Sari Soiree in South Bombay

In front of Bungalow 8, an 1857 building converted to an antiques and vintage store with a contemporary twist. This evening Bungalow 8 in collaboration with Vogue India is throwing the U.P a Sari Soiree, where select designers will feature their reinterpretations of a vintage sari. The proceeds from the sale of these items will go to Akanksha. Featured in the daily is a reincarnation of an organza sari with vintage silk piping designed by James Ferrierra, and a pair of flats quilted out of various vintage sari fabrics designed by Sanchita.

Photos and write up on the evening to follow.

At first glance I wondered where your vintage sari was. Then upon reading the description I was delighted to discover that the sari has been completely reinterpreted and sculpted into the pseudo boat-neck/ yoked/ peplumeque haute creation. Brava!


Lovely use of recycled fashion! Can't wait to see photos of the evening! Love the shoes!


The shoes! I love them!

Gorgeous! Love the repurposing ideas shared today. "Quilted flats." Who would have thought of such a thing? And, as another poster indicated, the top is so elegant! I'd love to see that with a floor-length skirt! Enjoy your visit and don't work too hard. ;-)


Oh, dear! I wondered why my post didn't go through the first time. Now I see that I'd typed the security words in the rating tag box! Sorry.....

Sheena this is beautiful and really captures the message of sustainable fashion. If we all reused and recycled and instead of buying the latest trends, we'd all be in a better place! Great work but make sure you take some time out for yourself too!
