How bollywood divas are transforming the ethnic traditional varieties of sarees?

Bollywood is giving a whole new meaning to ethnic fashion. At time when the western fashion like gowns and dresses are taking over, bollywood beauties are trying to make sarees the new sexy in fashion. However, all the bollywood sarees that you see fall into a particular category. Most of the sarees are made up of flimsy material like net, georgette, sheer, lace and so on. Hence they are practically see-through and add to the oomph factor of the saree. These sarees have become extremely popular among the younger generation who are following this trend like crazy.  In this hullabaloo what has gone missing are those Indian women sarees. Though we spot such sarees in some functions or the other, they are chiefly a favourite among the older generation. However some bollywood divas are in love with those traditional sarees and we can often see them sporting such sarees and reminding us just how gorgeous traditional sarees can be. Some such traditional ethnic sarees are as follows-

·         Kanjeevaram sarees- We have seen bollywood divas like Rekha rock this south silk sarees. Kanjeevaram saree is the very popular heavy silk saree. It is royal in every aspect and is a popular option for any event or function. The heavy embroidery is done with silver or golden threads which make the embroidery works stand out. Other than that, the saree is done up with a lot of motifs among which the peacock is the most classic one. This classic bollywood designer sarees online is an ultimate favourite of the yester year divas as well as divas like Vidya Balan.

The colourful works are entirely done by hand and a method known as block printing. On the heavily worked Bandhej sarees, there is embroidery work of mirrors, sequins and thread work. We had recently spotted Shilpa Shetty sporting a gorgeous Half Saree Online Shopping Bandhej saree.

·         Banarasi sarees- Another classy saree renowned for its heavy work, Banarasi saree is also used as a bridal saree. Banarasi sarees are known for their heavy embroidery and beautiful motif work. Singer Shreya Ghoshal wore a stunning red Banarasi saree in her marriage ceremony and she looked like a dream.
