A Saree signifies Indian femininity. It is the oldest garment that has survived modern India. It has come to us all the way from Indus Valley Civilization! The only unstitched garment that embellishes women beautifully is a saree.
From Indira Gandhi to Mandira Bedi, all women, be it a politician or a business woman or a homemaker, women have gladly accepted this traditional wear. It embellishes the beauty of a woman.
Adorn it with a pair of beautiful ear rings, bangles and bindi and look wonderful! Drape it in different ways and express your personality! A saree can cast a magician’s spell on people around you!
We at WomenNow had come up with this amazing contest called ‘Desi Diva’ wherein all you beautiful desi women could showcase us your saree skills!
