The Dhoti: Orange Saree and IBFW 3rd Day Review

The Dhoti: Orange Saree and IBFW 3rd Day Review

Hi Everyone,

The whole bridal week is very inspiring. Looking at the traditional styles, lovely splash of colors, creative embroideries, and different style of garments inspired me to do something different this time. So, I decided to wear a sari that too in dhoti style for the 3rd day of the India Bridal Fashion Week.


I created the design of this saree for a family event couple of months back. I decided the color pattern, the material and the look and I got this made from a saree shop. When I finally received this saree, I was so happy with the results.

I used a georgette plain orange saree and added dark blue and pink velvet border to go with it. I paired a black velvet blouse with it and for this look I used a black tight to go under the saree for the extra coverage.

The statement Azva choker that I’m wearing today is hand crafted in gold with an antique finish designed by a craftsman from Junagadh for a red carpet look. I’m happy to see such stunning red carpet looks and some amazing style statements by Azva for brides too which they can wear even beyond their wedding day.”
