India is a culturally diverse country. Not only does the land of Indian exhibit the richness of a variety of castes but a plethora of regional wear as well. Not only do these dresses set India apart from the rest of the world but also bring in an assorted flavor to our cultural status. India is divided into a variety of states and each state sports its own regional attire. At the 26th January Parade each year, every state displays its unique culture, practices and attire as a part of the Parade. The Parade is a colorful affair and receives attention from across the world. What do you say - Is India's cultural diversity worth a mention?

Obviously it is! Whether it`s Bengali style of wearing a sari or Mekhla-chadar of Assam...we like every bit of our cultural variety. Colorful turbans, tribal headgears, lungi from South, Kaftan from Kashmir...when it can inspire the imaginations of international designers, why won`t it be inspiring for proud Indians :)
