Designer Sari - Modern Twist to Tradition
In the recent past, the traditional sari had made way for the comfortable salwar-kameez combination and western clothes, especially among young Indian women. However, it has had a revival lately, with the advent of the designer sari. Usually made from lighter (and manageable) fabrics such as crepe, chiffon and georgette, the designer sari is a bolder statement with strong colors and abstract prints. The traditional sari has been updated by well-known Indian designers such as Tarun Tahiliani and Satya Paul as well by international fashion houses such as Hermes and Louis Vuitton, leaving the fashionista spoiled for choice.
Bridal Sari - Timeless Classic
The most important part of an Indian bride’s trousseau is the bridal sari. Indian weddings usually are elaborate multi-day affairs, with many different rituals and functions and each one demands a new sari. A bridal sari is a traditional one, usually made of silk, with heavy embroidery or embellishments and in a vibrant color, red being the most popular. Each region has its own unique type of sari and the bride generally wears her native, traditional design and style.
