We think style is about more than just fashion. It is about presenting oneself with flair, exhibiting a verve for colour and appreciating the manner in which clothes, accessories and hair all work together to present a truly unique appearance. And nothing is more difficult to pull off than a sari. Described as ‘a world of meaning in a single piece of cloth’, the sari encapsulates the beauty, adaptability and personality of India’s most iconic garment. The multifunctional sari is used to “filter out smog, carry keys, wipe a table, lift a hot vessel, wipe sweat and protect one’s modesty” whilst at the same time being used as a garment for seduction, passion and flirtation and to rock the red carpet. Here we present the 5 women who totally rocked in a sari in 2014.
