Lightweight fabrics will rule this festive season so as not to weigh down your enthusiasm. Fabrics like organza, munga georgette, Banarasi georgette, tissue and silk will do the needful, maintaining the lightweight still keeping intact the grace. While we will be spending more time at home, versatility will be the key. Appliques and merging of different textiles will be seen to make things more interesting.

Prints & Embroideries
