Archana, the head of business development of Soch, says that the brand promotes the latest styles and has a wide variety of clothes.

“We use an eclectic combination of bright, muted as well as elegant colours to make the clothes. This season, we have some very trendy clothes like palazzo pants in bright hues and coloured jeggings in denim, which have become very popular. These are available in fabrics like corduroys and denim. There are ethnic trends as well as fitted silhouettes with brocade and broad borders, which have been woven in bright colours,” she explains. Though ethnic, the brand has a wide variety of choices for those who are seeking contemporary designs, structured drapes and beautiful fittings.

Different types of embroidery with thread, kundan and elegant borders add glamour and style to kurtas, saris as well as casual tunics.

This makes the clothes available here quite chic as well as ethnic.

saris, the range fits all budgets.

The kurtas are in different cuts such as fish-cut and A-line, in bright colours and patterns. These can be combined with contrasting leggings and dupattas.
