9 Rimagined Colours for Navratri This Year

The revered festival of nine days is here and we, like you, just can’t keep calm! The festivities are going to be in full swing and we’re sure you’re all geared up to celebrate Sharad Navratri like never before. Whether it is fasting for the Devi’s blessings, swinging to the garba beat or hosting a Durga puja, we all have our traditions in place when it comes to these nine days of joy and fervour.

Women, in particular, take special efforts to look their best on these days and get all decked up in a variety of colourful outfits. There is one auspicious colour dedicated for each of the nine days so the young and old dress up accordingly in that particular day’s colour. Each of these colours reflect the various desirable qualities of the nine different forms of Goddess Durga.

This is not just a passing trend. As a matter of perspective, these colours also bring out 9 different sides of one’s personality.

Let’s have a look at how Rimagined’s premium collection of apparel and accessories showcase each of the nine Navratri colours.

Day 1 – White

The first manifestation of Goddess Durga – Shailaputri – is daughter of the mountains. Snow clad mountain tops are a place for attaining inner peace and serenity. Hence the colour white. Just like the one in our elegant Long Sleeves Cotton Top , upcycled from the best of left over cotton fabrics. It allows you take a Zen moment on a busy and stressful day.

One of the most auspicious days of this festival is Asthami or the eight day of Navratri. On this day the avatar of Devi Mahagauri is celebrated with a lot of fervour and fanfare. Goddess Mahagauri symbolises being unique, compassionate and celebrating individuality. And so the colour for the day is the one-of-a-kind peacock green. Our rich Green top will let you put your best foot forward and celebrate your individuality.

Day 9 – Pink

The final and the ninth day of Navratri is the day to revere and worship Goddess Siddhidatri. She is said to symbolise perfection. Kindness, affection and harmony is the theme of the day through the colour pink. Our Button-Down Dress with Pink Stripes is just what you need to express your gratitude and feel at harmony. Upcycled to perfection, the rich, pink colour is bound to bright up anyone’s day.

 

 

 

And after the Navratras, comes Vijayadashami / Dusshera. The ultimate day of this grand festival is all about the victory of good over evil – when Goddess Durga killed the demon Mahishasura. In a parallel of sorts, in the present day, we are plagued with modern evils of our time – mass wastage and overflowing landfills.
