Street Style India-A Sari Story

Is sari age appropriate? Well there is no such term applicable here, whether you are young or middle aged or above, the sari is for everybody, it is a quintessential timeless piece in your wardrobe. Interesting part of sari is, it has a emotional value to it, like classic jewels saris too get transferred from one generation to another, from  “classy” grandmother to “elegent” mother to the “edgy” daughter . Young fashionistas these days are opting for desi cool rather than being uber chic, even for not so occasional events too. It is now a common sight to see young girls experimenting with hand-loom saris & drapes. Some prefer mixing it with western pieces & some keep it completely traditional. So I came to this conclusion that as far as saris are concerned age is just a number, so here is a photo series I shot at various places of India majorly New Delhi, Mumbai & Jaipur, that celebrates SARI for everybody (literally!)
