OMG, saree dress only Masaba can do

Some might say it is gimmicky.. which it is..

Some might say that it is just a dress with a pallu attached… which it is..

Some might say that it looks like an afterthought and it is not integrated…. which it is..

But when you saw this, did you not do a double take?

Masaba – Sarees with a Twist

Masaba   Sarees with a Twist    designers designer saree

Masaba was supposed to come to LA a couple of weeks ago and I was really looking forward to seeing her.

She was in NYC on the 12th, I think and the plan was that she would come to LA on 18th of 20th..

Alas.. it didn’t happen. I went to the trunk show where some of her designs were displayed.

This is a nice picture from her instagram feed; looks like taken during her NY visit. Now I feel even worse that she didn’t make it to LA.

Oh well, next time, Ms. Masaba Gupta. See you then…

By the way.. I see what you did there with the bindis…

(Same bindi as it is in her logo of Masaba.. got it?)

Anupama’s Style

This could easily have been a ‘Wordless Wednesday’ post but I think a little context is worthwhile here. The woman in the picture is, fashion designer, Anupama Dayal and, yes, she is wearing one of her own creations. Love the smile, love the pose and, certainly, love the saree!

The sheer magic of Manish Malhotra

Esha Gupta in Manish Malhotra’s black net embroidered saree … we all are familiar with this famous masterpiece from Malhotra’s WIFW Fall/Winter 2013 ramp, where the designer layered the sheer black net over a red metallic underskirt. I came across this piece again today and I’m still completely captivated by its beauty.

So Now and So 1940s Retro!

So Now and So 1940s Retro!    vintage sarees saree history saree ads designers

This has such a wonderful 1940s sense of style, like a noir heroine in a classic film!  And it is better in black-and-white than colour.  I found the photograph just last week on the Exclusively. In fashion site, with Payal Singhal sarees being featured that day.  Truly, all it lacks are the more extreme shoulder pads favoured in the ’40s, with every other element being perfect to do a little time travelling.  Love it, love it, love it!
