Quintessentially, Indian, the kurti has made a great comeback. The famous “Bunty Aur Bubbly” kurtis, popularized by Rani Mukherjee and designed by ace fashion deignner Aki Narula are still in use. It has been sailing strong for the past three seasons and can be worn anytime...anywhere! The length of the bollywood kurtis varies between mid-thigh level and a little above the knee. The style could be `tight-fit' or `semi-fit'. Opt for slits that are not too long (between 10 inches to 12 inches). One could fashionably team them up with cap sleeves, short sleeves or three-quarter sleeves.
Flower power in kurtis are also popular among actresses. Go for bright floral concepts thrown over simple kurtis. Also, juxtapose geometry with the same in the form of panels, two-piece sleeves, princess lines; and pin tucks. Simple georgette bases with minimal sequin work look good. Surface design as sequin work following the contours of floral motifs on fabric bases is ruling strong. Techniques such as block printing, cross-stitch, kantha work, beadwork and mirror work offer a superlative status to the kurti. Bollywood inspired kurtis sail from college classrooms to convocation ceremonies, from the workplace to business luncheons, and from movie halls to evening cocktails. All you need to ensure is the right fabric, the perfect colour, the right silhouette, the surface design ...at the right time. In India, movies set the latest fashion. Top designers have made hottest designs on kurtis for top actresses. Bollywood kurtis have become a fad for their fans.
