Women also love to wear Lehenga Choli for formal occasions and dress occasions.

Extremely good-looking and fit to all female figures, these Lehenga dresses are hand decorated. In ancient times, these Lehenga designs turned out to be legendary and were made with real gold, silver and precious stones.Initially, the lehenga was just a bit of fabric tied around the waist with the ends of the cloth left loose. The fabric was tied around the waist with the help of a metal strap. However, as this dress gained its popularity, it went through special transitions to go well with the expediency of the women. The metal strap was swapped by stitching a piece of fabric to the waist of the lehenga called nepha.

  The lehenga hit its highest point of development under the Mughal kings. Indian queens introduce this dress against the affluent Muslim pehsvaz dress of the Mughal royal women. The relations between the two communities became strong when Mughal kings organized bazaars where both the sellers and the buyers were women. The dupatta was a mark of respect for the women. It was usually two meters in length and one and a half meters in width. It was usually worn to cover the head and to enhance the loveliness of the lehenga. The material used for the dupatta was usually thin so lace and ornaments were added to give more weight to the cloth. The material used to make the lehenga is actually unchanged to those used in the era of the great Mughal King, Akbar; silks and brocades. 
The fame of lehengas has lined proportionately with the passage of time. In fact, in India and Pakistan it is a favorite dress for weddings. Nowadays, brides like better to wear lehengas, which increase their beauty and charisma. Lehenga is mostly made in red which is a symbol of excitement and passion; orange which is a combination of yellow and red; colors so different in personality- creates magical effects on the mind. The excellent embroidery and zari handwork enhance the beauty of this royal dress.

Dabka is a meticulous kind of embroidery. It is done after the cloth has been placed on the adda and is finished. More men work on the adda if the lehenga is wanted urgently. A thick cotton thread is darned on the pattern to be embroidered. 
Salma and nakhshi are also the types of needle work which is cheaper than dabka and considered a little less beautiful than dabka. Nakshi shines more than dabka so wedding dress is incomplete without it. Nakshi is a major part of the lehenga. 
The lehenga is a work of art of all these kinds of embroideries in a variety of combinations. Hence, the lehenga is still famous in India and Pakistan as it was in the era of the Mughals.
