Calling sarees the most elegant attire sounds like a cliché,given the wide acceptance of the fact. Though the epitome of tradition,the attire is by no means old and out-dated. It has been successful in establishing itself as a modern outfit,thanks to the experiments that have constantly made the attire more elegant,more beautiful and more graceful. Celebrating the super attire,designer Gauri Kaigaonkar recently launched her collection of designer sarees. “It’s not only about draping the saree in a perfect manner,it’s also about the confidence that the dress instills in a woman. Sarees have undergone a lot of changes and there is a lot of scope for experimentation,which fascinates me. While heavy sarees were considered uneasy a few years back,now they are back in vogue,” says Kaigaonkar.
