If there’s one garment that can look effortlessly chic on anyone, it’s the very versatile sari. It has been the go-to choice for Indian women for a long time, but in recent years, it has rightfully claimed its place as a fashion staple as well. If you don’t want to compromise on comfort while making a style statement, you can never go wrong with a sari. To highlist these unique aspects of the sari and a lot more, we’re coming to you with 9 Yards by Femina, powered by Beena Kanan.
This two-day special virtual event is slated to be a treat for fashion enthusiasts and will celebrate the sari in all its glory. While the sari’s importance in Indian culture has been incomparable, it has evolved with time to suit its modern wearers without losing its essence. From learning about the journey of the outfit over the years to the latest trends and tips on styling that will elevate your sari game, there’s something for everyone here. In fact, an unmissable aspect of the festival will be a mix of expert sessions, panel discussions, and designer showcases from some of the biggest names in fashion. The event features Mouni Roy and will also host sessions by Manish Malhotra, Gaurav Gupta, and Stefano Funari.
Other sessions include discussions on upcycling and the sari as a gender-neutral garment, a conversation that is not had often enough, because if you look around, it’s not just women who’re slaying in saris. So, get ready for a mix of expert sessions, contests and giveaways, and, of course, a sari shop for you to indulge in some retail therapy. A huge shoutout to our title sponsor Beena Kannan, whose saris are often on our wishlists!
