“I have designed a collection of ready-to-wear saris which can readily draped around a woman’s body,”
I have also given some of them slits, which looks very unusual.
She further elaborates, “These saris are pieced together differently. If you deconstruct the sari, it has six yards of fabric. The pallu is attached to the waist and the saris fit all sizes.”
“That is when I came up with the idea to create a fuss-free sari.” Shaina will be showcasing the collection at the launch of the store ‘Bollywood Mischief’ in Bandra on Monday.

Ok, granted that it is a nice saree, two blouses are better than one and the possibilities it offers are welcome. But do you really have to call it Maa Beti Saree?
Both of these blouses look, pretty, sensuous and appropriate. What part of it is not age appropriate?
May be call it Twin Sister saree, or your secret self saree, or something.

The Paithani saree is known the world over for its uniqueness. It is one of the most beautiful sarees in the world. Beautifully crafted, with an exquisite zari border, this saree is truly a poem in silk. The Paithani saree is chosen by brides to wear on their special day, especially in Gujarati and Maharashtrian families.
In an original Paithani saree, pure silk is used in the weaving of the body and pure gold and silver zari is used in the pallu and the border. The zari used in the preparation of the saree is specially procured from Surat in Gujarat. The process of preparation of a Paithani saree can take a time period ranging from a month to years. It is because of these reasons that this saree is rather expensive. To bring down the price of these sarees, weavers are using silver instead of gold and silk in place of silver.
Traditionally, Paithanis used to have a plain body with a heavy golden border and a large pallu. However, with the passage of time, various motifs began to be used in these sarees.
