Phulkari Dupatta Just For Salwar Suits? Phulkari Draped Jacket Anyone?

Phulkari dupatta again? Is that what you are thinking? I know I am guilty as charged...but I just cannot get over my obsession with these pretty vibrant things, all thanks to designer Manish Malhotra and his latest collection.

So coming back to the phulkari dupatta..Is it just for salwar suits? Is it just for Indian wear?
No no not anymore...

I really enjoyed playing with my duaptta and turning it into this draped jacket that can be worn with pants...

Yay!! the phulkari dupatta is not just for salwar suits anymore.
However if you would like to see it in its traditional form, worn with a salwar suit..chk HERE

  7. so innovative.. and love the dupatta.. I had recently gone to amritsar and happened to almost purchase simething very similar but it looked too overwhelming on me so dropped the idea..

  8. Wow, that looks absolutely amazing on you! A totally unique look and I just love how you styled it!

  9. But the flowiness of the dupatta is lost. it looks bulky ..maybe a bell sleeve tailored front open plain shirt will give jacket like feel ?

    1. hi there...I agree with u..
      but this has been done keeping the dupatta has not been cut or stitched at can be used as a dupatta again.
      if you do decide to tailor it and add sleeves etc...then a LOT LOT can be done with it.
      The whole idea was to keep the dupatta as is just give it a different look dy draping and belting it :)
      Thanks for dropping
