Vogue + Bungalow8 presents: A U.P Sari Soiree
Thursday night would have been pitch perfect, if it wasn’t for my lousy sore throat. Regardless, I managed to share a few words and mingle with a dashing crowd of 100 plus people from the fashion frontlines of Bombay. It was a delightful sight of colorful saris and suits set against the exquisite backdrop of Bungalow 8, an 1857 building converted to an antiques store with a contemporary face.
The Sari Soiree was a simple concept. We asked a few of India’s leading designers to re-invent the country’s version of the staple black dress – the Sari – and create something new out of it to promote the spirit of reuse and reinvention. Featured designers included Little Shilpa, Miriam Sterhlau, Dadablui, Xylem, Sanchita and Indian couture’s irreverent dark knight, James Ferreira. Big thanks to Bungalow8’s Maithili Ahluwalia and her lovely family for organizing this spectacular evening and thanks to Vogue India for their support of The Uniform Project. Pictures below!
