The saree is an emblem of Indian tradition and values with a sense of unity and clarity. The sarees are the representation of the traditions, elegance and enhance the grace of the Indian women with different draping patterns.
When a woman veils her body in a saree she is not hiding herself from men. She is revealing her dignity to men.
Each sari has its own grace and concept. Designer Sarees have now become a fashion statement for women. Indian brides usually prefer wearing sarees for their weddings. These sarees range from the customary sarees like Kanchipuram sarees, Banarasi sarees to designer embroidery sarees. Some of the main wedding sarees are bridal, traditional, printed, bandhani, zari, silk and embroidered sari. The nine yards of Indian excellence when draped around a woman’s body not only defines her silhouette but also her persona. The novel attire of all Indian weddings, brides prefer sarees over any other Indian attire because of its aesthetically conventional statement. Brides take utmost pride in being a part of India’s rich heritage.
Some people can flaunt a saree with gliding ease. Just like our very own Madhuri Dixit, Vidya Balan and the legendary Rekha in her magnificent kanjeevarams. Their appearances in the traditional drapes at red carpet events, film promotions or a simple pooja are absolutely spellbinding. Celebs such as Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley, Naomi Campbell etc. have also been seen adorning the nine yards.
Quoting Sabyasachi, “A Queeny Dhody will never influence fashion the way a Vidya Balan, Rani Mukherjee or a Rekha can…”
