Indianwear | Gaurav Gupta Tribe at Jabong
The options to purchase Indianwear online are increasing by the day and it really does make me jump for joy when well established designers collaborate with big online fashion destinations like Jabong. One of the most recent collaborations that had me excited is Gaurav Gupta for Jabong. Its quite pleasant to see such talented & notable designers join hands with online retailers and make their work accessible to a much larger audience.
The collection features signature Gaurav Gupta embellishment details that features his runway silhouettes which have been given a traditional twist – draped saris, anarkalis and lehengas. All the pieces of the collection exude a certain sensuality and are very versatile at the same time. There are detailed and heavily embellished pieces as well as breezy more casual ones depending on the occasion you are interested in. This collection is exclusively available at Jabong and is priced between ₹ 10,000 – ₹ 20,000/-
I chose to go with this black anarkali kurta set for a day-time engagement function of a cousin recently. Evening and nights don’t really allow for sleeveless garments in the Delhi winters so a day function seemed appropriate. The interesting part about this kurta is the draped dupatta it has attached to it’s back. No need to keep adjusting your dupatta, checking if it is sweeping the floor or slipping off your shoulder. It stays where it is meant to. I loved this bit! The hemline of the kurta is also a slight high-low. High in the front and sweeping low at the back which makes for another interesting element.
I decided to pair this anarkali with an exquisite pashmina/ cashmere shawl with some dreamlike hand embroidery to enrich the outfit and give it a hint of resplendence. The cashmere shawls are all handcrafted with materials sourced from the arid plains of changthang in the Ladakh region and handmade in Kashmir. The embroidery of this particular shawl took more than 2 years to complete. These marvelous shawls are by Rana + Ishu who personally source the raw material and overlook the creation of each shawl.

I loved your Styling Akanksha.. Though I would like to team my Gaurav Gupta Ensemble with a beautiful Blood Red Leheriya with a matte border to match with the intricate detailing of the outfit. I would have styled my hair in a tight updo so that even the backside gets it due credits. Trishul Earrings by Eina Ahluwalia, a stack of golden bangles and Red Lips. My feet wouldnt move without the Kolhapuris 🙂
HI Falguni, that is impeccable styling! I love every single detail you have described. And the kolhapuris would be a super idea!
Thank you 🙂 Its a Delight to receive your email in the inbox with a new post so regularly.. Wish I can get regular in writing too 🙂 Happy day…
Thank you so much for the lovely comment Falguni! I try my best to be regular with my posts but I have my lazy phases too 🙂
It is lovely to see you in traditional Indianwear. The anarkali looks so nice on you and you really can carry both western and Indian outfits!
you look smashing in this anarkali suit
anarkalis always look so elegant. I think they suit all body shapes.
Hi Akanksha! You are looking really beautiful in this traditional outfit. We hardly see you in Indian wear and this post is truly fresh. I absolutely loved the shawl story, it looks pretty. I would probably pair this dress with a jacket or a waistcoat, if I am attending a big wedding. Else for a small evening function, this look is perfect. 🙂
Hi Rohita, thank you so much for sharing your style tips. A waistcoat sounds like a really good idea! Will definitely want to try that out soon 🙂
