I would not have expected this combination to work, but somehow it is not as bad as one might have imagined.

Neha Dhupia – saree blouse design : high concept but impractical

Neha Dhupia   saree blouse design : high concept but impractical    designer saree

This is a beautiful design for a backless blouse; all the tassels converging to a point!

But it violates my first rule of fashion designing – never rely on just ONE fastner to hold the garment, especially a tight fitting blouse.

I’d probably bring the tassels and converge them on a reinforced strip embellished with jewel encrusted pin or a piece from the blouse fabric.

Recycling the same blouse with different sarees : top designer do it, why can’t you?

I am not going to tell you the designer who did this. Just look at the picture and and see what you think of the same blouse with different sarees.

Same blouse, completely different saree with different primary colors, different secondary colors, different drape and different silhouette.

These are from Shobha De December 07 and May 08 collections.

I am not complaining about it or chiding her; on the contrary, I want to point out that the modern saree ensemble, with bold designs, allows you to experiment and try some interesting combination.

Blouses are relatively cheap, so get more than one blouse for each saree and then you can also experiment with combinations that are slightly different but make the outfit inters ting.

Is it Saree, sari, shari, sharee or saari?

Saree, sari, shari, sharee, saari, shaaree; did I cover all possible ways that people have been spelling the saree?

I prefer saree, because thats how it is written in devnagari script. But I am not fanatical about it; whatever works for you, whatever your local custom is!

Miss India 1999 Gul Panag in Anita Dongre’s Collection

Miss India 1999 Gul Panag in Anita Dongres Collection    designer saree

A beautiful, gentle traditional, retro look from Anita Dongre. She recently released her GrassRoot, ecofriendly collection.

I liked her Indian Soul collection, I am not sure if this is a part of it.

The ensamble below is from the Indian Soul collection.

I didn’t know that the Indian Soul was backless!

Just kidding; the fashion photography in this set is really nice; the locations are well chosen (or have been well photoshopped).

Latest saree design 2008:

Here is a transparent black saree with rose appliqué and interesting designs.

It seems that some of the roses are sewn on.

I have never been fond of appliqués, especially of the size used here. Really small ones look nice, but larger it gets, more fake it looks and detracts for the richness of the outfit.

This could be Rohit Bal’s saree, but I am not sure.
