The saree can be drapped in a numerous styles, the most common and preffered style is wrapping it around the waist, concentrating the pleats in the centre and taking the pallu over the shoulder. This single long piece of cloth is the most versatile. It makes a women more beautiful , adds to her charm, elegance and grace.
This time I wore the most common style. I felt as if I was standing in the middle of the rainbows with so many colours around me. Each colour gelling with other at the same time making it distinct.

A mix of light yellow and light orange color on the pleats was like the golden ball  throwing its twilight.
Week on week I was feeling thrilled to go on with the dare2drape challege.
As an adolescent my pupils would often dialate at the very thought of wearing a saree.
The day when I had to wear a saree would be a mission saree day. But soon to my realisation it was fun a real fun.

This is my last drape. This time I thought of totally metamorphosing the style.
Wearing it like a dupatta and tucking it with pins on both the sides over the shoulder.
Doing the drapes with this fabulous piece of TRIVENI saree had changes my views that the saree should be worn only on occasions.
It was overall captivating experience for me.

This lovely TRIVENI saree tempted me to try more and more drapes. The soft texture of the saree was giving a feeling of comfort, warmth and relaxation.
Triveni means confluence/ fusion and so I thought of blending my creativity too. Once again I went for a fusion drape, meant for a formal wear. This time I wore a kind of a crop top, taking the pallu from behind instead in a regular way. Wraping it around the neck once again and tying a knot on one side and leaving the remaining pallu downwards in an uneven manner, there was no need to pin the saree / pallu at all.

I decided to choose a multicoloured chiffon georgette bandhani printed TRIVENI saree, with a silver border striking on it.  With so many colours in it, it gave a new look each time I drapped it differently. It was easy to twist turn and tie knots and the bandhani print gave a formal as well as a casual look.
I am starting with a formal fusion style as my first drape. Trying to take it around the neck so that it appears like a collar and then dropping it further like a scarf. I also chose to wear a T shirt to add on to the formal look.
