What makes Saree the most sensual drape?

What is so special about the Indian traditional attire that it makes a woman look so desirable and elegant? Saree is worn by women at everyday events, functions and weddings and we even see Bollywood actresses wearing the 9 yards long drape to look their best at various award functions. Infact, we saw Nandita Das,  Kajol and more recently Deepika Padukone wearing a Saree at international film festivals too with an extra feel of representing India..

The crux of the debate is the versatility of the garment. The Saree preserves the Indian heritage of dressing modestly and yetthere are various ways in which Saree can be worn to give you different looks! We see politicians, officials, and social workers wear Sarees to look traditional and subtle while the same costume draped differently can make her look voluptuous and sensational!

Sarees can be found in various fabrics and styles. While a cotton Saree is for a subtle look, chiffon and georgette Sarees can accentuate your shape with their clinging drape.. Silk sarees are preferred for occasions and mainly used in South India while Banarasi sarees are known for their royalty and elegance.

The Marathi bride wears a traditional green Saree with red border which is a part of the customs in the region. So we see Saree is an integral part of the Indian culture and undoubtedly the best way to dress for any occasion… so next time you are confused about what to wear for a wedding… you have the answer ready!

Sabyasachi captures the essence of Traditional clothing!

While some may think fashion is all about skin show and skimpy outfits… there are some who beg to differ! We are talking about Sabyasachi Mukherjee, the infamous Indian designer who made a mark in the world of fashion by retaining the essence of traditional clothing and proving himself on the standards of contemporary fashion.

Sabyaachi has set up his first flagship store in the NCR at Mehrauli.  The designer has feathers of success like Paa, Aishwarya Rais’s look on Opera Winfrey’s show, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzarish and many more to count! Sabyasachi’s bridal collection, better known as Bridal Sutra is the most awaited show each year at the Lakme Fashion Week!

Sabyasachi has been designing for Bollywood for quite many years and most recently he has been working on Aishwarya Rais’s look for her forthcoming movie Raavana. His fan list has big names like Rani Mukherjee but one of the most remarkable achievements of Sabyasachi has been the reincarnation of Vidya Balan as a fashion diva! The actress who was officially labelled “Worst Dressed” not much time back has now become one amongst the most well dressed and stylish celebrities. The credit goes to the designer who made it possible for her!

Sabyasachi’s designs are ruled by Golden and deep colours that adds to the enigma of a woman and brings about the true Indian beauty dressed with royalty and vanity! Antique work, thick borders and contrasting shades are the designer’s style. The designer admits that red and bottle green are his favourite colours and no wonder we get to see most of these in bridal wear! Sabyasachi sticks to natural fabrics and loved designing in textures and embroidery.
