When we think of Phagwah we picture beautiful bright colours, celebration and yes FASHION. This festival was brought down from India in 1838 by Indian Indentured Immigrants and celebrates the triumph of good over evil and ushers in the spring season. Hindus traditionally wear white on Phagwah day and indulge in the throwing of abeer, powder, and water. The festival is celebrated by Hindus and non-Hindus in what is an amusing, good-natured and joyful celebration.
Holi has come a long way from the traditional white; people are becoming more fashion and style conscious. So if you choose white add some colour to the outfit. Stay away from heavy fabric since it gets clingy and takes longer to dry. Light fabric is perfect for Holi as it keeps you from feeling stuffy in the heat. Wear colourful flats, avoid heels and leather as you want to be as comfortable as possible.
Happy Phagwah to all Guyana, I Hope these pieces inspire you to celebrate.
