8 gorgeous sari gowns we need to steal from Lakmé Fashion Week

For those who prefer to take the easy way out

Learning to drape those 6 yards is not an easy task. If you’ve watched innumerable How To Wear A Sari videos on YouTube and still haven’t gone further than tucking it in your petticoat, then you’re in luck. This season at Lakmé Fashion Week saw several designers send models clad in sari gowns down the runway in differently-draped styles. At Manish Malhotra, we saw a modern take on the style with a grey off-shoulder floral embroidered sari gown. There was another metallic version with a thigh-high slit that we can already picture on Deepika Padukone, jaws dropping as she strides onto the red carpet.

Amit Aggarwal followed suit with sari gowns in festive metallic colours with intricate pleated construction. Divya Reddy paired hers over a churidaar, and Jayant Reddy went the other way by styling it over a skirt. 

Embrace the modern take on the sari with these styles which are ideal for this wedding season. 

8 designer sari gowns you need this bridal season:

Amit Aggarwal

The designer's collection also saw a dramatic red sari gown with a ruched bodice and a pallu draped over the shoulder. Shoulder dusters finished off the ensemble.

Divya Reddy

Divya's interpretation of the sari gown featured a full-sleeved embroidered blouse worn with a sari over a churidaar in pastel peach. The designer gave a classic finish to her sari gown with a cummerbund and shoulder dusters.

Divya Reddy

A long-sleeved embroidered blouse paired with a dual-toned sari over a churidaar was seen at Divya Reddy's show. Shoulder dusters rounded off the elegance of the ensemble.

Jayant Reddy

The designer chose a fully embellished loosely-fitted blouse with a contrasting skirt and styled it with a pallu.

Sva by Sonam and Paras Modi

Sharara pants instead of the traditional ghagra allows for movement, while that embroidered choli could easily be worn with a pair of dhoti pants or a black draped skirt, if you want to mix things up.   

Manish Malhotra

You can expect the master of glamour to pull off a sari gown that looks fit for old Hollywood royalty. That dangerously high slit has us putting our trainer on speed dial.
