It’s such a pleasure to wear an outfit created with so much love care to details.
I’ve had the pleasure of owning a Kotwara outfit from the late 70’s. The first one was a gift from a dear friend. I wore the exquisite black and white checked Angarkhan to shreds followed by equally lovely creations over 40 years. Their quality has been consistently PERFECT ! Last month I placed an order in Delhi. The package arrived in New York wrapped to perfection and my clothes were lovely. Kotwara is currently the best couturier in India making superb clothes for five decades. Treat yourself to a Kotwara outfit and you will be spoiled forever .
Simple and gorgeous designs. always bring beautiful new collections
