Design
Lacha/Lachchas have different type of work done on them like embroidery or mirror work. Wearing a heavy and trendy lachcha for a big function is catching on now. Most brides 
wear ghagra for their wedding engagement, mehndi function and the reception. The work that is done on the ghagras or lachchas is elaborate and very intricate, at times. Zardosi, in-laid with stones, antique and goldwork or sequins on them form part of the embroidery. When it is a part of a bridal collection there is a lavish use of gold and antique threads.

Convenient to wear, easy to manage even if it is very heavy, colour, craft and custom made are some of the plus points that go in favour of this beautiful and gorgeous attire-- it is a must in a bride's 
wardrobe.

The lehenga history was not properly trace out, but according to the research done, it was believed that lehenga history originates during the Mughal era. During that time, the lehenga was the popular garments worn by Indian women for almost types of occasions. Actually, from the Middle Ages up to the recent times, fashion was already been a part of the historical era. In connection with this, the fashion trends of India have made it way from the medieval times until now without losing the essence of their ethnicity and customs traditions. The fact that India was the home of magnificent styles and crafted designs of dresses, it was really hard for them to select the best of bests because of the wide variety of designs available. But among the best traditional dresses that Indian women would prefers to choose after the famous saree wears are the lehenga choli. They have loved and embraced the beauty of lehenga choli because of its unique elegance. Most likely, the bride would choose lehenga choli as their best gown for their wedding.




























The journey of lehenga history had made its way up to these recent generations. The previous patterns and designs of lehenga before were still being used until today. In fact, some of the trusted and leading manufacturer of lehenga did not missed to absorb and lift the traditional customary patterns of this dress from the Mughal ages. The elegant and famous lehenga still composed of the choli or the short fitted blouse, the Ghagra or the long flowing skirt and the scarf or the dupatta. Based on the lehenga history, the fabric that was used in making a lehenga dress during the Mughal era was still the same today. These fabrics were the silks and brocades. Although today, the scarf or dupatta is made from the finest fabric like linen of chiffon and silk but still it follows on the old age styles of dupatta
