What makes a Kanjeevaram a Kanjeevaram? Surely, the thick borders must have something to do with it. And the all-silk deal, too? Ah, but say hello to modern fashion!
Designers have started to do away with the borders, usually substituting the saris with a temple (step-style)pallav. They are splashing in the tissues and tussars, and oodles of embroidery as well. The sari that symbolises tradition, now epitomises the tradition of change.
At Tara's 95, Parklane, find the kanjeevarams in all their finery. Lose yourself in a mind-boggling collection of exquisitely embroidered designer kanjeevarams with kasuti.
The collection comes from the house of Pallave Saris of Bangalore. Please call 2781-2160 for more details.
