What a start….
Couldn’t be happier….
Full 5-page feature on L’Officiel India November Issue.


1. Pallu Worn As Scarf:

This style is giving tribute to the humble scarf with Neck twirls, handkerchief drapes and knots. Tied with bigger pleats and the pallu meticulously tied around the neck like a scarf. In this look the conventional saree blouse has been replaced with the ill fitting military green pullover to add to the comfort factor and also to generate a tinge of bohemian style.

2. The Fan Drama:
Checkered shirts has been a go to since time immemorial and we easily blends into lowers of any kind. Having that in mind I risked it by uniting it with this off white netted saree, the drama in this look is invariably the black and red checkered shirt. The metallic golden belt was incorporated to complement the golden sequined works. To make sure that the shirt gets its due highlight I draped the saree in a manner where the pallu is rolled tightly and neatly on the shoulder and the fan for a more dramatic look.

3. Odissi Dance Style Saree:
It’s almost like men have abandoned the dhoti and so it’s time for women to embrace it through the saree and give it a whole new lease of life with a edgy, old world charm. Apart from the dhoti style draping the look is also a lot dependent on the denim top and the leather waist belt which infuses an ultra modern vibe without losing the ethnic charm.

4. Saree + Pants:
I thought it was time to let go off the inskirt hassle of a saree and thus the ever comfortable jeans occurred to me. All I needed to do was to make about 10 to 15 medium sized pleats and neatly tuck it into the bottoms and tie the pallu around my neck like a scarf and voila there was the traditional saree with a western streak. To keep the contemporary look going I wore the black cropped cardigan in place of the blouse.

5. Reinventing Maharani Style Drape:
This look is by and large to acknowledge the crop top rage with the saree. While the draping is quiet classic I have played with the pleats, instead of following the usual 7 to 10 small or medium pleats I settled for 4 big pleats so that I can make the pallu fall is style if its own.. On the other hand floral crop top I believe has broken the monotony of being the saree and blouse style.
