What does freedom mean to you?
For me, freedom is to express every thought and emotion that consumes me and there is no better way than through the medium of Fashion.
Since we are celebrating the 70th year of our Independence, I decided to curate a story by giving an Ode to the “Indian Saree”. These 9 yards symbolise our traditions, culture and roots.
For me, a traditional Saree is much more than clothing. For me, it depicts feminty, power, resilience and strength.
Gone are the days when a saree was only worn by housewives. Today, women are carrying Sarees to boardrooms and International platforms with much élan and grace.
Putting my freedom of expression to appropriate use, I decided to style a bright cotton saree with a twist. I wore it with a stark white full-sleeves shirt with broad shoulders. I wore a belt around it and accessorised the look with chunky statement jewellery pieces. The look couldn’t be complete without a bindi.
The intention behind curating this look was to portray a certain fierceness that all Indian women have deep within us. When it comes to Power Dressing, why just limit ourselves to Suits, Blouses and Pencil Skirts!
This look makes me prouder of the fact that I am an Indian woman wherein, I can infuse my personality, my style sensibilities with my roots and culture.
I’m sure you’ll agree with me that in a group of women dressed in elaborate gowns, a woman dressed in a Saree will always leave an impression.
I sincerely hope that you all will like this. Please feel free to give your feedback.
Until next post,
Lots of love
