My earliest memories of shopping with my mother comprise a huge matching centre full of neatly stacked endless rolls of different types and colours of fabrics. Her preferred salesman would stand on guard and proudly lay them out for us, as directed. Readymade garments were a rarity back then so fabrics for everything from salwar suits, kurtas to blouses and even dupattas were bought from stores. Times have changed now though and few have the time and patience to visit them. However, come wedding season and every lady painstakingly strives to put together perfectly tailored ensembles for the big day. Thanks to Fabcurate, we can now browse, compare and choose from a huge variety of fabrics for our every need right from the comfort of our homes.

My experience of shopping with Fabcurate!
My fashion choices have evolved a lot over the past few years. I’m slowly leaning more towards traditional fabrics and designs that are graceful, elegant and classy. A couple of friends getting hitched meant choosing something fun yet subtle for the wedding season this year. Fabcurate came to my rescue and I not only got my favourites to choose from, but also discovered some new ones.
Even for a baraati, weddings are an excuse to flaunt a lehenga in style. Net, tissue, heavy embroidery, velvet, organza and more, I have some lovingly selected lehengas in unique styles. Alas, some are no longer in fashion while others’ weight goes into a few kilos. This wedding season I wanted to dress in something simple, comfortable and light-weight which reflected my personality too.
Gamthi pattern originates from the villages of Gujarat and Rajasthan. Gamthi embroidery, an extension of this print, is quite heavy and flashy. These materials often come in bright colours and are amazingly detailed. They’re vastly popular during Navratri and garba celebrations as well. No wonder then that a Gamthi lehenga was on my wishlist. With Fabcurate, I could lay my hands on a digitally printed version of these beautiful patterns. Isn’t the orange and blue combination rich and pleasing to the eye? It is available in Japan satin which makes it easy to handle and carry. Some lacework at the hem and waist of my free-flowing lehenga, a potli on the side and voila, it is done!
An intricate and traditional lehenga pattern meant choosing a delicate choli design that complimented it impeccably. Interestingly, after owning Bandhani sarees, dupattas, bags and jewellery boxes, a Bandhani design caught my eye, yet again! Dark purple and corn yellow pattern in South Indian Uppada silk, it balanced my entire ensemble superbly. My instant thought was to style it in a thick-collar, waist-length choli with elbow sleeves. Maybe similar lacework to seal the connection? It will be wedding season ready with a heavy necklace, maangteeka, jhumkas and a handful of bangles. Sounds cool, doesn’t it?
I’m wedding season ready with Fabcurate and can’t wait to don my outfits in these gorgeous prints. Oh, I also got some lovely monochromatic fabrics for making twinning tops for me and my daughter. Take your time to explore the website or the FOMO feeling is sure to hit you for real!
