India is known as the land of festivals. People of the country come together to celebrate the spirit of every religion with great fanfare. Fashion naturally becomes a part of the festivities. This is the season to stock your wardrobe up on saris, shararas, ghagra cholis and salwar suits.
And it is not just about clothes! Each year there are new launches for watches, footwear, jewelry and other accessories.
Diwali is a great boon for the apparel industry when people invest in designs and colorful outfits for the many pujas and parties. Here we look at a few such dazzling creations.
