At the fashion show, I arrive bright and early. Needless to say, the start of the show is delayed. I take my seat and spend the time watching the glamorous audience around me. Designer dresses, elegant sarees – there’s a lot to take in. A sudden lull in the conversation makes me turn to look at what the matter was.
There she was – a beautiful lady wearing one of the most gorgeous cut work kanchipuram sarees. The timeless elegance of the classic maroon shade is accentuated by the traditional peacock motifs in cut work, which feature on the border and pallu. I notice the sea of heads turning to follow her as she struts confidently down the hall way towards her front-row seat.
Was she a model or a socialite, I wonder? Either way, it’s clear that we’ve seen the showstopper before the show has started!
