Anarkali fashion holds value from ages

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Anarkali fashion holds a value for ages and this dress is one of the most loved and amazing for every girl and fits for any occasion.
If we check the history of Anarkali, it started or say originated from Mughal era. Named after a great courtesan of Akbar’s emperor Anarkali. It is made up of long, floor-length frock style top, with Chudidar and dupatta.
I learned Kathak dance and remember that when we used to have a dance performance on stage we always used to dress up in this outfit, and now it’s more than dance costume and turned into fashion.
