Back to the roots

Now is a good time as any to go back to the roots. With design mavens like Sanjay Garg for Raw Mango, Vaishali S, Wendell Rodricks teaching us a thing or two about going back to the Indian textiles, the design scene in India looks richer than ever before. The saree in khadi, matka silk, chanderi and other hand spun textiles is suddenly the new cool option. Not to say that it ever was not. India's design history has always been rich and our resources are never ending. The man power is talented and it is phenomenal what a little tapping into it can do. But these designers with interesting cuts and drapes are making these options seem so much more appealing to everyone. I for one am sold.
To the outfit now. With an attempt to do a half drape saree, this look is the more earthy and unkempt one amongst the two that we shot for my friend's college project. The half saree look can be achieved this Diwali even without the complications of the whole nine yards. Take a cue from the photos and you definitely run the chance of upping the style quotient at that coveted Diwali party. ;)
