Indian Clothing 

Traditional or Modern?

Gabriela V.

Nathan F.


     There are many differences and similarities between modern and traditional Indian clothing because styles have changed significantly throughout the years. Traditional clothing is very intricately decorated, and modern clothing, while still detailed, is much more simplified. Although the clothing that is more decorate is used for ceremonies, the every-day clothing is still very unique compared to what we usually wear. Not only are woman clothing traditional or modern, so are men. Some special clothing men may wear are on weddings and called a Sherwani. There are many special artist for Indian clothing through out the world, but many different regions have different type of styles. A Saree is an example of traditional Indian clothing that is worn by women.
