Zara is one of the most popular fashion brands in the world. In the last few years, it has acquired a huge market in the fashion world, specially in India. These days, youngsters in urban areas and metro cities of India, are crazy about Zara, and, in fact, every year, when the company announces its sale period, Zara showrooms are the most crowded places in shopping malls.
But, recently, Zara got badly trolled on Twitter for selling ‘Indian Lungi’ for INR 6,000. Lungi is the most comfortable piece of clothing for your bottom in summers. It is a preferred outfit, most for men, but is also sported by women, these days. Its super comfortable style and affordable cost make it a favourite in most of the parts in India.
But, when Twitterati saw Zara selling Lungi INR 6,000 they couldn’t keep their calm and trolled the fashion brand left, right and centre. Zara described lungi as “Flowing skirt with draped detail in the front. Front slit detail at the hem. Zip fastening in the back hidden along the seam.”
Here’s how Twitterati reacted:
wow and all these years i thought my dad wasn't fashionablehttps://t.co/H81D4hTLYF

Those are def lungis. And it looks ridiculous ???? Some "designer" just copied the design & nobody at Zara seems to have known better.
