Celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi

Feeling Festive

Celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi

Ganesh Chaturthi is an 11-day festival celebrated each year to mark the birth of Lord Ganesha: the elephant-headed god of good luck and fortune. You may already know the story of how the elephant god got his head, but here are some more interesting facts about the Hindu god and this special festival:

Every major ceremony in India begins with a prayer to Lord Ganesha. This was a blessing from his father Lord Shiva when he brought him back to life by placing an elephant head on his body.

Now that you know some new facts related to Ganesh Chaturthi, it’s time to prep your wardrobe with the perfect celebratory outfits. Here are our picks for this year’s festivities.

The colour OF

sunshine

Lord Ganesha is often dressed in a yellow coloured dhoti, so why not opt for the colour yourself? With a block printed kurta and striped pants, the set is a perfect combination of nature-inspired and geometric prints. Throw on a brightly-coloured dupatta, statement earrings and stacked bangles to finish the look.

A fresh
look

Another great option: a refreshing mint green kurta and palazzo set, made extra special with shimmering gold buti embroidery. Crafted with sheer net details on the sleeve and dupatta, all this outfit needs is a pair of danglers and high heels.

An
all-time

classic

There’s nothing quite like pristine white with a touch of gold for festive dressing. Here, the combination of the kurta and palazzo with a thick band of golden detailing at the border makes it a winning choice for Ganesh Chaturthi.

Minimal is the
way to go

For those who prefer a minimal, sophisticated look, choose our charcoal grey striped kurta and pants set. With keyhole detailing at the neckline and a streamlined cut that flatters the body, this look needs only a touch of minimal jewellery and your favourite heels or juttis.
