“The Sari, it is said, was born on the loom of a fanciful weaver. He dreamt of a woman. The shimmer of her tears. The drape of her tumbling hair. The colors of her many moods. The softness of her touch. All these he wove together. He couldn’t stop. He wove for many yards. And when he was done, the story goes, he sat back and smiled and smiled and smiled”.
I love the alluring and sensual touch in the painting. The ‘big-red-pottu’ and the red border adds just enough colour to the art piece! I think it’s perfect!

I discovered this photograph at British Library online. I don’t think I could smile with that kind of load on my head but these women not only they could strike a pose (almost) but the fact that they are smiling for the photographer is really intriguing.

This season, Lakme Fashion Week introduced ‘Picture Perfect Award’, an exciting initiative to recognize the brilliance in fashion photography and put a spotlight on the effort of the many photographers present at the event.
Behind-the-stage picture of model Nicole Faria above was taken by freelance photographer Kunal Lakhani and was one of the top 20 pictures that was selected for the award.
