Anika in Chania Choli Naming ceremony
Chania Choli, which is also known as Ghagra choli, is the traditional clothing of women in Rajasthan and Gujarat.
Ghagra is a form of skirt which is long, embroidered and pleated. It is worn as the bottom portion of a Gagra choli and secured at the waist and leaves the lower back and midriff bare. It is a typical feminine silhouette that epitomizes style, craftsmanship, quality and class of Indian clothing.
Choli (Hindi: चोली, ravike in South India Telugu: రవికె, Kannada: ರವಿಕೆ) is a midriff-baring blouse shell garment in the Indian sari costume worn in India and other countries where the sari is worn. The choli is cut to fit tightly to the body and has short sleeves or sleeveless and a low neck. The choli is usually cropped, allowing exposure of the midriff and the navel; the cropped design is particularly well-suited for wear in the sultry South Asian summers
