The word Anarkali means ‘pomegranate blossom’. As the cut and flare of the suit closely resemble the shape of a pomegranate fruit, hence the name. As Anarkali suits date back to the Mughal period, many courtesans and dancers were seen donning this ethnic outfit during performances.
The Anarkali suit gained immense popularity after the Bollywood movie, ‘Mughal-e-Azam,’ where actress Madhubala was seen wearing it. Other movies such as ‘Umaro Jaan’ and ‘Devdas’ where actress Rekha and Madhuri Dixit sported beautiful Anarkali suits.
After the Anarkali made its comeback in 2012, since then it has been giving a tough competition to sarees and lehengas. Even today, many Bollywood actresses make public appearances in Anarkali suits.
Many fashion designers such as Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Tarun Tahiliani, Anand Kabra, etc. are known to design exquisite ethnic wear especially anarkalis.
Anarkali suits are available in many styles such as short Anarkalis, panelled Anarkalis, flared Anarkalis, etc. They also come in various colours and material and the best thing about Anarkali suits is that they flatter any body type.
