My personal designer!

We all have our personal favorites when it comes to choosing our designer wear. Some may agree to labels like Dior or Louis Vouitton. Others may settle for the Indian brands of Ritu Kumar or Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Well, if you ask me, I do not really have to splurge on designer labels, especially when I have an extremely creative and talented designer right at home.

My mother is not someone who has a fashion school degree neither does she practice Fashion Designing as a profession. She happens to be a complete home-maker with a huge passion for stitching and fashion. Combining both, she creates pieces that totally blows me away.



This saree is one of my mother’s creations. She assembled pieces of brocade and raw-silk and stitched them all together.



Half of the saree consists of plain red raw silk and the other half consists of red brocade with green motifs. The whole saree was bordered with green raw silk.

I believe we all are creative designers deep within. All that is needed is your imagination to run wild. You have no idea what miracles may be created.

For the final touch, keep that gorgeous smile on and stay stylish. Do not forget to leave your comments and suggestions.



  1. […] This post happens to be extremely special to me. Apart from the fact that today happens to be a Friday (which calls for a whole lot of planning for the weekend), I will be flaunting one of my Mum’s most beautiful creations. Mum has been quite enthusiastic since her young days about designing. Although Fashion Designing has never been her profession, her creativity and out-of-the box ideas always intrigued everyone around us. In fact she has been my personal stylist, ever since I was born (she used to design and stitch clothes of baby-me in her sewing machine). But her styling and designing history goes well beyond that. She tells me stories of the maxi-dresses with ruffles and frills she has designed and many things more. Some of my most beautiful Saris have been designed by her. Check them out here and here. […]
