Modern interpretations of a sari, the six-yard wonder wrap of ethnic Indian wear, are becoming a rage among women, who like a western and functional touch in their ensembles.
Premier design label Satya Paul's sari collections have several options for such fashionistas:
Ready to wear: Try suspender and armhole saris. Divided palazzos of the suspender sari don't restrict your movement and the unstitched pallu can also be worn as a stole. You can literally 'slip into' the pallu of armhole saris as these have pre-stitched opening for the arm. You need not pin it up.
Demi Couture: The sari gown is a no-fuss drape. It has a sleek pallu fastened over the shoulder. It can also be worn as a dress. Wear a belt or kamarbandh on top of it to highlight your waist.
Festive collection: Wear pre-stitched kaftan sari as an off-shoulder dress or with blouse to maintain the traditional look.
