Hey Ertsy Fashionistas! Fashion today is literally blowing our brains out with so many of them making comebacks even on the international forums. I mean, remember how Saree is trending so highly amongst the global stars? In many decades that our country has developed, the most exciting part has actually been the changing fashion. And the Women Ethnic Fashion today is so much more today than just about the femininity and tradition. It represents individuality, aspirations, confidence, power, comfort and everything that a woman is made up of. They are a part of the statement fashion wagon and oh, so well.
Just yesterday I was going through this awesome collection from Kraftly and their absolutely refreshing Women’s Ethnic Wear collection has just inspired me well enough to acknowledge these 5 Indian Designers who have given Ethnic a whole new dimension in the global fashion scene.
And it is just a constraint to put them in a list because they can never be clasified as one over the other because of their sheer fashion class and genius.
1) Sabyasachi Mukherjee
Hailing on the Philosophy of ‘Personalised imperfection of the human hand’, his designs are impeccable and so is his over-all aesthetic sense that is depicted in his dresses as well as his fashion shows, shoots and even the stores. The youngest member of the National Museum of Indian Cinema, his designs have featured in movies like Guzaarish, Babul, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Raavan, English Vinglish and so on. Well, for us, he’ll always be the man who redefined Vidya Balan’s style and made her the Godess she is today!

2) Anita Dongre
The master of the mix & match, she not only blends her fabrics but also her designs in the perfect blend of tradition and modernity. Splashes of colours, beautiful prints, blocks and comfortable, light fabric, her label AND is for the modern Indian woman. Philanthropist at heart, she is phenomenal to have a new line of eco-friendly products as a homage to Handicrafts of India. A self-made designer, she has been able to handle everything all so well, except that one time her website crashed right after she dressed the Duchess of Cambridge impeccably!(No one is complaining.)

3) Anju Modi
Now, you have obviously drooled over Deepika in Bajirao Mastani, her spectacular look in Ram Leela and her grandeur with the ethnic wear. This woman is behind all those designs and more. She has a way with ethnic wear that is so unusual; whether it is the minimalist designs or the extravagant wedding wear. The best part about her collections year after year has been the elaborate concept behind it. Personally, we will always have the highest respect for her Draupadi Collection with actress Tabu as her muse.

4) Neeta Lulla
Shaking the fashion scene since 1985, her biggest tremor came with her association with Devdas in 2002. Yes! The stunning movie outfits worn by Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai have been designed by this woman. Awarded and celebrated as a designer, she has styled a range of Indian Movie fashionistas in Bollywood and the South Indian cinema, too.

5) Manish Malhotra
Last, but, definitely never the least is Manish Malhotra! A household name for about a decade now, he’s the Bollywood go to guy. His designs range over various styles western and Indian, but some of his best works have been in the bridal and the breezy and comfortable every-day ethnic fashion. Knows as hands down the most successful designer of India, I can’t even think of a leading lady he has not styled. And awards? Fimfare, IIFA, Cine Awards, you name it and he has it. Ertsy will always and always love Manish for styling Sushmita in Main Hoon Na and giving us some major goals and hibber-jibbers. (Chand mera dil plays in distance)
