The nine yard long story

Howdy, everybody. Winter is all over the place & it has already started sending chilled breezes. Also, the wedding season is on in full swing. And with it comes the eternal favorite of women's attire in India, the Sari.

From ethnic to contemporary, from traditional to designer, from embroidered to less embellished, from pink to beige, from georgette & chiffons to delicate nets, from a teenager to a grandma, the Saris can be adorned for any occasion, any time of the year, & have become an evergreen favorite of many.

That's the reason why ladies love to don the nine yards not only in India but around the world. Here are some of the dazzling looks of the divas who have carried the Sari with great style & elegance across the globe.

Designers & fashionistas too have experimented with the flamboyancy of the Sari to make a style statement on the runway. They have refashioned there Indian inspirations into a modern avatar of the draperies.

First Ramp Collection

Well this is my first post, although Im just a fresher in this field, I would love to share my views & ideas that can be combined to form remarkable trends.

So, I thought what else could have been the best other than putting up my own first ramp collection.

These are a few of the ensembles of my graduation collection, the theme being Lunar Eclipse. I have used shades of blue, gray, silver & black, chiffons, silks, ombre dyed fabrics, lots of surface design techniques & different varieties of sequins.

I take great inspirations from my ideal designers, Giorgio Armani, Coco Chanel & Elie Saab, whose collections are my all time favorites.

What keeps me moving & experimenting can be quoted in the words of a great designer, "Fashion is to acknowledge the elegance of the uncomplicated."
