Saree, the traditional Indian garment, has been witnessing a change in styling by various designers and stylists for years, and yet again, a new era of not only experimenting with fabrics but also draping styles, is here.

Gone are the days when saree was only an Indian traditional attire. With time and western influences, it has turned into a modern narrative from just a mere occasional outfit; not only in terms of fabrics but also the draping styles are witnessing a reinvention.

From linen, denim sarees, bikini sarees, saree gowns, double pallu sarees to saris worn with belts, boots, shirts, jeans and boxy blouses, the garment is in a state of rethink.

Designers like Manish Malhotra, Tanira Sethi, Rta Kapur Chishti, Anavila, Sanjay Garg, Payal Khandwala and many more are innovating sarees on the loom, creating interesting and alternative draping techniques.
