Sparkly India

This is a photoshoot made for kak Arini's final assignment.  Kak Arini is such an expertise of Indian cultures I have ever known. I also got to know some facts about India through her. We wore some Indian clothings which is called Salwar Kameez, if I am not mistaken. The salwar kameez is the traditional wear of women in Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir and has become the most popular dress for females. It consists of loose trousers (the salwar) narrow at the ankles, topped by a tunic top (the kameez). It is often misnamed as "Punjabi suit" or simply "shalwar" in the north and "churidaar" in Southern India. Women generally wear a dupatta or odani (Veil) with salwar kameez to cover their head and shoulders. It was introduced by the Muslims and originates from the Islamic era or old Iranian culture. It is very common in Pakistan and Afghanistan. It is always worn with a scarf called a dupatta, which is used to cover the head and drawn over the bosom. The material for the dupatta usually depends upon that of the suit, and is generally of cotton, georgette, silk, chiffon among others.  The salwar kameez is most common in the northwestern part of India.  (source)

India is really rich in culture. The variousness in their dressings really expresses a such captivating culture. There are types of Indian's clothings which you can see here. I also happen to find this interesting blog which featured the Indian Summer! That post highlights the colours, layers, draperies, and accessories which excite me. 
Trying to mimic the Indian dancers' poses but I rather fail. Look how cheesy I look!
