Saree – Six Yards of Elegance
Thousands of years ago when Hindus believed that stitched clothes were impure,Women therefore draped a long piece of unstitched cloth, revealing the navel…considered the source of life and creativity.Derived from the sanskrit word “sati”, meaning a strip of cloth, the saree was a perfect fit for the era,when the concept of beauty was that of a small waist and large bust and hips.It made a women look feminine exposing the waist of a woman and highlighting it.
The garment still beats any other hands down when it comes to sensuality.Today it is ofcourse worn a lot differently.Infact it has been completely reinvented of late- what with a pepium choli, a polo neck, and even military style jacket.The old world charm still exists in the modern day fashion, interpretations however continue to change season after season.
The fashion world is now looking inwards, ever since it started showcasing on a wider international platform.The world wants to see what we can give that’s related to our roots.The saree is a best answer to that.
A saree can take a whole new personality, depending on how it is worn and even where it is worn.A Gujarati woman typically wears a seedha pallu while in maharashtra, the saree apes in dhoti style, while some of the fabric is tucked between the legs to divide them.In the tamilian version, after wrapping around the waist,the pleats are positioned around the left leg. A Bengali style saree is worn pleatless, wrapped around the waist, brought back around the right side and the pallu thrown over the left shoulder.
