In today's world where people are getting fashion conscious day after day, there is a question of various traditional dresses being unconsidered and neglected. This is one issue one should ponder upon if one loves one's tradition to be upheld or preserved. One should ask oneself, “where has Ghagra Cholis, kurtis, salwar Kameez, etc. gone?” “Have we become so engulfed into foreign cultures that we forget our own?” “What will become of our own if we keep on following foreign trends?” These questions will help one realize the position of one's cultural apparels in his or her context.

On the positive note, there are designers who understand this issue and try their utmost level to bring up the stage of Indian traditional dresses and make it acceptable to the current fashion trend.

Thanks to these designers who brought up new ideas that redefined the term fashion by bringing in various considered outdated dresses in the spotlight proving that Ghagra Cholis and similar dresses are still in fashion.
