I have been neglecting Saree History and heritage it brings. Here is a start of a new series where I will periodical show paintings, mostly from 1900′s but some earlier ones, that are saree related.

And this is a great start: not just a saree, but a saree shop painting. Absolutely amazing, I’d buy that saree in a heart beat.

Also, notice the shoes on the floor – pretty nice.

This is modern classic saree.

I love saying that; saree designs offer a great opportunity to combine the old and new, traditional and contemporary, forgotten and fresh in to a new piece of six yards of life form.

Yes Virginia, there is a saree with corset; you don’t have to show your navel if you don’t want to

This is a great saree with delicate pink and fresh yellow; the blouse design continues the scalloped edges of the saree and light highlighted hair go well with it.

Mustafa Hassanali, Tanzania’s fashion designer’s saree

I especially enjoy viewing the saree designs of non-desi or non-Indian for that matter, designers. They bring something special to the six yards of canvas and it is a different picture all together.

Indian cricket premier leauge cheerleaders in Saree

There is a lot of controversy about the cheer leaders at the Indian Premier Cricket League IPL. Politicians hate it when the cheer leaders wear skimpy clothes.

Here is a solution that I found recently. Let’s make saree a cheerleader uniform.

Just wait till they start dancing.

I am just kidding with the picture above, but seriously, if one wanted to have an ultra sexy saree for cheer leader uniform, that can be arranged!

We have seen it in many a bollywodd films. I don’t know whey it can’t be implemented at the stadium.

I will update this post when I find a perfect picture to show that a sexy saree uniform would work for the Indian Cricket League.

Update:

This is what the Orissa Cricket Association (OCA) chose for the uniform. Lycra for body hugging movement. Strangely, some of the UK sites are calling this a saree; proving once again that they don’t know cricket and they don’t know saree!
