Gudi Padwa, helmed as the Maharashtrian New Year, ushers the spring season. Gudi Padwa is feted by families ringing in the festivities together, flaunting some new clothes, preparing special Maharashtrian dishes and celebrating the day together. A special Gudi flag, generally of yellow or red colour, is erected, garlanded with flowers, mango and neem leaves and topped with upturned silver or copper vessel signifying victory and achievement. It is believed that the Gudi wards off evil, invite prosperity and good luck into the house. Festive fashion is an inseparable part of all Indian celebrations. This festival often has women draping the elegant Nauvari-a traditional a nine-yard Marathi style saree tucked at the back and men wearing a kurta-pyjama along with a saffron turban during the auspicious Gudi Padwa celebration. Sparking off those Marathi Mulgi vibes with their cutesy girl-next-door looks and a fabulous fashion melange of Splendid sarees are Amruta Khanvilkar and Sai Tamhankar. Joining the revelries is Shraddha Kapoor who lent us some festive style inspirations!
