It’s that time of the year when the ever elegant saris are in the forefront of your wardrobe as you flaunt this traditional attire in weddings and festive occasions.
The new Jade cocktail collection offers a wide range of modern chic saris that capture both romance and elegance. French chiffons, silks, laces and tulle have been used in the collection and the colour palette is decidedly young/pop along with sophisticated evening colours like midnight blue. Special attention has been paid in this collection to the detailing and cut of the blouse that accompanies each sari.
“We revere the sari and consider it our ideal canvas,” comment designers Monica and Karishma, adding “The play of colours, embroidery and draping make the sari an absolute joy to design. In many ways, the garment is a reflection of our design philosophy, effortless elegance.” Designer Dilnaz Karbhary has presented the sari in the classic traditional style blended seamlessly with dazzling grace. The designs represent neat oppulence crafted out of fine work and detailings.
Hyderabad-based designer Gaurang Shah who has been designing saris for quite some time now, has a new range for this season, in bright hues and patterns. “Saris are the irrepleaceable attire meant for Indian Women — a magic garment which flawlessly flaunts the curvaceous body. No other garment can beat the ethereal grace of a beautiful sari. The royalty, elegance and feminism exuberated through a sari can make a lady stand out in a crowd effortlessly,” says Gaurang.
“For a festive season, this grament is an obvious choice. Taken to the exquisite artistry of my saris through the exclusive jamdani weave, the breathtaking embroidered detailing, the stylishly tailored blouse with the perfect colour combinations, any woman will love draping herself in this.” He adds, “A sari is in vogue always. But the younger crowd can go for ankle length flary kota, chikan or kalamkari anarkalis with an elegant dupatta. Whereas those who prefer to be on the minimalistic side can go for a perfectly tailored kalamkari, chikankari or kanjeevraam straight kurta with an elaborate dupatta. Bright colours like reds, yellows, oranges are in trend this season. Being the festival time, the preferred choice of fabrics are mostly silk, raw silk, tussar silk.”
Making sure that this festive spirit does not get too brutal on your pockets, many online portals are offering hefty discounts on their festive range. Moreover, to make your precious saris all the more stunning, you can opt for sari draping workshops that explore the myriad stylish options that you can choose from.
