Apply the Keep It Simple Silly mantra to your ethnic party or occasion wear with Indo-western outfits from Zuleiha. Zuleiha is a Kochi based brand that believes in the philosophy of less is more and swears by the magic of simplicity in all their clothing. The brand is all about solid colours, intricate embroidery, and flowy fabrics that flaunts the Indian body shape. From flowy kurta sets, dreamy anarkalis made out of georgette, crepe, and linen and elegant organza sarees, pick your favourite from their collection of clothing.
Started in 2012 in Kochi, they now have a store in Panampally Nagar, Cochin and they also sell through Instagram and Facebook. Their latest Ramadan collection is all about solid colours with zardosi and french knot embroidery paired sprinkled with digital prints on the kurtas or dupattas. The turquoise blue and sunshine yellow kurtas with pin-tuck and mirror work all over is my favourite pick as it is elegant and perfect for a haldi ceremony, brunch, or dinner party. Apart from solid colour kurta sets, find a few pieces with an ombre colour scheme in yellow, blue, pink, and red with a hint of tie and dye that enhances the outfit. The Ruhaniyat collection showcases organza sarees with zari embroidered, mirror work, or crystal-embellished borders and fully embroidered blouses in a single colour such as lime green, lavender, and ice blue. The outfits at Zuleiha are priced at INR 5,000 and upwards.
They also make bridal wear such as lehengas, gowns, and skirt sets upon request and are completely customisable. If you aren't from Kochi, you can order from them through Instagram and Facebook. They'll customise it to your measurements and deliver it to your doorstep.
