Angrakha styles with fuller skirts gathered at the waist were popular during the Mughal period of India. They remained in fashion, as a preferred form of clothing by both noblemen and royalty alike- irrespective of their religion.

The dainty appeal of breezy Angrakhas is undeniable. Above is our white Angrakha suit set from our Monochrome collection. Crafted in roomy cuts with delicate gathers, modest neckline and comfortable sleeves. Featuring delicate motifs and contrasting accents. Great for daily wear.
