generation fashon designers know the obsession of Indian women with sarees.
However, they are also a little worried about young women of India who just
make a distance from sarees due to the so called troublesome techniques of
wearing saree. There is one more issue- women from western countries too
seem to have been mesmerized by the charm of Indian
. They too want to wear sarees. If you don't believe, just look
at Angelina Jolie and
others wearing a saree!
Why am I telling all this to you? Because I want you all fashion conscious
people to know that the
designers of India
have set their eyes to make sari the most desirable
clothing of Indian as well as other women from all over the world. They are
inventing new saree designs to go with the modern urban lifestyle. Just have
a look at these new sarees or more correctly said, the 'neo sarees' and know
how latest sarees are modified without compromising with the basic
unstitched spirit of the traditional sarees.
Pyjama Sarees- Designer Anamika Khanna
One of the very creative fashion designers, Anamika Khanna, recently
showcased her pyjama sarees at the Lakme fashion week 2009. This new saree
design has crushed muslin pallus and the
have been replaced
with pajamas. So, now if you said that you experience difficulty in walking
with the saree tied all around your petticoat, no one's going to take it!
Just wear a pyjama saree and walk as comfortably as you walk in trousers.
Saree Gown- Designer Wendell Rodricks
another very talented fashion designer, Wendell Rodricks, has introduced the
sari gown. During the
Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW)
, his backless red sari gown was a
rocking hit! It looked sexy and trendy on model Jesse Randhawa who walked
the ramp wearing it. According to Rodricks, they are extremely
comfortable and designed to stay in place no matter what. The built-in
choli and split pallu of saree gown has been so liked by the celebrity
ladies that they have flooded the designer with its request. Don't be

Jersey Saree- Designer Wendell Rodricks
Wendell Rodricks is really up to something! Not satisfied with only one- he
has designed yet another new saree- the jersey saree. He displayed this
fabulous saree design at the Lakme Fashion Week. Jersey is fast becoming the
number one choice of young generation due to its breezy, sexy and casual
looks. What impresses the young the most is that jersey could go with all-
tops, tunics, pencil skirts, dresses- and now Rodricks has modified it to be
a saree too! This jersey saree has a built-in choli and the pallu is split
in one section, which gathers to a halterneck. The other half loops into a
'kimono sleeve pallu'. It really looks trendy!
Jeans and Saree- Designer Nida Mahmood
This is a deadly combination introduced by the youngg innovative
fashion designer Nida Mahmood- Jeans with saree! Jeans is the most sought
after and the popular womens western wear. Saree is the purest of Indian
womens wear. So, when east meets west, the result is going to be a big hit
indeed. In fact, what Nida displayed in the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion
Week (WIFW), is the net, georgettes and
jeans in a trendy manner. The saree is draped without its initial round- or
the traditional tucking in of saree's one end all around the petticoat. The
sari draping starts with making pleats and tucking them in front portion of
the jeans and then making a pallu out of the other end of the saree. The
saree blouse designs
remain the same as worn with
. And yes, it's important to carry the outfit with right
accessories and look, as told by Nida herself! Youngsters will definitely
like to follow this trend for any casual party.
Chhotu Sarees- Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee
Yet another innovative new saree design has been introduced by the
talented fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee- the Chhotu Sarees. These
short sarees- that are short by six inches than the traditional lenghth of a
saree- are inspired by the tribal women clothing. With a length that doesn't
touch the feet and thus is comfortable to walk with, this chhotu saree can
prove to be trendy women's office wear. The chhotu saris are
the rural craftsmen to whom goes a part of profit from sale of these sarees.
Therefore, these sarees well go with todays youngsters who are trendy yet
These were only some of the new saree designs introduced by some of the
fashion designers. With a whole lot of taleneted fashion designers in India,
it is expected that more neo sarees will be invented for giving comfort and
style to today's busy young women of India. Just watch out for them in the
future fashion shows!
