This looks distinctive Satya Paul saree.
The Colombo Vogue fashion show was held at the Galadari Hotel over the weekend. The show was organized by the Rotary Club of Colombo Regency and the Sri Lanka Tourist Board. Pix by Kumara Dayawansa Nanneththi.
One of the commentator on Dailymirror noted that:
What a refreshing sight to dispel the gloom of kidnappings, killings, landslides, floods, high prices etc. Thats why they say a Thing of Beauty is a joy for ever.
A nice glamorous saree teamed with an attractive blouse design which keeps the traditional cuts intact.
We at saree dreams lament that fewer Bollywood actresses are donning saris these days, for glitzy events. The good news is that engagement and wedding parties still encourage people to break out their saris and other traditional attire.
The engagement and wedding sangeet receptions of Riddhima Kapoor, the daughter of 70′s teen heart throbs Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh was attended by many of the Bollywood beautiful people Rekha, Urmila, Gauri Khan, Dimple and Amisha Patel (pics below) in their best.
Urmila Matondkar in an unusual green and pink sari with the omni present Manish Malhotra in his favorite jeans
Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri glows in a bright pink sari, with Karan Johar holding a flower in the background
Jeetendra’s daughter Ekta wore a rather plain white sari with a black blouse
Zayed Khan (Sanjay Khan’s son) showed up with a hot looking woman wearing a pink sari and a strapless blouse
Dimple looked glam as always
The proud parents Rishi and Neetu with the couple
Karan Johar is wearing an interesting black kurta with teal accents. The woman with him seems quite a hottie but why is she wearing a sexy teal and tan blouse with a lime green sari?
Amisha Patel looked hot in a traditional looking georgette sari with a bikini blouse.
Rekha – the epitome of grace – is seriously over accessorized here although the gold and pink sari is very nice by itself!
This is not a saree, but considering how some of the tailored sarees tend to taper the pallu at the shoulders and considering that the blouses are getting smaller and smaller, how long before we see a saree like this at one of the desi fashion show?
The above is a model displaying a creation of Albanian designer Mirela Cici on April 14, 2008 on the ramp during the third day of ‘Albania Fashion Week’ in Tirana.
More to acknowledge the event then to show case the saree!
Hopefully we will see some interesting designs at the Colombo fashion statement.
