New Delhi, June 15 (IANS) Parliamentarians Jyotiraditya Scindia and Poonam Mahajan have been voted as the best dressed next-gen politicians in ethnic wear.
As a prelude to World Ethnic Day on Sunday, Craftsvilla.com reached out to its massive audience to poll the best dressed next-gen politicians in ethnic wear.
Among men, it was Congress all the way, as the suave ‘Nehru Jacket’ style of Jyotiraditya Scindia making 29.7 per cent people vote for him. Sachin Pilot (26.3 per cent) and Rahul Gandhi (25.4 percent) got the second and third highest votes.
Poonam Mahajan, often spotted in comfortable cotton kurtas, got the highest votes (31.3 per cent) amongst next-gen female politicians. Dimple Yadav who got 26.8 per cent votes and Divya Spananda with 17.2 per cent votes came second and third.
“This was a very exciting survey as India has a bunch of young politicians who are interested in ethnic wear,” Monica Gupta, Co-founder, Craftsvilla.com, said in a statement.
“We celebrate World Ethnic Day because we all need to embrace ethnic, gift ethnic, donate ethnic and root for ethnic, and save India’s dying art forms like Bhagalpur’s Manjusha art, Bengal Pat, Pichwai paintings of Udaipur, Toda art of the Nilgiri hills.”
“Nehru jackets are very popular with the youth. This is a political legacy, and not so much a Bollywood legacy. We also see a demand for Bandhgala, kolhapuris, cotton saris and kurtis which are some popular choices sported by the young politicians. Stylish, yet rooted, these products seem to blend style with comfort effortlessly,” she added.
