1. Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla’s Embroidered Sari: Chikanwork on the fall and pleats make this sari stand out. The mukesh-inspired work on the round necked blouse added to the grace.
2. Mohnisha Jai Singh’s Lehenga Sari: Combining the lehenga with a sari, this design is brilliant. The embroidered lehenga-like bottom is amped up by a detailed pallu. The pastel lehenga sari is accentuated with a houndstooth blouse with a deep and stylized neckline.
3. Rohit Bal’s Floral Sari: Simple floral embroidered sari with colourful borders were paired with a long floral jacket. We love!
4. Jyotsna Tiwari’s Laced Gown Sari: The amalgamation of a gown and sari was made prettier by the generous use of lace. Sheer detailing around the hem and neckline further added value.
5. Gaurav Gupta’s Sequinned Sari: The fawn sari stood out for its peculiar drape. Embellished with sequins and sheers, the details on the shoulder made this sari and extremely eccentric one.
6. Ashima Leena’s Dakshin Sari: Bringing South Indian aesthetics to the fore, this Ashima Leena sari used gingham-like fabric (Read about Gingham fabric here)and embellished it with typical South Indian borders. Paired with a kancheepuram Nehru jacket, the sari was a refreshing change.
