The saree, a garment that is symbolic of the Indian subcontinent’s culture, has fluid identities. It is traditional yet modern, conservative yet sensuous. Exemplifying the outfit’s multifaceted identity, this collection of designer sarees by Anita Dongre indicates just how powerful an impression this six-yard garment can make. A sublime collection of handcrafted Benarasi silk sarees adorned with Zardozi, beautified with Gota Patti, embellished with pearl and sequins, accented with floral motifs, and bordered with ornate zari work, these essentially party-wear sarees ooze resplendence. Other sarees in the collection include those made of net and featuring myriad embellishments as well as those with digitally printed flowers. The vivid colours – cobalt blue, gold-tinted yellow, vermillion red, sage green, and the like – bespeak the brightness of the Indian colour palette. Given the sheer richness of the sarees, they are best suited to be worn at weddings and parties, although some of the sarees -especially the digitally printed ones - can be worn to any formal event. In fact, it is well known that Anita Dongre’s bridal sarees are the first choice of numerous Indian cine-stars as well as international celebrities who are known their fine sense of dressing. These ladies’ sarees by Anita Dongre can be ordered online or bought at the label’s retail stores. Customers, residing anywhere in India, may themselves of free shipping.

From the Fashion Sage’s Mouth
Anita Dongre’s richly worked Gotta Patti sarees must be accessorized in a way that will keep the opulence at the fore while adding a touch of contemporary elegance. For an evening wedding, wear the royal blue Anaka silk Benarasi saree, adorned with Dori, Gota Patti, zardozi, and sequins. Break the heaviness of this uber-traditional ensemble with a mega-sleeved or halter-neck blouse. Top up the look with gold chandelier earrings, golden stilettoes and a deep blue Potli bag. For a relatively low-key albeit important affair, choose the digitally printed powder blue Katina saree. Enhance the beauty of the outfit with a three quarter, deep-neck blouse. Seal the look with a Polki diamond choker and jhumka set and matching blue mojaris.
