Way back in 1980 a young woman sold garments to women in Punjab from a little home after having acquired a meager bank loan of Rs. 8000. Little did she know that the brand she was rigorously at work on would someday resonate with the words ‘fashion’ and ‘affordability’, becoming a staple of every Indian woman’s wardrobe. A similar sense of history, personality and boldness reflects in Biba’s designs. Adding character to their collection has always been the brands forte.
With its fresh new collection, Biba goes on to achieve just that, weaving a piece of history with a dash of modernism as it narrates the ‘Anarkali’ story. With a garment so rich in history, giving it a fresh face best suited for the fierce young woman of today was a feat that only India’s favorite ethnic wear brand Biba could achieve. The Anarkali collection of Biba in all its vibrant colors comes well placed for the upcoming festive and wedding season. Having said that, the collection comes well balanced with designs you can wear to work or strut at a party.
Of the fabulous pieces available on Biba’s new website, FMW made a quick pick of our favorites.
- For a regular day at work:
This lovely green number will ensure you are left with no Monday Blues. Made in pure cotton, this one is perfect for the Mumbai weather – come rain or shine!
- For a casual evening:
A red flared cotton kurta, to show up as quite the stunner among your friend circle.
- For the big wedding reception:
Shows just about enough while still being its very modest self.
Looking for something with a majestic appeal? Maybe a little more grandeur? Biba’s got that covered too. In its recent collaboration with ace designer Rohit Bal, Biba has attempted to present to its users an exquisite range of Anarkalis crafted by the designer himself. From silver and gold cutwork to block print patterns, these drapes are sure to make you feel every bit the Moghul princess.
