Men in whiteTill some time back, a wedding was more or less ‘women oriented’, where the focus of attention was on the bride and the other women of the household. Wedding shopping meant endless discussions on what sarees to buy, whether budgets would allow for matching jewellery, accessory shopping, and of course make-up. The men of the house, poor things, were the last of consideration. At best, they would wear a suit or a churidar-kurta, never mind if this made all the men in the family look alike.

But in the last decade or so, fashion for the men has gone through a radical change. The new wave of designers sweeping the Indian fashion scene have ensured that men now have a larger range. Sherwanis, kurtas, in zardosi, resham or chikan embroidery, in silk or other richly textured material.

Style and classMany people come in with movie pictures and want to remake what they’ve seen.
Raj Narayan & Seema singh Zokarkar Jayashree Patel a Boca Raton resident hops onto an airplane from Florida to New York along with her mother. Straight from the airport, they speed off to a showroom near 7th Avenue, where Patel delves into a massive collection of Hakoba saris, selecting five for herself. What’s unique is that the entire purchase costs her only $1,000 and, in a few minutes, she is headed back home.

This is just a glimpse of jet-set wedding shopping, where brides and grooms learn about the best shops across the United States and travel to them to buy their finery, rather than simply making do with whatever is available at their neighborhood shop. What’s more, a quick flight often makes the most sense financially, as the discounts that one gets at these specialty shops more than offsets the travel costs.

Dupattas - Style StatementsHave you seen the way a really attractive woman can sometimes leave or enter a room? With a swish, a swirl, a blur of beautiful dupatta… That colourful swathe of cloth thrown around the shoulders can sometimes be the most important element in a salwar-kameez or churidar-kurta ensemble. Whether it is studded with Swarovski crystals, or is humble Bandhini, plain cotton, or a strip of crushed golden tissue, dupattas do add a certain something to the whole look of an ethnic ensemble.
 
In the 50s and 60s, the dupatta, referred to more commonly as a ‘chunni’ or ‘chunri’ was a mere strip of georgette or chiffon, matched to the exact colour of the kurta or salwar, to the nth degree. Heroines with bouffant hairdos, tight kurtas and trailing wisps of georgette, pranced across the Hindi screen, be it Asha Parekh or Sharmila Tagore, Kalpana or Sadhana, pursued by heroes who sang ‘Lal chhadi, maidan khadi…’ and other such stuff. Although the dupatta then was such a universal element of a feminine wardrobe, it was not given so much importance as the main dress. Plain colours, pastel shades – that seemed to be the main avatar of the 60s dupatta.
