salwar-kameez allows to experiment with colours, design, motifs and is easy to mix and match with the modern trendy clothing. I am fascinated by the print collaborations and the unique designs that are only seen I’m the ethnic clothing style in our country. It’s although seems as if each of the print has a history behind them with a ravishing story to be unveiled.”

Piya being a fashion model who’s very close to the Indian cultural backgrounds and living, incorporates most of her day clothing with shades of Indian cultural ethnic wear. She has done and collaborated in some fashion ramps to uphold the cultural diversity of fashion in India.

As Piya observes the change in fashion over the few years, she feels that ethnic wear in India was largely reserved for occasions, festivals and weddings. But in the course of time, as functionality and comfort started taking a centerstage in fashion, the entire ethnic way of clothing style took a different direction with women and men slaying the street fashion in India with their well woven, printed and detailed, ethnic clothes.

“The ethnic fashion that rules the trends in India has a long history of diversity. The traditional Salwar-Kurta or the Salwar-Kameez was the result of the practice followed by Muslim women to wear divided garments during the Mughal period. The ‘Lehenga’ is another dress that had its origins during Mughal times. Even now, we can see that many makes use of Mughal era patterns and designs though it has been influenced by several modern prints which gives it a different outlook altogether”, Piya says.

Indian saree is the one attire that has won the hearts of many,even across the globe. “The beautiful weaves and designs on sarees makes one wonder about the creativity of these weavers. Different regions of India have different specialty and variety of sarees. Banarsi saree, Pochampally saree or PochampalliIkat in Andhra, Muga silk, Kanjivaram saree are some of the most iconic ones among the designs in India. The sight of one in a saree is something for the eyes to behold”, says Piya who has a soft corner for saree in most of the formal occasions.

These ethnic dresses carry with them our age old traditions that keep us connected to our roots and make us enjoy our vibrant cultures. Piya adds that, “It’s important to embrace it as deep as we can to preserve our culture developed over the years.”
