[dropcap]N[/dropcap]avratri is celebrated for the victory of good over evil. Come Navratri and the air is filled with fun, frenzy and festive fervor. Not to mention the role of colors in the celebrations as everyone is bedecked with bright outfits, beautiful jewellery and illuminant makeup. The Navratri celebrations at our place are quite traditional as we mostly offer prayers, keep fasts and hop around durga pandals.
But, who can resist temptations when a brand like Triveni Sarees offers you a perfect saree for the festivity. Triveni Ethnics have sent us a beautiful saree from their newly launched Sentorini Vol. II collection in traditional hues and moods for Navratri. And we even thought to complete the last and seventh task of [highlight]#dare2drape[/highlight] challenge.
This beautiful Triveni Sentorini saree is crafted from georgette and chiffon materials. It’s a half-n-half saree with embroidered bold gold border. It’s all over printed with paisley and tie-n-dye motifs in the shades of red, white and orange. I have teamed it up with an exclusive gold brocade blouse which is hand-painted by my aunt Vineeta Mishra. Not to forget the dandiyas— they are made by mom at home with curtain rods, left-over fabric and useless decorative stuff.
About Navratri Dandiya Drape:-
It’s a unique drape, quite similar to seedha-palla, but the pallu is tucked in a different way. The corner of the saree pallu is tucked on the left shoulder by creating triangles to showcase both sides of the border. This drape makes the saree look like a lehenga-chunni set.
About Sentorini Vol. II:-
Triveni’s latest launch Sentorini-2 settles new vitality and brightness, felicitous for the approaching festivities and celebrations. As the season of jubilations approach, the mood sets for renewal of shopping, fun and explorations! Mid weight – colorful rich sarees in charming prints, traditional outlay and latest surface works from the collection are ready to establish you as an ethnic diva.
The field of the sarees play a bright palette, comprising of Yellows, Oranges and Pinks in combination with Blues, Greens and Whites to complete the printed base of Bandhni and Leheriya impressions. The occasional patch work of stone and embroidered laces add dazzle the field. Foil work, appliqué work, patch work on net fabric, gota and cut work adorn the borders of the saree.
Blouses are worked with brocades and viscose. Chunri print, net, Bhagalpuri printed fabric give a rich appeal and simultaneously make a comfortable bodice structure. Readymade laces and embroidered nets are a distinct feature of the blouses adding richness to the structure.
Compliment the outfit with sets of Kundan. Heavy but minimalist jewellery shall hit the perfect ten! Well, guess what may just explode as a latest ethnic trend . . . Try some Temple jewellery! Let the hair loose, spirits soar and mind refresh as we enter to the latter half 2016.
