“The Gown-Like Drape”

By: Ananda K. Nunez

Elegance and tradition weaved into a beautiful deep green silk saree with golden glowing lotus flowers. The design and colors are as traditional as you can get, the challenge was to create a new drape that would highlight the elegance of the saree in a contemporary style. I decided to go for a gown-like drape with pleats on the bottom right side. Then I brought the pallu front to create a a blouse-like drape to showcase its beautiful golden design.
