Have you noticed how Indian weddings are slowly getting to use a fashion related word – resort reminiscent makeover? So, sun downer mehendis by the pool, Great Gatsby themed Bollywood Sangeets, wedding ceremonies on a beach where gota and net will suffocate you, leaving guests attending just a bit confused about wardrobes.

What we need, is slightly fusion clothing, rooted in an Indian aesthetic, so we look like we got the memo. You might want to put Mogra Designs on the top of your next fusion guest list, because they’re bringing it.

Mogra by Sheena is a brand rooted in Indian travel, crafts and handloom. Almost revivalist in their design tendencies, they craft global fusion wear from handwoven, hand-printed, hand-embroidered and organic Indian textiles. Although their design sensibility gives some great fashion journalistic leeway to use big, complicated words, the opposite is true of their clothing. Their line is clean, simple, uber wearable and above all, highly unique. We’re talking hand block midi dresses {sundowner Mehendis}, handwoven and hand embroidered woolen jackets, engineered from Kutch shawls, button down flared jackets made from 100% vegan cotton and handprinted in Bagru Village, Rajasthan, winter friendly dresses make from Chanderi, complete with orange silk handmade buttons. Trending on our radar though, is the Liberate the Saree collection, featuring stunning separates, skirts, dresses, jackets, box tops and shirts, all made from traditional Indian sarees, supporting local crafts, handlooms and artisan weavers. Esepcially the ethnic inspired Ink Blue Crop Top & Midi Skirt, in line cut dress crafted from a Poona saree, and the sheer black and ochre flared top crafted from a traditional Maharastrian saree.

An Indian answer to easy, breezy and equal parts gorgeous resort wear? It’s got our vote.
