Rekha was dressed to make headlines at Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding reception. While fashionistas were going gaga about the twist Rekha had given to the traditional sari, they completely missed the point. What the veteran actor was wearing was a chaugoshia or a ‘pant-sari’, a traditional ensemble that women wore during the Mughal period.The director of Eka Cultural Resources and Research, Deepthi Sasidharan pointed it out on social media:For all the fashion journalists going crazy at Rekha’s ‘’pant-sari’ - Its called a ‘chaugoshiya’ and this sartorial style is easily over a 150 years old. It comprises of ‘Chau’ or four garments - a ‘choli’ (tight blouse), a ‘kurti’ (loose tunic) a tight ‘pajama’ (pants) and a five meter ‘khada dupatta’ thats draped in a special way (I can inbox details to those interested) The ‘chaugoshia’ is the traditional garment for women in Nizam’s Hyderabad, incredibly stylish and still worn by women on their nikaah or wedding ceremonies. We need fashion history schools!!Deepthi Sasidharan, Director of Eka Cultural Resources and ResearchHave a look at the gorgeous Rekha in her golden chaugoshia.(The Quint is now on WhatsApp. To receive handpicked stories on topics you care about, subscribe to our WhatsApp services.
