Sarees have stiff competition from western and other formal Indian dresses, but they have retained their grace. Here's how you can drape the six yard wonder in style. (By designer Varija Bajaj )

As a designer, I am in complete awe of this simple piece of cloth called Saree, which has played and still plays an integral role in the life of an Indian woman. It has always been a source of motivation to me to experiment with silhouettes (which have seldom been explored earlier).




Today Sarees have stiff competition from western and other formal Indian dresses…and yet they have retained their grace, all the while rising up to the competition.


Blouses may have shrunk to halters or bra tops, but they continue to be the top preference of young girls for their trousseau. So it’s evident that a Saree can only evolve in style and stature…but never vanish.
