Abhishek Dutta is a winner of the Smirnoff international fashion award. The award-winning student of Wigan & Leigh College believes in creating garments with a difference. He focuses on wearibility along with a futuristic look by combining unconventional fabrics like denims, velvets, leather, etc. with various ancient embroideries and futuristic cuts.
Ritu Beri has been tapped to design the uniform (including sarees) for Air India.
Here are some hints on the design to come:
“The inspiration for this project comes from the sacred Konark Sun Temple of Puri. This Temple marks a point of achievement in architecture depicting the grace, joy and rhythm of life, all in its wondrous variety. There is an endless wealth of decoration, from intricate patterns to boldly standing sculptures, which is the foundation for the uniforms. The print on these saris will depict wheels and arches of the Temple. The saris and tunics will have sun symbols with rays going in all the directions reflecting the Konark Chakra…..”
The uniforms will include sarees, tunics, scarfs, jackets, coats, aprons and shoes as well as specially designed ties for men in colours of red, orange, black & white.
Can you tell that I am really looking forward to seeing her designs?
Ok, this is exhibit number one why most designers have abandoned heavy jewelry, especially heavy necklaces with their saree collections.
The jewelry looks so out of place. Instead of looking elegant, the outfit looks gaudy.
I like the saree, it is simple and colors are inviting but I am not convinced that it is pleated right. It looks “unmade” and haphazard.
Just image the same model, same saree, sans necklace and perfect pleats. Now that would be beautiful.

You want to see the same mistake repeated in another saree?
Again, lose the necklace, it is not helping, please. It is a gorgeous saree, it doesn’t need any help from gold jewelry.
I know, I know, the fashion show is sponserd by a Jewler, what do you expect? But when would they learn that jewelry is not something that you throw on after the fact; it is something that needs to be integrated in to the outfit.
If sarees are being innovated, the jewelry makers has to innovate with it. Don’t keep offering the same designs that don’t fit in the wardrobe, especially since the gold is $1000/oz.
This must be recent picture. You can tell by looking at the color of the blouse.
Just a few years ago, a blouse which didn’t exactly match with the saree color would have been unheard of.
I have seen an uptick in the interest in Gauri Bajoria. Interestingly, we also featured her saree as one of the top saree of 2007.
This a nice, flowing elegant saree. It is subdued and yet glamorous. Gorgeous color combination and the shoes are great as well.
I love the colors and the boldness of these prints. It connotes certain exuberance and has certain “see me soar” quality to it.
The backdrop of male models ogling doesn’t hurt the presentation either.
