The Magic of Gota

Now that the wedding season is almost over, don’t we all just miss how good we all looked on all the weddings we attended. The goal is never to outshine the bride, tauba tauba, but going as much OTT as possible is fun too!

And with the age old tradition of Gota Patti, it’s very easy to whip up a nice, fancy outfit to last a couple of weddings at least.

Gota, having started centuries ago in Rajhastan, has come a long way from the time consuming process of using gold or silver threads to create the beautiful imagery of that era. Gota essentially involves ribbons of fabric being tied together to form the unique patterns and motifs. Stitching Gota on any kind of fabric can completely turn around the outfit.

We at GENERATION did just that! We realize that it’s no more the era where Gota was associated with regality, so everyone is welcome to don the glow any time they want.

We wanted to show you all the versatility of Gota and how the Modern Pakistani Woman can use it without the outfit looking like it belongs at a mehndi.

This cool number is sure to tone down the hottest of summer weddings! Complete with gota and dori details, the Russian Brocade co-ords has got your back for summer weddings.

Let’s take things up a notch on the style quotient and present to you this really unorthodox way of adding Gota details to your outfit.

These Fields of Gold trousers! You can pair these with any kurta you deem fit, but we recommend these as running trousers.

Who says athleisure has to be simple. Or, you can add a plain white tee and a denim jacket and think of all the hype your OOTD Instagram post is gonna generate. You just cannot miss that!

And what better add a little maza to the outfit than some Gota!

You see, life is all about taking what you have been given and turning it into something all yours and there’s no harm in taking elements and crafts of the past and merging them to live in the present.
