Some of us call it Navratra, some call it Kullu Dussehra, some call it Bommai Golu, and some even call it Bommala koluvu. No matter what we name the festival, the truth is that each one of us is equally excited about it. However, with festivals also comes the dire necessity to look total ethnic and gorgeous. And, there is nothing that can make u look more stunning and beautiful than the Indian National Dress itself – The Saree.

What to wear in Monsoon 



Monsoons or the rainy season poses a big problem when it comes to deciding what to wear. Torrential rains and muddy puddles are the things to be most wary of when choosing appropriate outfits for going out in the rainy season.

Since chiffon & Georgette is a lightweight fabric, it is easier to carry off during the rainy season. The most advantageous thing about chiffon & Georgette saree is that it dries up quite easily. Hence, when faced with a sudden outburst of rain and getting drenched as a result of it, chiffon & Georgette sarees take just few minutes to dry up considerably thereby not leaving one wet and damp for a long time. Also, being synthetic fiber Georgette does not leave behind stains to an extent that natural fibers such as cotton, silk do. That is precisely why these types of sarees are ideal when walking on muddy roads and hopping over muddy water puddles.

Attractive printed Georgette sarees also helps one to go through the drench in monsoon days. Bright colors should be chosen for sarees meant for the rainy season. Such sarees look very trendy without sleeves. Such sarees look on women in the teaching profession or medical line. Many office goers find themselves comfortable in printed sarees.

Jewellery is a tricky subject during this time of the year. For functional purposes, keep your jewellery minimal – stick to an interesting neckpiece, or a pair of earrings.

The best make-up advice for the monsoons is to keep it natural and minimal. Remember to use only waterproof products.

The monsoons needn’t be a damper on your personal style statement. Dress wisely, pay attention to materials, play with color, and have fun with your outfits. If you keep a check on all these factors, you’re sure to look like a diva, come rain or sun!

A perfect blend of Fashion in film



The term ‘Fashion’ refers to a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup etc. It refers to a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style with which a person dresses, as well as to prevailing styles in behavior.

Fashion has indeed become an integral part of our film industry. The audience follows what their favorite stars wear in movies, events etc. Indian cinema has completed 100 glorifying years and with this span of time tremendous change has been brought about in the stream of fashion. But one thing remains same.

In the early 1960s we have seen Bollywood actors following fashion trends that were quite traditional as well as ethical whereas now in 2013 we can also see the same flow. Today Indian culture, ethical values are beautifully depicted in Hindi films.

Movies are about escapism. However, whereas fashion celebrates clothes as an art form in themselves, costumes take on a different meaning in the context of a film – they play a supporting role to the plot and often take on a deeper meaning, used to transmit key messages and moods.

Therefore, fashion designers love associations with films because it gives their clothes wider cultural significance. Some films have a lasting impact on the fashion world and serve as perennial inspiration no matter what the season or current trends. Movies are a constant source of visual inspiration thereby promotes fashion in true sense.

Sareez wants to depict the fashion in “Filmy Fashion Funda” contest with “Get the Look” concept where you can easily correlate the current fashion with our Bollywood outfits…
Fashion lovers should take a look at our exquisite Diva look and enjoy the taste of fashion.
