Aavaranaa’s MAGICAL DRAPES a workshop on the art of Styling & Draping sarees for festive Occasions by Ashwini Narayan.
A season of magic awaits of us as we prepare for the big festive season that starts with Navarathri, Diwali and stretches all the way to Christmas ending with Pongal. For many of us, the season is when we bring out our silks & fine jewellery. Chennai’s weather also plays sport and cooperates. This year we are celebrating the magic & enchantment in our collections.
In keeping with theme, we wanted to bring down ace saree stylist & drape artist Ashwini Narayan to conduct a special workshop for our customers. This workshop is open to saree enthusiasts in chennai. The idea behind the workshop is to explore contemporary styling & draping ideas that can put a unique spin to our traditional weaves.
Our festive collection of sarees always has a mix of contemporary & traditional kanchipuram silks, organzas, chiffons and kotas. This year our theme for sarees & ready-to-wear range is “Enchanted Forest”. We explore myriad floral & leaf motifs, prints and colours transporting you into your favourite forest range.
Ashwini will be exploring a variety of drapes demonstrating how one carry them off with elan for occasions and parties. Comfort & style have been the key value for all our creations and we believe we can’t be truly ourselves till we are comfortable. So the workshop aims to guide people to exploring their comfort drape, let them know it’s okay to bend rules and find a drape that lets their personal style shine through.
If you have always liked sarees but have found the draping style too restrictive or dated, this workshop might be the right thing for you.
