I like the idea of a pop-up shop. Essentially it is a shot set up along with the fashion show or unveiling of a line. As soon as it is seen on the ramp, you can go and order it right away! You are shoping straight off the runway.
Otherwise, it takes 6-8 months to get you want and by that time, you may have forgotten all about it.

If the one positive thing that has come out of the archaic love story Ekk Deewana Tha is that the film’s heroine, British beauty pageant winner Amy Jackson, has taken to saris like fish does to water. Perhaps looking at her ease and grace with which she’s carrying the Indian garb in the film, well-known designer Bhairavi Jaikishan got her to be the showstopper for her bridal collection show at the Lakme Fashion Week. While the angelic looking beauty, a model earlier, definitely appears comfortable strutting around in the white and pastel pink sheer sari, her eyes seem to be searching for someone. Prateik, maybe? Anyway, later in the video, Amy reveals that after wearing saris for six months for EDT she has fallen in love with this conservative yet sexy outfit
If you want to see the video of Amy Jackson walking the ramp and watch her talk about sarees in a beautiful accent!
I love the coin-dot saree on this petite woman from the early 20th century. Though the colouring added to the image is beautifully done, I think we’ve lost something in the translation. Was the saree really a solid grey with white circles? It looks heavier than I suspect it was, more flat or less delicate, if you see what I’m (not) seeing. The woven golden border does retain its sheen.
The model’s traditional velvet choli has ornaments of silk or metallic embroidery that follow the simple construction of the sleeve along the neck and down the body. And I like her stacked necklaces, a pearl choker above the piece at her throat. A feather fan, small earrings and minimal bracelets complete her look of restrained elegance.
