Rohit Bal, the designer extraordinaire, sketched this for Saree for Pamela Anderson.
I don’t think she needs to show so much skin to look sexy in a saree.

I love this particular ensemble from Anjana Bhargav! It is from her Revival collection; simple, elegant and pure. It has such an interesting look to it.
Models walk the ramp for Anjana Bhargav at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2008. Her collection which is called ‘Revival’ focuses on intricately embellished light weight cottons and hand woven fabrics. Colors were white to antique golden hues, which was teamed with warm earthy shades of sandy beiges, muddy greens and coppery brown.

You didn’t think we forgot about the Wills Fashion Week did you?
Here is the first post from the event.
Gauri Bajoria gives us Hiji Biji collection – this was the only saree that I saw.
First show of the third day of WIFW brought about variety and mixes of styles and designs featured by Gauri Bajoria’s Hiji Biji a Bengali phrase which means haphazard collection for Spring Summer 2008. Candy colors muted alongside neutrals brought about a sense of sophistication with playful feeling for day wear.

Eminent Indian fashion designer Ritu Beri has been roped in by national carrier Air India to design the new uniform for its cabin crew and ground staff.
The design of the new uniforms draw inspiration from the Sun Temple of Konark in Orissa, yet maintains a modern outlook. The colour palette of the uniform is red, orange, black and white, with red standing for strength and orange for cultural roots. The uniform for the female employees, both ground staff and cabin crew, would include sarees, tunics, scarves, jackets, coats, aprons and shoes, while there would be specially designed ties for the male staff.
Like everything in India, there is controversy about the choice of Ritu Beri. You can read about it here.
I don’t really care about the politics of Saree Designs, but the part that I did agree with in the article was that the previous Saree uniform was worse than reject from Karol Bagh. I have no doubt Ritu will infuse some style in to it.
I have seen some pictures of the uniform but they are not clear enough to post here yet. Trust me, I will post them as soon as I get them.
