Decoding Modern Kashmiri Fashion Trends

We’ve all grown up watching our favorite artists play Kashmiri damsels dressed in pretty Kashmiri attire clad with alluring thread embroidery, bright colors, and elegant silhouettes. Be it Sharmila Tagore Pataudi in Kashmir Ki Kali or Preity Zinta in Mission Kashmir swaying to Bumro Bumro. Every girl has imagined what it would be like to grace Kashmiri outfits and fulfill her childhood Bollywood fantasy. With changing times, trends have changed too, and today Kashmiri craftsmanship reigns on runways across the country and globally. But if one thing remains unchanged, it is the grace and charisma a Kashmiri outfit holds. With their intricate craftsmanship and eternal elegance, these outfits will continue to be every girl’s dream.

ETERNAL CLASSICS

From Pherans to fusion outfits, fashion trends in the beautiful valley have evolved through the years. Global fashion brands and sustainable homegrown brands are continually deploying elements of the valley into their work, promoting the skills of the artisans of Kashmir and the essence of slow fashion - legacies that can be passed down for generations to come.
Investing in an outfit that holds a part of the Kashmiri legacy means investing in an heirloom, a classic that can be worn all year long - through seasons, through years, and through decades. Modern Kashmiri trends are on par with the concept of sustainable fashion and follow the code of the predecessors - eternal classics that stand through time.

ELEGANT SILHOUETTES

While conventional Kashmiri embroidered outfits were made from thick wool or heavy silk to combat the harsh weather of the valleys, modern-day Kashmiri ensembles are made from elegant silhouettes - lighter and flowier, to cater to lovers of the craft worldwide. From everyday casuals to festive wear, one can choose outfits crafted from organza, georgette, chiffon, art silk, and other beautiful fabrics.

EVERGREEN KASHMIRI EMBROIDERY

Over the years, Kashmiri embroidery has retained its throne as a royal work of art. A glance at Kashmiri outfits and one can comprehend the hours and skill spent on executing this fine piece of art. The various forms of Kashmiri embroidery - aari, tilla, dabka, and cutdana elevate the beauty of the outfit. Apart from the traditional embroidery, additions like embellishments, sequins, and colors add a refreshing touch to Kashmiri outfits.
