When we talk about saree, we instantly start imagining a very feminine attire with a lot of poise and elegance. Though these are true, it is also a fact that saree clad women have fought in battles with an ease. Saree is that one garment that takes the shape of you. Thus, you can drape it however you are comfortable, take a step out of the conventional drapes and style a saree your way!
For the first time, photographer Kasturi Mukherjee turns muse and faces the camera for Prêtcurry and becomes a part of the #RealWomen series.
As a petite androgynous dresser, Kasturi has overcome lots of hurdles and questions over the passing years. She finally started finding things that suit her and unapologetically owns her style.
When Photographer Agnisha Basak & I approached her for a saree shoot, she very unhesitantly agreed. She carries herself with much confidence and doesn’t mind where her shoulder ends.
Saree your way…
Blouses aren’t her thing so clubbed her favourite blue t-shirt with a mint green saree. Instead of the conventional pallu on the side, draped it around her neck with a touch of a checkered bow!
The classic brown ankle boots visually give her that extra bit of length and looks oh-so-chic!
Fun Fact: Kasturi was the first person I approached to work with for Prêtcurry. Loved the way she framed her subjects and fearlessly kept her originality intact.
I draped the saree in a dhoti style for the lower body keeping in mind her comfort level. Clubbed it with a white shirt for the second look and gave a lil’ cute touch with these fun bows from HowrahBridge.
Who says you can’t carry bag packs with sarees?! Drape a saree your way and own your style like this young lady here.
” If someone drapes it like this, I don’t mind wearing sarees more often” – Kasturi
