Over the weekend, the city’s ladies met over quite a ‘creative’ meal. Ogaan’s Kavita and Aashti Bhartia hosted a sari soiree at DLF Emporio to re-introduce guests to the innovative art of draping the sari.

Rita Kapur Chishti, who can at best be described as the ultimate sari historian, showed the ladies some rare styles of wearing the six-yard wonder, like the off-shoulder tribal style from Kerala, the modified Odissi, and so on.

Even the hosts were draped in interesting styles by Chishti. As guests trickled in, they were led to a makeshift changing room where they were dressed by Chishti and her Sari School team, as she engaged them in sari trivia.

We spotted columnist Seema Goswami, socialite Binita Rawley and designers Shrivan and Narresh sampling the delicious fare and the excellent wines, while the others, especially the men, caught up on the latest goss in town.
