Recently, I went to my hometown Bhagalpur for some hand loom silk project, if you guys follow me on Instagram or any other social media handles, you must be knowing I’m a Fashion designer too. For this design project, I visited the villages of Bhagalpur, full of weavers and almost every house was mud house and had in house hand loom setup. I got very inspired looking at the female weavers and labourers in their sarees and how they drape the saree according to the way they work. The women I met there on the trains, road and fields while traveling are the finest examples of the sari on-the-go, of feeling comfortable in the drape and making it a way of living. Today’s post is inspired from these women and very close to my heart.
I wanted to create a look inspired from these women of villages and we draped six yards with a twist. There was a lot of thinking before me and my sister shot this look. I wanted to create a look which should be easygoing and strongly wanted to infuse something new. For this look, we have infused three themes- Indian, Western and Bohemian and chose a village location infront of a mud house and a farmland.
With the summer at its peak, the need of the hour is of course loose fit and comfortable clothes, so we opted for chiffon printed sarees as it is light weight, flowy and easy to drape, stolen from my mom’s wardrobe. I paired this multicolor chiffon saree with boxy fit doodle drop shoulder tee. On the other hand, my sister paired tonal blue chiffon saree with a contrast rust orange pleated top and made braided hairstyle. We created a fusion look by combining western top and indian saree and to give a little bohemian feel to the look, we accessorized it with oxidized silver choker, earrings and anklet. Hope you guys loved the styling and do tag me if you happen to recreate this look.
Thank you for stopping by and reading the post. Will be back soon with another saree styling post. STAY TUNED…!!
