When talking of retro look in Indian fashion, Bollywood flashback is inevitable. The saree gown is no exception. This new trend is in fact a sensational tribute to the yesteryear’s Hindi film actress and model Mumtaz. Her trendsetting orange saree worn in the 1968 film Brahmachari has become a style inspiration for the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, Shilpa Shetty and international celebrities such as Hayden Panettiere. It wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that the Mumtaz saree is back with a bang.
Easy-to-wear and ethereal in look, these pre-stitched drapes make for graceful party wear. Exemplifying the Indo-western fusion, saree gown is indeed a reinvention of the six yard.
