Elegance and Simplicity In Ethnic Day

Hey Guys,
Hope you all are doing good. Today, I am here with a new post wearing something that I love to wear, and that’s Saree. In collaboration with @craftsvilla, I have received this beautiful Saree and I am so in love with it, starting from its colour to its material. It’s just perfect! Thanks @craftsvilla! 🙂 In @craftsvilla you’ll find varieties of items from clothing to jewelries and also other different types of accessories.

#CraftsvillaWorldEthnicDay

on 19th of June

I am very glad to be part of this thoughtful initiative.

In this post I have worn a beautiful floral printed Crepe Saree and a matching blouse of the same material. This peach printed Saree has a very fresh look and it’s perfect for your summer collection. This floral Saree is a breath of fresh air breezing in this summer heat. The colour is young and vibrant. The material gives a calm and soothing touch on the skin. It is a must have if you are a Saree lover. It is suitable for events like ethnic day, wedding or a party. This Saree is totally an attention grabber in the room full of people.

As you can see, I like minimal jewellery with this outfit, so an earring, a bracelet and a finger ring were the three sure shot accessory items to get my hands on. This Saree is a statement by itself and I would suggest that light and small jewellery will look outstanding with this outfit.

Ethnicity to me is something that every individual should celebrate; appreciate and innovate. It is diverse and multitudinous. Ethnicity keeps us connected with our origin and gives us a sense of belonging. To me, staying connected to my roots (Tripuri) is very important and I’ve always tried to display and share it through my fashion/style. Rnai/Rignai ( wrapper for loin) and Rsa (wrapper for covering the chest) is a handmade traditional dress of my tribe. It is worn by the ladies commonly at all events and at any time of the day. However, I as modern age girl I like to try out different outfits and Saree happens to be one of them. I think it looks absolutely sexy!!

Other than the fashion/style, food is something that gives me immense happiness. So, on this ethnic day I wish to highlight the Tripuri traditional dishes that were prepared by my friend at a friends and family gathering. The traditional food of my state (Tripura) is delicious and succulent burst of flavours. One must definitely try out the Chakhui/Chakhwi and steamed fish in turmeric leave. The smell of the dish is just heavenly!

A Fusion of the traditional and Modern wear

Hello people
I hope everyone is doing great have been little busy for few days but I'm back with new bang!

Fashion is fun when there are no boundaries, no defined rules and a complete freedom to express one's creativity. That way, it will be neutral for all, irrespective of race, religion, tradition, etc.

I've always been in love with traditional attires, however, rarely got to wear as I find it challenging to move around in them. Being a fashion designer and a blogger I love to experiment new things, especially when it comes to fashion. One such example is when I turned a traditional"mnai" (pronounced: 'nai' with the 'm' silent) into a dress. It basically is a rectangular piece of hand/machine woven traditional wraparound bottomwear, covering a woman's body part from waist all the way down to ankles. I borrowed this "mnai" from my sister's closet and was totally in love with the embroidered print. So, instead of wearing it traditionally as usual, this time I pushed myself to make a challenging design out of it. Hence, ended up in sewing my own "mnai fusion outfit", a dress!

A lot of people tend to wear traditional attires only the way it's meant to be worn. Whereas, I find it versatile, as it can easily be blended with modern style; with just a tad bit of twist 😉

I'm pretty sure about many other cooler ways to style traditional outfits, however, here I am, presenting my own version of it.

Also, I believe in the idea of recycling the old traditional outfits and giving them a new look. It's better than the clothes ending up being used as a table cloth or a mop 🤣

And I'm going to show you how! Just keep reading 🙂

Here, I paired my buttoned white silk-shirt with a traditional palazzo, accesorised it with a traditional necklace (called "rangbouh" in Tripuri language) and a red cute raticule. I added this necklace to make the outfit look even more attractive, and the red raticule to give a pinch of western touch to the outfit.

As a result, I got a new traditional look, which is so comfortable and easy to carry around without any worries of looking overexposed. This pant is so simple that it goes with almost everything.

Hope this article changes your perspective of wearing a traditional attire. Just try your own version of "fusion outfit" and feel free to bother me if you need any suggestions.

As always, thank you so much for reading. Happy styling!

Traditional with a modern touch

Hello Pretty Ladies…..  

In today’s post I’ll be sharing with you all 2 awesome ways to revamp a traditional attire into a whole new design.

  • For the first look I have styled a pink traditional cloth into a two piece dress. A cold shoulder top paired up with a pencil skirt. The tribal print on the Rnai or traditional attire gives this ensemble a boho look that you can wear any where on any occasion.


  • For my second outfit I redesigned my blue Rnai into a three-quarter sleeved top and paired it with my white Palazzo pants to give it a casual yet stylish look. What makes this top unique is again the tribal patterns on the sleeves, it reminds me of my roots, the place where I come from.                                                 You can always pair it with any stilettos, I prefer a golden one for this outfit.
  • All of you must be wondering what a Rnai is. It’s a wrap around skirt that covers the lower part of the female body. In Tripuri culture Rnai is worn by all the ladies,and Risa.                                Risa is a wrap around for the upper part of the body. The unique patterns in Tripuri Rnai (in Bru language) and Rignai (in Debbarma language) have different purposes. Different tribes or communities have different kinds if patterns in their attire. And their skills are reflected by the kind of patterns they weave into their wrap arounds.   

I believe in keeping my roots intact while embracing the modern or Western lifestyle. Balancing is the key to it.                                                        Guys do share your view about this new collection in the comments section and keep reading. This season is all about revamping traditional attire into a modern design. I will sharing a new update soon.
