This yellow neatly pleated saree has been draped in regular Nivi style with seedha pallu. But unlike the Gujarati pallu, she has preferred to let it fall on right side, instead of draping it along the front to carry it back to tuck it behind. The neatly pleated pallu has been left hanging to bare the midriff, to give it a modern appeal.

The Nivi style of saree draping is possibly the most popular of them all and in practice for long. Nivi style of saree draping finds its origin in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh. For the locals, it is a traditional form of draping a saree. However, with its versatility to suit any occasion, this style has become universal and represents the cultural heritage of India.

This particular drape gives a sassy look to the regular Nivi drape with a twist to pallu styling, which is rolled around the neck over a sleeveless blouse to give a modern appeal to the otherwise regular drape.

North East India has the seven beautiful states of Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Nagaland and Manipur and Tripura and these are collectively called the Seven Sisters whose cultural richness is also equally mesmerizing. Recently cuts and silhouettes inspired from the North East have begun to be very popular on the Indian fashion circuits and some of the styles have also been represented by International designers.

This is a drape inspired by the culture and patterns of their dresses and I call it North East Style Drape. I did a simple variation in the fall of the pallu and instead tucked in in the blouse making it fall in the front.

When the simple ‎drape‬ of a regular georgette‬ saree goes modern, the look for sure turns glam‬. Dare2drape motivated me to try something new and hence this scarf style drape is the outcome of the same which not only make s a woman stylish, classy but also adds vintage to this traditional garment. One can carry this drape with extreme ease and comfort, all day long at work with that elegant style adding extra charm to the carrier.
