If you’re looking to bridge the gap between traditional and modern, then Prayas Fashion’s collection is where you could start. While the cuts and styles are simple, and classic, you’ll be happy to see their colours, patterns and embellishments that make the outfits stand out.
White kurtas with elegant silver thread embroidery, rani pink ones, with high slits and noodle straps to pair with denims, tights or churidars, or dhoti sets, are all part of the collection. Prices start at INR 1,100, so you can perhaps even pick up a dress from this brand, if kurtas are not your thing. They have a few which could work as well for a Diwali party, business meeting or for a catch up with friends.
Prayas also does simple kurta and pant sets that make for good daily wear. Be it printed gota or handblock prints, the pastel colours they come in make them versatile enough to be worn any time of the day and year.
