Here’s the solution to all of you who shied away from wearing a saree because you could never master the art of how to wear it. Moreover, you know it better about how the uninitiated constantly worried about whether she is carrying off the saree properly.
So, here’s your solution. Go for the ready-to-wear saree.
“I have designed a collection of ready-to-wear saris which can readily draped around a woman’s body,” says the designer, adding, “There are Kanjivaram saris mixed with georgette, and brocade with chiffon. I have also given some of them slits, which looks very unusual.
She further elaborates, “These saris are pieced together differently. If you deconstruct the sari, it has six yards of fabric. The pallu is attached to the waist and the saris fit all sizes.”
Shaina herself modelled her creations for a photshoot with photographer Subi Samuel. “I didn’t want people to think that only models with perfect physiques look good in my saris and wanted to show how they look on real people,” explains Shaina.
According to Shaina these saris are perfect for special occasions. But how did Shaina come up with the concept? “Most NRI brides used to complain about how difficult it is to drape saris and most of them used to opt for a gown instead.”
“That is when I came up with the idea to create a fuss-free sari.” Shaina will be showcasing the collection at the launch of the store ‘Bollywood Mischief’ in Bandra on Monday.
“When Neha Shetty from ‘Bollywood Mischief’ approached me to showcase my collection at her store I thought it was a perfect platform for me to make an entry in the suburbs. Youngsters are very discerning and trendy in Bandra is the fashion and retail hub of the suburbs,” says Shaina.
