My Take on 6 Yards

Sari or Saree is a traditional Indian female attire from the Indian subcontinent that consists of a drape varying from six to nine yards (4.5 metres to 8 metres) in length. As many already know how to wear it in the traditional manner, I wanted to think out of the box and give the 6 yards a more contemporary look. My client showcased this look at one of the Indo-Western events in Seattle and was well appreciated.
