This anarkali is an intricately planned collage of Kalamkari, Mashru and Ajrakh. Layers of fabric artistically come together to form different parts of the garment. An equally interesting, long, blue overcoat in dotted Dabu prints, complements the garment well.

Ethnic charm oozes from this #anarkali-kurta silhouette. Monotone block-prints cover a major portion of the garment. Adding some flair is a burst of colour in #Kalamkari, #Ikat prints and vibrant, geometric block-prints. Intensive threadwork elegantly lines the yoke.

Each element in this ensemble, be it the kurta, the printed pants, the overcoat or the stole, houses distinct designs and prints. Kalamkari, Bagru, Ikat and block prints are dominant features. Shades of rust and mustard, with speckles of green, blue and violet, balances this dynamic blend of prints and weaves. #kalamkari #Ikat #ethnicovercoat #printedpants

#Palazzo pants in panels of rich #Kalamkari is lined with strips of earthy block prints and Zari. A simple Kalamkari, sleeveless #kurta in a lovely shade of maroon, maintains the earthiness, yet keeps it young! A stole that combines the beautiful tones found in both garments, brings this ensemble together.

Kalamkari and Ajrakh prints come together in earthy shades of green, mustard, brown and a touch of red, in this overcoat. A pair of brown, block-printed, ankle length pants, keep up the tone of this ensemble. A stole with intensive thread work, in slightly brighter shades adds just the right amount of drama.#indianbychoice
