In Pratima Gaurav

Recently, Pratima Gaurav showcased her cocktail collection at Chamomile where Manasi, Nethra and Malini were photographed dressed in the designer’s saris. Personally, I love these simple, minimalist saris (will exclude the ruffle sari from this list, it isn’t for me).

Have a favorite look?

    • Completely agree. There is absolutely nothing special about any of these sarees! Extremely ordinary – it appears as if no thought has gone into these creations.

      • I think its minimalist designer wear for women who do not want to wear MM kind of sarees. Its designer, in that you don’t get such elegant and well-made designs elsewhere.

    • I agree. You need to put some effort into making the saree stand out. For example: If the back of the border had a print on it instead of the blah purple shade …

      Anybody with an eye for color and a tailor can recreate this saree in a day – why pay the premium for a “designer” then?

        • I know it seems that way – I know a lot of my relatives in India wouldn’t dream of paying the premium for such a saree, saying they can go get the material from a fabric store and have a similar border stitched on for less than half the price! But I don’t know, when you get up close to them the finishing and attention to detail just isn’t there, which is what you get with a designer saree. You could say the same about a sabyasachi, a lot of his designs are just a border tacked on – but they still stand out from the crowd, theres just ‘something’ about them!

  1. Only nethra looks comfortable in the saree. The others are like : I cant move, or it will fall… goodness, these woman got to practice wearing saree more often…

    And why does mansi scott have a hair helmet ?

    Saree wise, love the baby pink. Would look lovely on a darker woman.

  2. the borders are hand embroidered – the elegance of it all and simple embroidery makes it designer – plus the blouses. you dont need bling all over to make things stand out. The shaded look, colours all work

  3. Love the ruffled look….in my opinion, that is the only saree here that would go for a designer “effort”! The ruffle saree has a playful look, wasn’t it the Ambani lady who had it on some cover a while back…she made it look classy!

  4. Don’t see the big deal about the first saree, the yellow with the purple border; looks like a bazaar buy. But I do love the ruffle saree ( does have a playful look as one commentator mentioned) and the pink/peach saree is very pretty.

  5. I like Mansi Scott’s sari…not the way she’s worn it…Designers are all about the fit, the finish, the construct and aesthetics. 90 percent of the designers in India would not qualify in this category( I am talking about the socialites posing as designers…there seems to be a lot more of them and seems to be the favourites of the B-brigade.)
