In India the modern fashions have customized after the 19th century, the methods of wearing a Sarees have gone through many changes in fashions world. In 20th century women were dressed in different styles and manner, the printed Sarees becomes a new trend for Indian ladies. To wear such types of Sarees by Indian ladies now a day’s become new approach, new style and new experience for them. I consider that Sarees might be the perfect ideal to choose for different occasions like festivals, Marriage events, ceremony and that’s why women are passionate on Sarees.
Over the periods the women uses Sarees and Salwar since the women’s clothing is the ethnic and decent wear, till now women never give up their tradition even though pants, skirts and western styles becomes as a part of their dressing after their independence.

Even today we can find several traditional Saree designers in South India. We might call them as great Artisans also because they do traditional hand work on Saree. An enormous amount of work, technical skill and pure material will be utilized on these sarees. That’s why Indian Bridal wear are more expensive when it is made of different types of hand work.
The fashion industry in India seems very good looking and they got good reputation all over the top countries. Earlier it was mysterious, today Indian Fashion designer are well glowing in the list of international fashion industry.
