"The beauty of the Sari lies in its humility. A graceful piece of yardage that lends itself to be morphed into different kinds of drapes, finally taking the shape of the wearer", the ace couturier Amit Aggarwal while so poetically quotes this for Grazia Magazine, we couldn't disagree with him.
Being one of the oldest garment to stem from our traditional past, Saree is way more than just those nine yards of elegance we believe. It is rather an emotion that connects us all to our Indian roots. It is not just a surreal expression of Indian handloom but, an expression of ourselves and our personal style statement as well. No wonder it is so happily incorporated and accepted by woman all over the world and especially, by the brides. Right from stuffing their trousseaus with both new-age and heirloom pieces to even slipping into a beautiful sari on their wedding day, brides around the globe are all game for dolling up in this garment that can be worn in so many versatile ways.
And, it is for our sheer and pure love for sarees that when we came across this styled shoot planned by M'finity Events for Khush Wedding Magazine, we couldn't resist ourselves from showing this to you. This isn't just your normal shoot ladies, it's way beyond that. This shoot put together by the combined efforts of some prominent names in the industry is that perfect blend of contemporary elegance and traditional charm that every bride-to-be desires for.
