Saris with a twist by Kiran Uttam Ghosh

New Delhi: Designer Kiran Uttam Ghosh, known for her chic and glamorous designs, has presented a modern avatar of the six-yard sari for the new-age woman.

The designer has launched her sari range under her pret line - Chiconomics. The collection is unique in terms of drapes and presentation.

"Blending my signature style, spirit and spunk, the saris are fluid and light weight, giving today`s women the simplicity and drama of a well cut ensemble with sensual, understated, sexy zipped-edges and smart pleats," Ghosh said in a statement.

Showcasing an entire gamut of ethnic wear in a lighter, playful and more contemporary tone, the saris are designed using cutting edge technology on fabrics like georgettes, chiffons and satin.

Ghosh says "the favoured colours this season are bright acid shades like orange, lime green and coral along with a more mellow jewel-toned range," and her collection is also dominated by the same.

The designer feels her clothes are understated and can appeal to those who do not like to go overboard with jazzy clothes.

"Our label has defied categorisation, and our clothes are understated, with silhouettes, characteristic and textures that refuse to be bracketed by terms such as eastern or western. This is what appeals to fashionistas," said Ghosh.
